52th CARTIZZE AND VALDOBBIADENE DOCG WINE EXHIBITION
Santo Stefano, a small district of Valdobbiadene, continues to asset its philosophy of tenacious Resistance in which the landscape plays the role of a silent protagonist. The multiform Wine Exhibition of its small producers is accompanied by moments of intense beauty with educational walks in the hills to meet the peasant world that that landscape has shaped over the centuries, and on which UNESCO has placed its seal of uniqueness. The site of the exhibition is a small bizarre Museum of the Earth that offers Art, Poetry, Philosophy, Beauty, in combination with excellent food served in convivial and hospitable atmosphere. Lunches in the wineries, guest students, Ciacole (chat, for the locals) and oenological tales and a Spring of beauty… in Santo Stefano.
For PDP Guest Card holders: 10% discount on the first bottle purchased.
A cascade of wineyards exposed to the sun and disrupted by small villages and ancient farmhouses adorned with capitals and frescoes: this is how Santo Stefano, a small district of Valdobbiadene, appears to the visitors’ eyes. The district is entirely crossed by the Teva spring, which was of great importance in the past due to manufacturing activities developed along its course. It consists of three localities: Villa, located in the upper part, extends from the church of the cemetery to the parish church; Follo, which lies south towards Colbertaldo and San Giovanni; Teva, which follows the course of the stream from which it takes its name.
Absolutely not to be missed are the nineteenth-century Church of S. Maria Ausiliatrice in Follo, the Parish Church of S. Stefano, recently restored and the Oratory of Sant’Antonio. The latter, built in the thirteenth century, is the church of the cemetery of St. Stephen, characterized by a majestic pronaos in Doric style.
Santo Stefano has the privileged view on the Cartizze hills, which are the heart of the denomination, not only from a historical point of view, but also due to qualitative excellence of the grapes, which express all the characteristics of freshness and acidity and the typical aromas of this wine.
