Prosecco Area of Production

The Prosecco DOC production area is located in northeast Italy, one of the most stunning areas in the Italian peninsula, more precisely in the territories of 5 Veneto provinces (Treviso, Venice, Vicenza, Padua, Belluno) and 4 provinces in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Gorizia, Pordenone, Trieste and Udine).

The recognition of the D.O.C. and the international protection of the Prosecco name have crowned the efforts of the producers and local institutions to defend this wine’s precious reputation.

A wine with Controlled Designation of Origin status is produced in compliance with very strict rules in a specific geographical area which is historically renowned for its Prosecco production. The specific environmental conditions of the area give it its characteristic qualities.




The Glera grapes

The grapes used to make Prosecco DOC are mainly Glera, a native variety from northeast Italy known since Roman times.

Glera is a white grape variety. Its shoots are a hazelnut brown and it produces large, long bunches of golden yellow grapes. The shoots are trained to grow vertically, thinned out when in excess, trimmed and tied back to create a microclimate which encourages the formation of aromatic substances in the grapes.
