The Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin (DOCG) is a quality label attributed to wines of high quality, produced in a specific geographical area and which comply with a strict specification. Particular analyzes carried out during the vinification and bottling phases guarantee the excellence of the final result.

The production area of Conegliano-Valdobbiadene DOCG is located in the northeastern region of Veneto at a distance of about 50 km from Venice and extends between the countries of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene on high-hill soils that make cultivation difficult but particularly evocative. panorama of the vineyards arranged on steep green slopes immersed in the forest (20,000 hectares).
