Did you know a vine plant can become more than 100 years old? The older the plant gets, the sweeter and aromatic becomes the grape, cause the production will slowly become smaller and the plant concentrates only in producing a few, but excellent, bunches. One of few new information I learnt about Prosecco Superiore DOCG during these two days visiting the hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Wherever you look, the hills are covered in vineyards, some of which have a gradient of up to 70%! Which makes the harvest and work during the whole year quite difficult and intense. „Heroic cultivation“ is what it‘s called. Indeed, to tend these vineyards up to 800 hours’ work is required each year, compared to 150 on the plain. This area with its beauty and culture, has deserved the UNESCO World Heritage recognition! 👏🏻 @proseccocv #ad #ConeglianoValdobbiadene #proseccosuperiore
