Treviso Treviso : The Prosecco Wine Route From Conegliano To Valdobbiadene, Italy

This road winds around through the hills cultivated with vineyards between Conegliano, Vittorio Veneto and Valdobbiadene. A gentle landscape composed of grapes and huts, farming towns and historical cities, age-old parish churches and castles, a land that humans have shaped over the centuries, making it one of the prettiest corners of Italy.

The itinerary can be done in one or more days, it is worth spending the night to experience the beauty of these utterly peaceful areas, maybe taking the time to visit some wineries. There is a selection of hotels in Treviso Province. For those who prefer a different type of accommodation, there is a vast selection of cozy bed-and-breakfasts and farm houses on the Prosecco Wine Route in the historic center or open country side.

 

Conegliano

besides being an important industrial center, is a city with a historical heritage to discover. Elegant buildings with decorated facades flank Via XX Settembre dating back between the 15th and 17th centuries. Along the way is the frescoed loggia of the Scuola dei Battuti (the interior hall is also very beautiful) and the Duomo. The latter contains important works of art including a splendid altarpiece by Giambattista Cima. The Castle sits in a dominant position on the hill. One of its towers is home to Conegliano's Museum.

 

The Prosecco Wine Route departs from the castle and runs along the ridges of the hills to San Pietro di Feletto, where there is a pretty Romanesque parish church from the 12th century. The road continues through a gentle landscape of grapevines and patrician villas until reaching Refrontolo, a town in a scenic position on the plains with mountains surrounding it.

In Refrontolo, don't miss the romantic scene of Molinetto della Croda, an old 16th century watermill set in the rocks next to a large waterfall which drives the wheel. The watermill has been restored and is open for visits. From the watermill the road continues climbing in a beautiful landscape of grapevines clinging to high uneven hills, visitors cannot help but be dazzled by this scene that human ingeniousness has managed to wrest from nature.

 

Follina

Follina is a town with ancient origins, where the Santa Maria Abbey, built in the 12th century in late Romanesque style, stands among attractive 16th and 17th buildings. The abbey was founded by a group of Cistercian monks who started a prosperous wool processing business here.
The exterior of the church is simple and reflects the stylistic canons of the Cistercian order; the large wooden portals and central rose window are remarkable.
The interior is filled with frescoes and works of art: the high altar contains the very old statue of the Madonna del Sacro Calice, from Nubia, dating back to the 4th century AD. The statue is the protagonist of a miraculous story that still today attracts pilgrims as a sign of devotion. The most fascinating spot for visitors are certainly the cloisters, which form an ambiance of rare charm.
Visiting hours: from 8:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

 

The Prosecco Wine Route continues towards Valdobbiadene in a landscape featuring vineyards and chestnut woods. You reach what is the epitome of the Prosecco area, the area of the treasured Cartizze spumante wine between the villages of Santo Stefano, San Pietro and Saccol. Here is where the most beautiful views of the Prosecco Wine Route are found, from the main road, lookouts open over the vineyards below in a breathtaking spectacle. The area contains the highest concentration of wineries, many of which are open for visits.

Valdobbiadene

The road ends here in Valdobbiadene, a town located in a green valley on the pre-alp foothills and overlooking the Piave riverbed. In the center there is a large square surrounded by Neoclassical buildings including the Duomo and a majestic 18th century bell tower. The city is the capital of spumante (Italian champagne) and hosts the annual Forum dello Spumante in the splendid Villa dei Cedri.

 

 

From Follina, it is possible to make a 15 km detour to Vittorio Veneto, a city filled with history and culture. The road runs along the valley passing the town of Cison di Valmarino, dominated by the Renaissance Brandolini castle, which can be visited. A major artisan festival is held in Cison di Valmarino every August. Continuing on you encounter the villages along the small Lakes of Revine, with typical rural houses built in local stone.
