The territory of Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore
The long green ribbon of hillside vineyards that stretches between Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, represents one of the jewels of Italian wine making. The area famous for the production of Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore, covers a total of 20,000 hectares. The vineyards enjoy 6,000 hectares positioned on the sunniest slopes of the hills at an altitude between 50 and 500 metres above sea level.
These hills were transformed over the course of centuries by the relentless work of farmers and wine makers into splendid vigne giardino (garden vineyards) on the steep slopes, on which even today any intervention is done by hand. The Spagnol vineyards are spread out over some of the most productive zones, from Valdobbiadene, with the hillside known as “Col del Sas”, passing through Vidor, Farra di Soligo, and Solighetto. Here the Spagnol Family owns one of the most prestigious vineyards from a historic point of view, which is one of the vineyards owned by the Count Balbi Valier, the man who gave his name to the Selezione Balbi, the Glera vine clone used most commonly even today.
