The "road of Prosecco" is the first example of signaling Italian food and wine tourism, road route connecting the most interesting, pleasant and significant places in the wine culture, history and culture.
 The road of Prosecco dates back to 1966. Its 35 km are a succession of landscapes, horizons, vineyards, history, art, emotions that leave amazed at every turn.
Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG : The culture of the whole district can be identified with the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOC. Its origins are lost in time, but have indelibly marked the appearance, flavour and life of these lands.
The DOC production zone lies in the foothills between Valdobbiadene and Conegliano: 15 municipalities and about 10,750 acres of vineyards.
Thanks to its outstanding quality, Prosecco suits the taste of our modern consumer. Its versatility, fruity lightness and youth satisfy the most diverse palates.
Available in three different types - still, slightly effervescent and sparkling - it can be drunk throughout a meal, but is especially popular with fish hors d'oeuvres, risottos and, in the bollicine (bubbles) version, as an aperitif or festive wine. (Dal Consorzio a Tutela del Prosecco)

Every spring, a major event along the road of Prosecco, attracts visitors from all over the world. All of the wineries are open and you can taste and buy wine.
This event is called "Primavera del Prosecco"

The Collalto Family

This is a story of a family who arrived in the north of Italy more than 1 000 years ago, and who settled in the village of Susegana, which is a mere 60 km from Venice. They became a part of, and were leading figures, in all the major events, which shaped the history and the future of this region.
As can be expected, they were instrumental in setting up many different new ventures and businesses, but agriculture, and in particular, the vineyards and winemaking has always been a very important cornerstone in the Collalto family's existence.

Over the years, they became familiar with every square metre of their Estate, they noted how the grapes reacted to certain climatic conditions, which soils were best, which slopes got the most sunlight, they also experimented with different varietals and most importantly, they continuously invested in the most modern and up-to-date equipment available at the time. They still do!

Their rather large estate is overseen by a professional viticulturist. Together with the winemaker, he has been intimately involved with the creation of every single bottle which has passed through their winery. The winemaker is a firm believer in blending tradition with modern science. The wines that he has produced are therefore, not surprisingly, fine ambassadors of the successful marriage of these various aspects: they truly speak of the place where the grapes were grown, of the care, love and attention which the grapes and the wines have received on their way to being bottled, and not least of the use of the most modern winemaking equipment and methods.

The centrepiece of the Collalto family’s vast 1500 hectares Estate is the magnificent and ancient San Salvatore Castle, which straddles and dominates the whole horizon on the hills above Susegana, near Venice in Italy.
For more than 1000 years, the Collalto family has enriched the region by not only never forgetting their ancient traditions, but even more so by their constant development of environmentally-friendly and technological-based agricultural policies and improvements. The Count Collalto wine Estate is an integral part of this history and progress.
