All about the Taste of Prosecco Cycling.

Cycling is the best way to get to know the Prosecco region; framed in the north by the Alps and in the south by the river Piave plain, where green hills are covered by lush overgrown vineyards. What is waiting for you is a land full of charm, history and art, enriched by unexpected surprises bearing witness to its ancient past: fairytale castles, aristocratic villas but also typical cellars where local people are keeping alive the pleasure of hospitality… you will absolutely need to taste their delicious local products! In this area winemaking tradition has ancient roots; the first written evidence of Prosecco dates back to 1772 and nowadays, even though sparkling wines are widespread throughout the whole country, only the product born from these particular graves, with its floral and fruity scent, can bring in the world the name of ‘Prosecco’.
