The Homeland Of Prosecco
Conegliano Valdobbiadene

The homeland of Prosecco is a specific hilly area of the Veneto Region: Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Since 2019 it has been a Unesco World Heritage Site thanks to its inestimable value as a "cultural landscape". This territory has always been the setting for our company, with its green vineyards that spread visibly over the hills and the generous grapes from which the Prosecco we all know is born.

The Estate

Within reach of the romance and intrigue of historic Venice, the Veneto region of Northeast Italy oozes charm and boasts the ideal Prosecco “Terroir”. For centuries it has been and continues to be the locale for growing the Prosecco wine. Not only well-respected by wine-makers as the historic home of Prosecco wine, the Prosecco region of Veneto is also legally designated as such.

The area includes 15 villages, with the two capitals of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano marking the boundary. At the very heart of this region stands Col San Martino, the home of Follador. Col San Martino is famed for its superb wine-growing conditions, including an ideal micro-climate, the support of one of Italy’s foremost wine-producing regions, and the perfect soil composition of rock and clay. Follador Vineyards, sitting at the very centre of it all, enjoy the best of all worlds.

255 years of history

Further prestigious endorsement of the excellence of this terroir came on 7th July 2019, when the UNESCO Heritage Commission declared Conegliano Valdobbiadene a World Heritage Site and tasked it with continuing the conservation, protection and promotion of the site’s original characteristics.
