Tapahtuma > Vino in Villa Festival

VINO IN VILLA FESTIVAL Art and Culture in Conegliano Valdobbiadene Vino in Villa is the most important annual event devoted to the wine of Conegliano Valdobbiadene. It takes place on the third weekend of May in the heart of the production zone, and stems from the Producers’ Consortium’s desire to tell journalists, members of the wine trade and consumers about our wine and the area it comes from. Now in its 18th edition, in 2015 Vino in Villa is becoming a real festival of culture, aimed at revealing the many different worlds that have been generated during the course of the history of wine, a beverage that was already highly prized in ancient civilisations: artistic, philosophical and poetic worlds, which will allow us to comprehend how the symbolic power contained within what was once referred to as the nectar of the gods is almost unlimited.

The meetings of this cultural programme will be conducted in Italian.

The producers association Consorzio di Tutela Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore was founded in 1962 to laid down a set of production rules, and today it gathers nearly all the local producers under its umbrella. As well as promoting viticulture and oenology development, the association’s work is dedicated to guaranteeing and improving the quality of Conegliano Valdobbiadene, and to publicising and protecting its image in Italy and abroad.

Prosecco is one of the best-known and most popular sparkling wines in Italy. Its history began on the
hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene (in the northeastern part of Italy in the Veneto province some 30
miles from Venice and 62.5 miles from the Dolomites), still the source of its highest quality. In 1962
eleven vintners desirous of protecting and valorizing their wines founded the consortium. Thanks to its
work, in 1969 Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene was granted DOC status and in 2009 became a
DOCG, bearing the name of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore. DOCG conferral is the
territory’s seal of approval as the finest expression of Prosecco.
Wine production in this territory is extremely old and centuries of human endeavor have changed the morphology of the landscape to favor vineyards,
creating scenery so unique that it may be given UNESCO World Heritage status.
Prosecco in particular has been grown on these hills for a very long time. Studies and selections
date from the mid-19th century but it was in 1876, with foundation of the first
Italian enology school, that its official history began. First the enology school and then the
experimental viticultural institute laid the bases for the success of this wine, which local vintners finely
interpret in vineyard and cellar. Grape growers learned to plant vineyards high on the hills, where vine
cultivation is difficult and laborious because of steep slopes and work is almost exclusively manual. In
the cellar they learned to perfect the sparkling wine technique that entails re-fermentation in autoclaves
to preserve and enhance aromas. A technique so refined over time that today it is known as the
“Conegliano Valdobbiadene method”.
The Conegliano Valdobbiadene district covers 15 communities in the Treviso Prealps foothills.
The denomination’s vineyards cover over 6.000 hectars and yearly production of Conegliano
Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore amounts to some 79,000,000 bottles. Soil and climate conditions
and prevalently southern exposures for the slopes make this zone particularly adapted to grape
growing. The climate is pleasant, so mild and temperate that in the past Venetian nobles loved to spend
the summer here to escape the mugginess of the lagoon. Winters are not excessively cold and summers
are hot but not sultry, with humidity similar to that of central Italy. Rainfall is abundant and averages
49 inches a year. The grapes are grown entirely on the hills, shaped by the glacier of the Piave River
and its offshoots, which profoundly modeled the landscape. The characteristics of the zone fostered the
growth of rural settlements, mainly on the gentlest rises, which through the centuries were turned into
great embankments in order to grow grapes. The terrain varies in type and geological origin. In fact, the
rocks differ considerably and range from the white and marly to the sandstones on the northernmost
hills and the conglomerates and clay further south. The different soils, exposures, slopes and elevations
create perceptible organoleptic nuances in the wines, particularly in the Rive type, made exclusively
from vineyards in a single community or portion of it.
Deserving special mention is Cartizze, the denomination’s cru, where the homonymous wine is born.
On the high hills between the Santo Stefano, Saccol and San Pietro di Barbozza areas in the
Valdobbiadene community, Cartizze offers a perfect combination of gentle microclimate and rather
varied terrain, with morainic, sandstone and clayey soils that both drain off rainwater and conserve it.
The Cartizze vineyards cover only 265 acres on the highest hills and often the vines are very old.
Vineyard tending is exclusively by hand and the wine that results is a unique spumante, a true synthesis
of the territory.
