The lands of Prosecco, ancient lands always known for the production of excellent wines, are those that extend between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, which give the Prosecco vines, lying on the gentle slopes of a landscape characterized by abbeys and ancient parish churches.
In this marvelous environment the “prosecco road” winds its way from Conegliano to Rua di Feletto, built around the ancient Camaldolese monastery of S. Maria Assunta and then to S. Pietro di Feletto where the ancient Pieve medieval of the twelfth century with a Romanesque bell tower, it is the custodian of splendid frescoes from the 1200s and a “Madonna with Child and Saints” from the fifteenth century.
The itinerary then continues towards Refrontolo to visit the enchanting Molinetto della Croda, a romantic and old mill set in the rock, a production area renowned for Prosecco but also for the excellent Marzemino. The “prosecco road” then turns towards Pieve di Soligo, Solighetto and Farra di Soligo to finally reach Valdobbiadene, the undisputed homeland of Prosecco and Cartizze.
In the return it is possible to follow from Valdobbiadene along the Piave to rediscover the luohi of the Great War, places inextricably linked to the history of our country. Along this itinerary in the heart of the history it is possible to admire an altar-piece of Pordenone in the church of Moriago della Battaglia and access the Natural Reserve of the Island of the Dead on the Piave.
Continuing with a picturesque hilly landscape you can reach Possagno, the birthplace of the sculptor Antonio Canova, and visit its splendid Temple and the Gipsoteca which contains some of its most important works.
And after about ten kilometers you reach Bassano del Grappa, famous for the production of artistic ceramic artifacts and grappa and tagliatelle, we recommend visiting the historic center with the characteristic Ponte Vecchio, without forgetting to stop at osteria of the Nardini Distillery, located at the beginning of the bridge.
