The region
Valdobbiadene

The Conegliano Valdobbiadene area is located in a hilly zone 50km away from Venice and about 100km from the Dolomites. The conformation of the territory assures a temperate climate all the year. The prevailing southern exposition, the steepness of the hills together with the frequent and fresh wind make sure that the summer rains don’t compromise the life of the vines.
