On Sunday, 26th March 2023, we will celebrate the Regional Day for the Veneto Hills, now in its second year.
The project was created with the precise intention of enhancing the natural, historical, cultural, sporting and food and wine heritage of our Veneto Hills, whose wealth is made up of a mosaic of unique landscapes, small villages, remote churches, ancient crafts, popular traditions and typical products.
How could Primavera del Prosecco Superiore forego this opportunity to promote the Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, a UNESCO World Heritage Site? Here’s what our Wine Exhibitions and the Beato Toniolo Institute – Le Vie dei Santi have thought of and prepared for you!
