An authentic wine tour of the land of Prosecco where unexpected landscapes, rolling hills, villages, and scenic routes welcome you to the culinary traditions of the Veneto region.


Conegliano-Valdobbiadene territory

The area extends through the hills of the Province of Treviso between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, with the Dolomites to the north and the Adriatic Sea to the east, creating excellent microclimates for vine cultivation.

Wines have been produced here for hundreds of years and Prosecco was first mentioned in documents that date back to 1772. In fact, Conegliano-Valdobbiadene was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the strong bond between its ancient vine-growing culture and the land, as well as for its beauty: its terraced vineyards against an Alpine backdrop form one of Italy’s most stunning territories.

    Private Premium Tasting at Col Vetoraz


    Founded in 1993 by Francesco Miotto, Paolo De Bortoli and Loris Dall’Acqua, Col Vetoraz is in Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, the most traditional winemaking territory of DOCG Prosecco Superiore.

    It is a corner in North-East Italy endowed with one of a kind sceneries: steep slopes; terraced vineyards and the characteristic ciglioni; a chequerboard landscape with rows of vines and slopes; hilly ridges planted with vines rising between forests and villages. 

    Since the 17th century, the area has been greatly shaped by man and up until today, it requires a lot of effort to be cultivated. All work and the harvest are done by hand out of necessity due to the steeply sloping hills, earning the name “heroic viticulture” due to the demanding nature of labour. 

    The best place to enjoy this sight is on top of Col Vetoraz, in Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene. Col Vetoraz is located on Cartizze’s highest peak, at almost 400 metres. From here, you can look over the entire area, with the Alps and the vineyards climbing the steep slopes of the hill as the scenic backdrop. 

    Col Vetoraz has such a deep bond with the territory that it rebelled against a choice made in 2009, when “Prosecco” became an appellation extended to nine provinces between Veneto and Friuli.

    The simple distinction between "Prosecco" (the wine produced in those territories created in 2009) and "Prosecco Superiore" (the wine produced on the historical hills of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano) has ceased to convey a specific original identity.

    Starting from the 2017 vintage, Col Vetoraz has removed the term “Prosecco” from all of its labels and communication material, exclusively using the appellation "Valdobbiadene DOCG", considered as the most genuine expression of its roots.

    Tastings are done in a dedicated spacious room – fully equipped with large windows – whose view of the surrounding hills allows the synaesthesia between taste and sight; while the ears revel in the story of the wines produced here, expressively narrated by the company’s staff.

    Private Guided Winery Tour at Bortolomiol

    For the Bortolomiol sisters, this means greater territorial awareness and projects centred on sustainable agriculture. The tour will begin in a restored silk mill on the winery’s property with an overview of the history of the winery and the region. This will be followed by a walk through the winery’s park which features sculptures amongst the vineyards. You will then visit the production line inside the winery, learning how Prosecco is made.
