A brief history
Duca di Dolle is located in Rolle, a tiny hamlet in the heart of the Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. hills of Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, which from 2019 will be recognised as a World Heritage Site. The estate has ancient origins: an uncontaminated oasis of natural beauty and peace in which to enjoy a unique immersive experience, combining history and tradition with taste and innovation.
The Duca di Dolle vineyards are located on the steepest but most fascinating slopes of the DOCG, the natural habitat of the Glera, Verdiso and Perera vines. All the vineyards consist of real “Rive“, namely vines located on steep slopes with reduced yields per hectare. They give rise to Prosecco Superiore DOCG, the top of the quality pyramid of the Prosecco world. The production area is located in the Veneto region, 50 km from Venice, in the hilly part of the province of Treviso, between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, at an equal distance from the Dolomites and the Adriatic Sea, a combination that positively influences the climate. A difficult area to cultivate but fascinating, a unique landscape marked by steep vineyards and natural vegetation, rich in historical and artistic evidence, from 2019 a Unesco World Heritage Site.
The DOCG encompasses fifteen municipalities with a total of around 6,000 hectares of vineyards, 100 of which are in the Cartizze micro-production zone in the municipality of Valdobbiadene. Through its extraordinary history, Conegliano Valdobbiadene has built, over time, the success of Prosecco, appreciated and loved all over the world.
