The Best Prosecco Vineyards to Visit

Last Updated on May 13, 2024 by Jo Fitzsimons

borgoluce wine tasting

There are over 100 wineries in the Prosecco DOCG area alone. In this list, we share our favourites. These tend to be smaller, family-run vineyards that produce high-quality Prosecco.

Do I need to choose the wineries if I book a tour? Absolutely not. Our drivers have years of experience choosing the right wineries for each customer. By all means, send us any preferences but otherwise, you can trust us to take you to the best places. We focus on quality, which doesn’t always correlate with the big brand names you’re used to. I hope you put your trust in us on this.

If you’re planning your own trip, please don’t turn up at the wineries without a booking. Almost all wineries need to be booked in advance – they’re working vineyards and family-run with family commitments. Prosecco isn’t a wine-tasting region with a simple walk-in policy. Some readers have turned up without a booking and the wineries have asked me to leave a reminder here. The next step would be removing this guide, which I don’t want to do. Please be respectful and don’t ruin it for others.

Saturday and Sunday openings: Also note that many wineries close at the weekend. Don’t worry, if you’re taking a tour with us – we have a secret selection of wineries that will open for our customers, which means we can take you tasting any day of the week.

Paying for Prosecco tastings: all wineries charge a fee for Prosecco tasting. It’s typically an in-depth experience with multiple tasting glasses of premium Prosecco. You can often accompany your tastings with a food pairing. Good news for our tour customers – we get discounted tasting rates at many of the wineries we visit. Don’t worry, we always pass these savings directly on to you. There is no need to ask us to include the discounted wineries. We do this whenever we can, based on availability and to suit your itinerary.

We offer Prosecco Tasting Tours: Book a half day or full day tour. Find out more.

Adami

Board of cheese at Adami winery

On a personal note: The tasting room at Adami isn’t co-located with the vineyards but it offers a modern room with a beautiful patio and one of the best tasting walk-throughs I had in the region. The young lady teaching me about Adami Prosecco was passionate about the wines and deeply knowledgeable but, at the same time, lighthearted in her mission to help me understand and differentiate between the different styles.

Great for: learning about the Prosecco region in a fun, relaxed setting. There’s no such thing as a stupid question here (I tested that out).

Proseccos Available 

  • Prosecco Valdobiadenne DOCG
  • Prosecco DOC Treviso
  • 7 different Proseccos/types to try
View of vineyards from Adami winery

Highlights

  • Located in the Alta Marca area of Treviso (an area that’s been producing wine since the Middle Ages).
  • 3rd generation family-run winery that has been producing for over 90 years.
  • Harvest of grapes exclusively by hand.
  • Adami produces some single vineyard wines so you can taste the uniqueness of the characteristics of each hillside.

Adami has a modern tasting room which sits at the top of a hill amongst their vineyards, with fantastic panoramic views across the vines. They also offer a tasting with food pairings including a delicious selection of local cheeses from Vento’s own Ponte Vecchio cheese company.

Bastia

Bastia 6 wine bottles.

On a personal note: Bastia isn’t just one of my favourite wineries, it produces some of my favourite Proseccos. A family-owned winery, husband and wife duo Michele and Tania Rebuli are experts at balancing running the winery and raising their children. And that balance makes its way into their wines which have a perfect consistency from the first sip to the last.

With vineyards throughout the region, including in the coveted 108 hectares of the Cartizze hills, Bastia offers an impressive range of Prosecco styles from the natural Col Fondo to Cartizze Superiore. The Bastia family’s passion for nature, the land, the vines and the wines they produce is obvious from the high quality of their products and the numerous awards they have won over the years.

Great for: an intimate and personal tasting experience that offers truly excellent quality Prosecco. The modern tasting room with views over the vineyards (watching Michele at work while Tania takes you through the tasting) is a memorable experience.

Proseccos and Wines Available:

  • Valdobbiadene Cartizze Superiore DOCG
  • Valdobbiadene Extra Dry DOCG (mio)deserto
  • Valdobbiadene Extra Brut DOCG Introversø
  • Sparkling Fii Spago
  • Sparkling Capo degli Onesti “Col Fondo”

Highlights: 

  • Bastia has been run by the Rebuli Michele family for four generations.
  • During harvest season in September, the grapes are picked by hand by Michele and Tania with the help of volunteering family and friends.
  • Private tastings and tours can be organised at Bastia upon request and are held within the winery itself.
  • A chance to try a premium Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG.

Borgoluce

chairs and table in garden with wine glasses - Borgoluce winery

On a personal note: I know I’m not supposed to pick favourites but a trip to the Prosecco region isn’t complete for me until I’ve been to Borgoluce. They have the whole package on offer – as well as producing Prosecco, they keep buffalo stables for mozzarella and meat, there’s a choice of Borgoluce places to dine (see our restaurant guide); they even have accommodation at Foresteria Borgoluce – featured in our Best Places To Stay in the Prosecco Region.

Set over a sprawling estate, Borgoluce has an impressive commitment to biodiversity and sustainability. As a working farm, they educate the local children (and adults!) with a small animal petting area – I had a very happy interaction with a curious goat. They also have a heartwarming farm museum that takes you through the history of farming on the estate. But let’s not get too distracted by the many offerings at Borgoluce. They produce simply excellent Prosecco and it’s always a delight to have a glass of Borgoluce’s high-quality wine in your hand.

Great for: an agriturismo farm stay in the Prosecco region.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut and Extra Dry
  • Rive di Collalto Valdobbiadene DOCG Extra Brut and Extra Dry
  • Fotonico (Col Fondo natural wine)

Highlights

  • Borgoluce has its own accommodation, a natural swimming pool, walking/cycle paths, a choice of restaurants and a farm shop.
  • They produce buffalo mozzarella, honey, olive oils, cured meats, beer and ancient grain pasta.
  • It’s possible to do a joint produce and Prosecco/wine tasting at the winery, or simply pick up a couple of bottles from the farm shop and enjoy them during your stay.

Borgoluce has beautiful tasting rooms which also come with a large outdoor terrace where you can sit and enjoy your wine and food tastings in the warm Italian sun.

Bortolomiol

Bortolomiol wine glass with stone wall and bottles

On a personal note: Bortolomiol has a definitively feminine approach to the wine business, being led by founder Giuliano Bortolomiol’s four daughters. As well as focusing on producing high-quality wines, the women run social initiatives in the wider Parco della Filandetta (Filandetta Park) which houses the winery, with a focus on female empowerment and protecting the natural environment. One such recent land art project saw local female artists competing to design work; which sparked conversation around the environment and gender issues.

Great for: experiencing a winery with a feminine approach which also has a strong focus on arts and culture, social enterprise and sustainability.

Proseccos and Wines Available:

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G.
  • Valdobbiadene Cartizze Superiore D.O.C.G.
  • Prosecco DOC Tranquillo (Still)
  • Piave Cabernet DOC
  • 18 different Proseccos/wines to try
  • Bandarossa Grappa Riserva
Bortolomiol vines

Highlights:

  • Founder Giuliano Bortolomiol was the first sparkling wine expert to come up with the idea of creating a Brut Prosecco, and is often referred to as the ‘grandfather of modern Prosecco’.
  • The winery crafts a sparkling wine called Filanda Rosé, dedicated to the women who worked in silkworm mills (or filanda) around Valdobbiadene at the same time the wine industry began to boom in the area.
  • The tasting room is also located inside a restored silkworm factory called Antica Filanda.
  • There is a small outdoor Greek-style stone amphitheatre where live performances and events are hosted during the summer months.
  • Banda Rossa, or Red Band, was a mark that founder Giuliano Bortolomiol only put on bottles containing the best Extra Dry of the year and that he kept for real friends. The Bandarossa label still marks the winery’s best wines today

Campion

wooden table and chairs under umbrealla at Campion winery

On a personal note: Owner Gregorio’s family truly oversee every aspect of Campion, with his sons taking care of the winery, and wife and daughter running tours, tastings and their beautiful onsite agriturismo B&B. With their unbeatable hospitality and quality Prosecco, it’s no wonder both locals and tourists can’t stop coming back to Campion over and over again.

Great for: a homely and authentic agriturismo stay at a popular local family-run winery.

Proseccos and Wines Available:

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G.
  • Valdobbiadene Cartizze Superiore D.O.C.G.
  • Prosecco DOC

  • 11 different Proseccos and wines to try
three glasses of white and rose campion prosecco

Highlights:

  • Campion has remained strictly family-run since being opened by Gregorio in the late 60s.
  • Gregorio’s sons Francesco and Fernando now oversee the entire winemaking process.
  • 20 hectares of vineyards, located in 11 different locations, including the prestigious Cartizze hills.
  • Campion’s farmhouse is a lovely spot for a local agriturismo stay, located in a wing of the winery itself and with a private garden and swimming pool overlooking the surrounding vineyards.

Website: Campion


Col del Lupo

5 bottles of Col Del Lupo prosecco

On a personal note: Col del Lupo is another of the Prosecco region’s (and my) most beloved independent family-run wineries. This can be felt not only in the quality of their Prosecco but in other small touches such as the utterly delicious homemade focaccia that accompanied my tasting. Giulia is bursting with passion for the land, the Col del Lupo wines and the many creative projects she endlessly has in hand.

The last time I visited, the family was working to convert an old abandoned building into a new tasting room. Below the room is a unique en-suite bedroom for guests looking for an extra-special overnight stay. The renovation is now complete and it’s even more impressive than I imagined it could be. Perched right at the top of a hill with the Col del Lupo vineyards spiralling down the hillside below, I haven’t seen a more romantic, breathtaking and remote location within the region. You have to see it to believe it. Check out our accommodation guide for more details.

There is a range of tasting packages to choose from. I highly recommend the hilltop tasting location if it’s available.

Great for: a family-run Prosecco tasting with amazing vineyard views.

Proseccos Available:

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G.
  • Col Fondo natural wine
  • 5 different Proseccos to try

Highlights:

  • Col del Lupo began in 1942 when the family’s grandfather, Aldo, inherited the land from his father. The winery is now run by his daughter, niece and nephew.
  • The family has opened an impressive modern tasting room inside an old building perched on top of one of the hills within their vineyards.
  • Grapes are harvested entirely by hand.
  • Col del Lupo uses renewable energy derived from their own photovoltaic system and since 2018 has been in the process of converting to completely organic farming.
  • The homemade focaccia which accompanies the wine tasting is some of the tastiest you’ll ever eat.

Website: Col del Lupo


Col Vetoraz

Col Vetoraz View of rolling hills with pink flowers

On a personal note: Col Vetoraz was the first vineyard I visited in the Prosecco region so it holds a special place in my heart. I also really love the Prosecco from here. The vineyard tasting room has grown significantly since I last visited – when I did a tasting stood at a tiny counter – to a purpose-built room with a gigantic table, sweeping bar and floor-to-ceiling views. Still, they are managing the popularity well and the guy who took me through a tasting was as enthusiastic and knowledgeable as at the smaller vineyards.

Great for: views over the Prosecco hills while you taste and wonderfully located for the Prosecco vending machine which is just up the road.

Proseccos Available:

  • Prosecco Valdobiadenne DOCG
  • Brut Pink Twelve Moons
  • Grappa (try this at your own risk, my friends)
  • 7 different Proseccos/types to try
four bottles of Col Vetoraz Wines

Highlights

  • One of the highest points in the Cartizze (best) grape-growing area of the Prosecco region.
  • The Miotto family arrived in Col Vetoraz in 1838 and started growing vines.
  • The vineyards are still run in partnership with a descendant of the family.

Website: Col Vetoraz


De Riz

De Riz wine tasting room with barrels and chairs

On a personal note: De Riz is a great winery to visit for a varied selection of Proseccos and wines. You can choose to do a tasting with just their selection of Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G, which I took part in mainly due to time constraints, or do a full tasting with Prosecco as well as De Riz’s range of other red, white and rose wines (next time).

Great for: trying a whole variety of local wines from Prosecco to Col Fondo to still red and white wines.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • Semi-sparkling rosé/white “Col Fondo”
  • Manzoni Moscato Rosa Dry Sparkling wine
  • Red wine Marca Trevigiana I.G.T.
  • 11 different Proseccos/wines to try
Vineyard at De Riz.

Highlights

  • The winery was founded by the De Riz family in 1983.
  • Their slogan is ‘land, love and prosecco superiore’.
  • In 2009, the winery was completely renovated and modernized with new technologies to expand the production of wine in the bottle.
  • During the summer, tastings take place right within the vines, while during the winter you can sit in the tasting room overlooking the vineyards or inside the winery itself for larger groups.
  • De Riz is one of the only wineries in the region who will pair chocolate with their Prosecco.

Gemin

glass of Gemin prosecco with plant in background.

On a personal note: Gemin had a long history in the Prosecco region. It started with Bartolomeo Bortolomiol who was a passionate vintner as far back as the mid-18th century. He passed his land to his three sons, including Guglielmo Bortolomiol. The youngest of the three brothers was known as Gemin. And thus the Gemin vineyard was created.

Like so many of my favourite Prosecco vineyards, family is everything to Gemin. The three brothers run their own wineries but on intimate and friendly terms. Today, the large, modern tasting room at Gemin has a lively and exciting feel with the family’s passion for the wine effervescing out of the glass. But I was also wowed by Gemin’s efforts towards biodiversity. With wild, bee-friendly flowers sprawling between the vines, the family has bee hives and produces small batches of wonderfully unique local honey.

If the name Bortolomiol sounds familiar, it’s because it’s featured on this list, above (a winery run by one of Gemin’s brothers).

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Valdobbiadene DOCG – Brut and Extra Dry
  • DOCG Dry Millesimato Rive “Madre Paola”
  • DOCG Extra Brut Rive “Pioniere”
  • DOCG Cartizze
  • 9 wines to choose from
tasting room at gemin winery.

Highlights

  • Rive wines – superior quality with grapes picked from a single vineyard / zone.
  • The vineyards are spread across 6 hectares, all within the DOCG area.
  • Committed to biodiversity – actively keeping bees and producing honey.
  • Vinyyards in the coveted Cartizze area.
  • Gemin is a winery where everything is done by hand.

Website: Gemin


Gregoletto

Aurmn trees seen from tasting room at Gregoletto winery

On a personal note: There’s an energy to the Gregoletto family that is best observed in the variety of their works. From the vineyards to a beautifully restored Italian farmhouse to a thematic museum created with a hint of eccentricity. And, for those who have non-wine lovers in their group, the Gregoletto family is behind the region’s only brewery, Birra Follina. Best of all, visit once and you automatically feel part of the family. I think we’ll be trading Christmas cards.

Great for: a wonderfully varied visit – see the cellars (for that important photo with the barrels), taste the wines and visit the thematic wine book museum.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Prosecco Valdobiadenne DOCG, Prosecco Frizzante DOC
  • Colli Trevigiani IGT, Colli di Conegliano Bianco DOC
  • Grappa
  • 15 different Proseccos/wines/grappas to try
Gregoletto wine range and family picture

Highlights

  • Established in 1600, the family have been working the land since.
  • Cellars are situated within the original 17th-century house.
  • It’s possible to taste non-sparkling wines including a variety of red and white wines.

Website: Gregoletto


Guia

Guia tasting table with wine glasses and food

On a personal note: A tour and tasting at Guia was the ultimate trifecta of what visiting the Prosecco hills is all about. Starting with a walk through their vineyards with stunning views over the surrounding region, followed by a peek inside the winery and the chance to try the base wines straight from the tank, then finally a fun and informative tasting with the owner Mario’s son Edoardo, who even in his early 20s is already extremely passionate and knowledgeable about wine and helps run his father’s winery.

Great for: visiting a great family-owned winery with a true passion for what they do, and taking a walk through their stunning vineyards.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Prosecco Valdobbiadene DOCG
  • 4 different Proseccos to try
  • 2 sparkling white wines
Guia vineyard views with rooftops in italy

Highlights

  • Guia’s Prosecco can’t be found in any shops, even within Italy, but rather they rely on selling directly to their dedicated customers from across the world who keep coming back again and again.
  • Guia was started by Mario Buso in the 80s, however, his family’s connection with the land and prosecco production dates back to 1915 with his father Bortolo who was also a founding member of the Valdobbidene wine cellar, making the family important within the region.

Website: Guia


La Farra

La Farra Wine Tasting sheet and four glasses

On a personal note: La Farra has yet to open up its tasting room to the general public and it’s a newer winery, opened in 1997. So, I was in two minds about whether to include it here. However, they have some great Rive (Prosecco typically from the steepest hills that offer some of the best quality wines; if you see this wine at home (they do export), I’d recommend giving it a try.

Great for: wines which combine the typically floral fragrances of grapes from vines near Valdobbiadene with the fruitier flavours of grapes from Conegliano.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • Prosecco Treviso DOC
  • Rosé Brut Sparkling Wine and Pinot Grigio
  • 10 different Proseccos/wines to try

Highlights

  • Innocente Nardi, who runs La Farra with his bother Guido and sister Adamaria, is also the long-standing President of the Producers’ Consortium for Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore.
  • All the processes in the vineyard are performed by hand.
  • Lives by the philosophy of respecting the environment and not altering the natural morphology of the landscape.

Website: La Farra


L’ochera

On a personal note: Wine making is a multi-generational tradition within the Prosecco region so it’s an utter delight to see the next generation of wine makers turning their passion and family know-how into Prosecco. And the brothers behind the L’ochera winery are doing exactly that, producing Prosecco of such an excellent quality that you can’t help but feel impressed.

Even more spectacular is the area they are farming. With vineyards on land so steep that it promises backbreaking effort and manual harvest only, every sip of L’ochera’s Prosecco feels precious.

The winery is just starting out offering customer tastings and has a minimum of 4 customers on selected days/times and always by reservation. Book a tour with us and we’ll add L’Ochera to your itinerary where possible. I’m expecting great and expanded offerings from this winery, which has a prime viewing spot over the rolling hills in the heart of the region.

Great for: visiting a truly small family-run vineyard that has a passion for tradition and is showcasing what the next generation of winemakers is capable of in Prosecco.

Proseccos and wines available:

  • Lochera Spumante Valdobbiadene DOCG Brut
  • Lochera Spumante Valdobbiadene DOCG Extra Dry
  • Lochera Frizzante
  • Lochera Sedimenti
  • Lochera Tranquilo
Lochera vineyards near rolle.

Highlights

  • The next generation of winemakers using tradition to produce excellent quality Prosecco.
  • Their enthusiasm is evident from harvest through to the finished bottle.
  • One to watch – I’m expecting this winery to grow and grow in success.
  • A truly small winery run by two brothers.

Website: L’ochera


La Tordera

La Tordera three prosecco bottles in ice bucket

On a personal note: La Tordera is a family vineyard that has its roots in the Cartizze region of Prosecco (apologies for the car analogy but Cartizze is the Rolls Royce of Prosecco). Today, La Tordera’s Prosecco has become so popular the winery where you do the tasting is expansive. But don’t worry, they still do their picking by hand.

Great for: learning about sustainable viniculture.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG
  • Prosecco Treviso DOC
  • Sparkling Brut
  • 11 different Proseccos/wines to try
large cork shaped modern art sculpture at La Tordera

Highlights

  • The first vine was planted in 1918 by Bepi Vettoretti and his family have produced Prosecco and wine here ever since.
  • Harvest is carried out completely by hand.
  • La Toerdera’s motto is ‘Natural Balance’ referring to their continuous research into sustainable agriculture from environmental, economic and social points of view.

Website: La Toerdera


Malibràn

Malibran Vineyard with castle in background

On a personal note: Best breakfast I’ve ever had. Just kidding. Kind of. I indulged in the 6 Prosecco tasting and it was here that I discovered a love for Col Fondo – made in the traditional method, this style of Prosecco retains the yeast (making the Prosecco cloudy) and has only a slight sparkle. It’s not for everyone but it’s worth a try and there are two Col Fondos to taste at Maibràn.

Great for: a broad range of Proseccos where you can compare and contrast the different tastes including two Col Fondo Proseccos, a rosé sparkling wine and a selection of DOCG Prosecco of varying sweetness.

Proseccos Available 

  • Prosecco Valdobiadenne DOCG
  • Col Fondo (two types)
  • Rosé Spumante
  • 6 different Proseccos/types to try
Rose prosecco at Malibran vineyard

Highlights

  • Located in Susegana at the foot of San Salvatore Castle.
  • Three generations of viticulture continue today.
  • The current family members are returning to the traditional method and are actively restoring ancient vines.
  • Harvest entirely by hand.

Website:  Malibràn


Mani Sagge

Mani Sagge Vinyards with hills in the background

On a personal note: This is a bit of a teaser because Mani Sagge is not yet open to the public. Mainly because the winery has not yet been built. However, I’ve included it because I love the vision behind this new Prosecco brand; which includes a tasting terrace where people can stop by and have a glass or do a tasting or just sit back and enjoy the views. Having skipped a generation in terms of production, Mani Sagge is now being restored. If you want to know what a Millennial version of a Prosecco vineyard might look like, this is it.  You can follow the progress of the build on Instagram.

Great for: trying an ‘unconventional’ Prosecco Superiore DOCG.

Proseccos Available

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • 2 different Proseccos/types to try
Visit Prosecco Italy Mani Sagge Winery Wine Tasting

Highlights

  • Mani Sagge is Italian for Wise Hands.
  • Currently under construction with the aim of reopening a ruined wine estate.
  • Owner of the winery Marco Cescon is only in his mid-twenties and when talking about the estate-restored vineyards, describes himself as the ‘temporary caretaker of a millennial beauty’.
  • Produces an ‘unconventional’ Prosecco Superiore DOCG by enhancing peculiar varieties of native Prosecco vines with a new bio-sustainable approach.
  • Still open during reconstruction and offers a more open style of visit with a tasting terrace.

Website: Mani Sagge


Marchiori

On a personal note: Visiting Marchiori always makes me feel like part of the family. From Sara’s warm welcome to the impressive Prosecco tasting in the beautiful tasting room. But the most stand-out feature is the short but fascinating foundational understanding of Prosecco. It’s one of the best starting points for any Prosecco tasting tour as you get to learn about the soil, the territory and the region’s grapes.

Marchiori is one of those outstanding wineries committed to preserving the ancient grape varieties – Glera Tonda, Glera Lunga, Perera, Verdiso and Bianchetta. And this shows up in every bottle. Marchiori is so dedicated to blending that they’ve produced a rare box of monovarietal wines that contains the ancient grapes in their base form to highlight the fundamental ingredients that go into Prosecco. From these ‘Prime Factors of the Superiore’ to biodiversity, I love every part of Marchiori’s work from the family to the grapes to the glass.

steep vineyard hills from Marchiori

Great for: learning about Prosecco, the process of making it and the different wines – all without feeling like you’re in class. Also hard to ignore those views.

Proseccos Available

  • Rivelazione – Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Rive di Farra di Soligo Extra Brut
  • Rocciamadre – Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Rive di Farra di Soligo Brut
  • Prologo – Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Extra Dry
  • Integrale Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Rive di Farra di Soligo Brut Nature
five ancient Marchiori prosecco grape varietal bottles

Highlights

  • Family-run vineyard on land that was first settled in the Bronze Age.
  • Beautiful San Lorenzo church within the vineyards.
  • Focus on the ancient (almost lost) grape varieties and yeasts to preserve the ancient traditions when mass production is rife elsewhere.
  • Vines are attended according to the phases of the moon. Harvest entirely by hand.

Merotto

nine glass tasting of prosecco at Merotto

On a personal note: Merotto provides the wow factor from the minute you approach their brand-new, modern tasting room. Split over two levels, the floor-to-ceiling windows let you gaze out over the sweeping vineyards as you work your way through your Prosecco tasting. With glittering chandeliers sparkling into your glass of sparkling wine, the tasting has a luxury feel. The lady who conducted the tasting was fun, friendly, professional, passionate and extremely knowledgeable.

Pop down into the shop afterwards to browse which wines you’re going to take home.

Great for: a touch of luxury at their new tasting room.

Proseccos Available

  • Prosecco Valdobiadenne DOCG
  • 7 different Proseccos and wines to try
  • Rose’ Sparkling from Pinot Noir
  • 2 still wines B. Giussin from Pinot Blanc and Rosso Dogato from Cabernet Sauvignon
Merotto collage tasting tables and prosecco gifts

Highlights:

  • Graziano Merotto started the company in 1972, however, his family’s routes in winemaking in the region date back to the early 1900s.
  • The super modern tasting room is certainly one of the most luxurious spaces you’ll find in the Prosecco hills.
  • Large floor-to-ceiling windows offer amazing views out to the Col San Martino hills and vineyards.
  • The winery has won numerous awards for both their Proseccos and their outstanding rosé.

Website: Merotto


Nani Rizzi

Nani Rizzi prosecco glass by the outdoor pool

On a personal note: My tasting at Nani Rizzi was certainly one of the most leisurely I have done during my visits to the Prosecco region. While the staff are extremely knowledgeable and will gladly give you a tour of the winery and talk you through their wines, they’re also happy to take a step back and leave you out on the gorgeous terrace to enjoy a selection of Prosecco and antipasti while taking in the breathtaking views across the local area for as long as you want.

Great for: relaxing on a luxurious terrace with beautiful views over the Prosecco hills.

Proseccos and Wines Available:

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G.
  • Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze D.O.C.G.
  • Prosecco D.O.C. Spumante
  • Sparkling Rose
  • 10 different Proseccos/wines to try
meats, cheese and prosecco at Nani Rizzi Winery

Highlights:

  • The Spagnol family has been cultivating and producing Prosecco here since 1887.
  • The winery hasn’t been afraid to embrace modern technology, and you can see its high-tech production and bottling methods for yourself on a winery tour.
  • Their chic and modern tasting room is surrounded by a large outdoor terrace with beautiful views over the vineyards.
  • The tasting terrace also has a small pool you can dip your feet into to cool yourself down on a hot day.

Nasi Rossi (at Maso di Villa)

Nasi Rossi red wine at maso di villa

On a personal note: During my latest trip to the region I had the pleasure of sampling Nasi Rossi while staying at the beautiful Maso di Villa guesthouse, a 19th-century farmhouse with an ivy-covered exterior, quirky antique-filled rooms and gorgeous views across the surrounding vineyards. Maso di Villa owns the Nasi Rossi winery, which is one of the only ones in the region that focuses solely on the production of red wine, making it something a little different to try in between the many Prosecco tastings.

Great for: trying a great red wine from the Prosecco region.

Proseccos and Wines Available:

  • Colli di Conegliano Rosso DOCG
Nasi Rossi wine barrels

Highlights:

  • The wine is produced using Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grape varieties.
  • The winery and cellar are located right next door to the Maso di Villa farmhouse so can be visited while staying at the guesthouse or by booking a separate tour and tasting.
  • Nasi Rossi translates to ‘Red Nose’ and gets its name from the rouge colour people’s noses turn after a few too many glasses of wine.
  • The Nasi Rossi bottle’s colourful label shows the group of friends who started producing the wine at Maso di Villa, all with signature red noses.
  • The winery values quality over quantity (and commercialization), producing just 2-3,000 bottles a year, and therefore Nasi Rossi can only be purchased directly from the winery or drunk in a few select restaurants in the Prosecco area.

Website: Nasi Rossi


Riva Granda

Riva Granda glasses of prosecco and smelling jars

On a personal note: I rarely need to be prompted to sit down to start a Prosecco tasting but the hilltop location of Riva Granda is magical enough to take your whole attention (even when corks are popping in the background). But Riva Granda doesn’t just offer breathtaking views, the wine tasting is sensory, too. It includes the unique twist of a scent test to explore the aromas of Conegliano Valdobbiadene and see how finely tuned your sense of smell is for the fruity and floral notes within the wines.

Since my last visit, Riva Granda has opened a wonderful new tasting room perched on the hilltop. This is one of the most spectacular wine-tasting views you will get in the region.

Ruggeri

Lush green vines and hills at ruggeri winery

On a personal note: If you’re in the mood for being impressed, visit Ruggeri. Situated in the heart of the Cartizze area, the family boasts vines that are around 100 years old and the vines are planted on land so fiercely vertiginous, that you can look over the edge from one step of vines to another. Grapes have been in the hands of this family for so long, that many of the buying and selling deals are done based on a handshake that happened centuries ago.

Great for: trying a few varieties of Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG, the best Prosecco DOCG you will find in Italy – considered the Grand Cru of Prosecco.

Proseccos and Wines Available 

  • Prosecco Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG
  • Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG
  • Prosecco DOC Treviso
  • Vino Spumante Metodo Italiano
  • 10 different Proseccos/wines to try

Highlights

  • Founded in 1950 by Giustino Bisol, however, the Bisol family have had roots in wine production in Valdobbiadene for several centuries.
  • One of just 25 wineries in Valdobbiadene to grow Cartizze grapes, used to produce the premium Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG.
  • Possible to try Italian sparkling wines made from the same Glera grapes but not classified as Prosecco.

Website: Ruggeri


San Gallo

San Gallo Wine Cellar with gate

On a personal note: Cellars are a rare find in the Prosecco region where the production takes place in steel rather than wood. That, together with the likelihood that the production here started with monks, San Gallo offers a different take on the glera grape, where the Prosecco is crafted using the classic method.

Great for: exploring underground wine cellars.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • Vino Spumante Metodo Classico
  • Grappa
  • 6 different Proseccos/wines/grappa to try
San Gallo -gran riserva spumate bottle

Highlights

  • Established in 1420.
  • Possible to visit ‘The Gallery’, San Gallos underground wine cellars where the Prosecco and wine ages at a temperature of 14°C.
  • Short walk to the 14th century Church of San Gallo with a great view over the Piave valley and river.

Sorella Bronca

White and red wine tasting at Sorella Bronca Winery

On a personal note: It’s easy to deliver a stream of words to promote the production of Prosecco but at Sorelle Bronca, there was almost a sparkle in the air. The family’s passion for what they are creating was contagious. I could have sat in that tasting room much longer than the few hours I spent there, listening to tales of wine and the wonder of Sorelle Bronca’s production. It’s no surprise Sorelle Bronca is the vineyard hiding behind the Harvey Nichols brand of Prosceeo Superior DOCG that’s available for sale in the UK.

Great for: trying a selection of high-quality DOCG-protected Proseccos and wines (both white and red) from a sustainable and eco-friendly winery.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • Prosecco Treviso DOC
  • Colli di Conegliano DOCG
  • 8 different Proseccos/wines to try
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil ‘Eremo di Rua’

Highlights

  • The name translates to ‘Sisters Bronca’ after sisters Antonella and Ersiliana Bronca who own and run the winery.
  • Supplies Prosecco Superiore DOCG  to UK’s premium department store Harvey Nichols.
  • One of the vineyards straddles the border between the Valdobbiadene Prosecco region and the Colli di Conegliano DOCG region, meaning it’s also possible to sample some beautiful still white and red (Bordeaux blend) wines.
  • Sorrella Bronca also owns the beautiful and modern Turvino B&B just a short distance from their winery which has its own pool boasting stunning views over the surrounding hills.

Val D’Oca

Prosecco steel tanks at Val Doca Winery

On a personal note: Val D’Oca offered one surprise after another. First, their steel tanks are vast and you could set a sci-fi flic in their bottling plant. Between the sky-scraping vats and robotic production, I wasn’t surprised that their Prosecco production is in the millions of bottles range. I was, however, very pleasantly surprised that the Val Do’Oca I tasted by far surpassed my expectations. While there isn’t a public tasting option, you can visit the shop and if you’re really interested in tasting Prosecco’s side by side, pick up one of their DOCs and compare it to their Cartizze. Now you can see the difference?

Great for: premium Prosecco from a large-scale producer, and observing an extremely high-tech and innovative way of bottling wine.

Proseccos and Wines Available

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG
  • Prosecco Treviso DOC
  • Pinot/Marzemino/Moscato/Colli Trevigiani IGT
  • Grappa
  • 51 different Proseccos/wines/grappas to try

Highlights

  • Val D’Oca is a cooperative of growers with the full name ‘La Cantina Produttori di Valdobbiadene’.
  • Annually harvests and processes 12,000 tonnes of grapes from its 714 hectares of land.
  • Deals with its large scale with a highly innovative and automated process of bottling and storing its Prosecco and wines.

Varaschin

On a personal note: My tasting at Varaschin was certainly one of the most unique I’ve done in the Prosecco region, with its ancient wine cellar, small winemaking museum and enthusiastic owner who treated us to a few songs on his piano to accompany our Prosecco.

Great for: an unusual but fun and informal tasting.

Proseccos and Wines Available:

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • 7 different Proseccos to try
  • 2 types of Prosecco DOC
  • 2 types of sparkling wine
  • Col Fondo
  • 2 red wines
  • Vin Santo or “Holy Wine”, which undergoes a late second fermentation.

Highlights:

  • The winery’s ancient wine cellar has been the meeting location of the ‘Confraternity of Prosecco di Valdobbiadene’ since it was founded in 1946.
  • Visit the cellar and see the impressive collection of local wines from across the years, many photos of the Confraternity and the large wine glasses used for ceremonies.
  • A small museum filled with ancient winemaking equipment.
  • The owner’s love of music can be seen in the winery’s new ‘legends’ line, in which each Prosecco is named after iconic musical legends including Elvis, Frank Sinatra and Amy Winehouse.

Villa Sandi

Pouring prosecco into glasses at Villa Sandi Winery

On a personal note: I didn’t get to do a formal tasting at Villa Sandi (though that didn’t stop me from grabbing a quick glass). This winery is high on my list for a proper visit next time I’m in the region. Villa Sandi offers a complete experience that includes a tour of the cellars, tasting at the cantina, dinner options at the Locanda and, when all that Prosecco and pasta are making you sleepy, a choice of rooms.

Great for: a full wine-lovers getaway, staying within the vineyards with plenty of Prosecco and tasty food pairings.

Proseccos and Wines Available:

  • Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG
  • Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG
  • Prosecco Treviso DOC
  • Venezia DOC/Piave DOC/IGT Marca Trevigiana
  • Grappa
  • 28 different Proseccos/wines/grappas to try
Path leading to ivy covered house of Locanda Sandi

Highlights:

  • The main headquarters are located within a beautiful Palladian-style building dating back to 1622. Guests can take guided tours of both the villa’s grand interior and the 1.5km of wine cellars below.
  • Within the Villa Sandi Valdobbiadene Estate sits Locanda Sandi, a B&B with 6 rooms overlooking the rolling vineyards.
  • Locanda Sandi also has a restaurant serving typical Treviso cuisine matched with wines from the Villa Sandi winery.

2 thoughts on “The Best Prosecco Vineyards to Visit”

  1. Thank you so much for putting together such an informative website! I am traveling to Italy this summer with my husband, children, and in-laws. It will be a busy trip, but we would love to stop by one Prosecco vineyard if possible. We will not have hours and hours, as we will be traveling from Marostica to Venice in one day. I was wondering if you might be able to give me your opinion as to which vineyard would be the best one for a brief visit in the afternoon during the week. I wish we had more time, because these all look wonderful (and I love Prosecco!) It would be great if the place had nice views of the vineyards, as none of us has ever visited any of these places before. I certainly appreciate your help!

    • Hi Tracey, there are so many to choose from. I’d suggest seeing which ones have availability as most don’t operate on a walk-in basis. Have a great trip!
