Two hours north of Venice lies the town of Conegliano, its bombastic stucco buildings a statement of Italy’s Garibaldi-powered confidence. The village of Valdobbiadene (val-dob-YAH-dinnay) nearby is very different, its winding streets lined with rickety old houses perched along a steep hillside. Between these two very distinct towns lies one of Italy’s still-unsung delights: La Strada del Prosecco, or the Prosecco Road. Lining this winding loop are more than three dozen vineyards, or cantine, mostly family-run small holdings producing delicious versions of the Veneto region’s best-known sparkling wine Prosecco. Famous accross Italy Prosecco is only produced within this small area on the steep Prosecco hills. Some of the family run vineyards still pick the grapes by hand to produce the best quality of Prosecco. Made in small quantities and therefore not available outside of the region here at The Italian School we have good friendships with the artisan producers of these Proseccos. Tastings are only available by appointment only and are available as part of our famous Prosecco Tour.
Set within idyllic green countryside the beautiful Spa Hotel offers panoramic views and an outdoor pool.
