The Territory

Valdobbiadene DOCG

In the 2009 Valdobbiadene becomes a territory with a Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita

Prosecco DOC o Valdobbiadene DOCG?
Many, in Italy and abroad have taken advantage of it’s name and it’s youthful inexperience but now it’s time for us to brandish its history and its undeniable identity.
It is the spontaneity, the gaiety which are guaranteed and these are signed Valdobbiadene. As per 1st April 2010 Simply Valdobbiadene DOCG.

The Territory
15 hilly communes which for over 50 years have guaranteed the DOC now become DOCG.  These cover approximately 8.300 hectares situated between the Dolomites and Venice.

The Grape
Currently known as “Prosecco” and which has been cultivated for over 400 years on the hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene will henceforth regain its antique name “Glera”.
The "Rive", available only in the fully sparkling style, represent the essence of terroir.
They are produced, in fact, exclusively from grapes that come from a single Comune or hamlet/village therein, thus highlighting the characteristics that a particular area confers on its wine. The Rive wines allow one, therefore, to get to know the manifold expressions of Conegliano Valdobbiadene in detail.
The term “Rive” indicates, in the local dialect, vineyards that are on steep ground, and the aim of the category is to underline the special quality of – and the many differences between – the various sites within the Denomination. 
The maximum yields are reduced to 13 tonnes per hectare; the grapes must be picked by hand and the vintage must be shown on the label.

In the Conegliano Valdobbiadene zone there are 43 Rive, which offer an equal number of distinct territorial expressions.
