During the lockdown period, how badly, did we crave a good glass of Prosecco out in the great outdoors, in the company of our loved ones, instead of staring at a computer screen?
Drinking a glass of Prosecco Superiore DOCG is much, much more: it is like savouring the unique charm of its history.It is sparkling, fresh, light, with subtle notes of flowers and all the character of the Veneto hills and the indigenous vines it comes from.
The Nexa Wineroads take us across the Veneto plains to the hills of Valdobbiadene and the lands of Prosecco Superiore DOCG. Gianluca Bisol welcomes us on the Cartizze hill, the most valuable vineyard in Italy, in front of a breathtaking landscape, whose harmony of colours, scents and flavours makes this territory unforgettable.
After a visit to the old Bisol family cellars – a cave carved into the rock, where the most prestigious bottles produced over the centuries are jealously guarded – we head upstairs for the wine tasting. We are among the very first guests of the area created by Bisol1542 during the lockdown period and used for reception and sales. A true symbol of rebirth!
Osteria Al Castelletto “dalla Clemi” is the go-to place for traditional cooking in a rustic chic ambience; the outdoor garden is the perfect place for a leisurely lunch in total safety. After lunch we reach the Abbey of Santa Maria di Follina to soak up its timeless atmosphere.: every corner radiates the beauty, mystery and spirituality of the past.
This area still has many stories to tell and we are happy to share them with you through our Wineroads. While waiting for the experience that we will tell you about next week, when we visit the Maeli winery on the Euganean Hills, feast your eyes on the photos of the Nexa Wineroads in the Special Projects section of our website.
