The history of the "Prosecco" on these hills, began around 1500 and since ever the climate and geology of the soils have determined exceptional organoleptic characteristics; a centuries-old tradition made of intuition, determination and sacrifice by the men who have in it wanted to believe. Hence also the need to create more than 130 years ago, the School of Enology of Conegliano, which always form talents in the wine industry with the commitment to test and take care at maximum to the quality of this product.
In 1969, the first step to recognize the quality of this magnificent sparkling wine is obtained by inserting the Doc (controlled denomination of origin). But Prosecco is the name of a variety, which basically can be grown all over the world and only a few decades later it has been realized that it was made a huge mistake because on a wave of an unstoppable success, it began to be marketed white sparkling wines of various origins, but in fact sold for "Prosecco". The producers after 40 years of commitment in promoting this historic vine of the hills between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene have seen stolen the market by products of poor quality and dubious origin that in addition to steal market share are a risk of losing credibility of quality.

Thus born from this problem in 2009, the need to take a step further, a heavy sacrifice but inevitable, drop the Denomination of Origin "Prosecco" and change into the new Denomination of Origin Controlled and Guaranteed "Conegliano-Valdobbiadene", a name reserved only to the great Italian wines. The effort is great because the name "Prosecco" Today, it remains in the hands of a large land between Veneto and Friuli, in continuous slow enlargement, while the historic area, characterized by strong slopes and a wine made exclusively by hand, brings a new name, Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, still little known by the public but winning because is the name of a territory, the territory that has made known the Prosecco in the world.
