Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine made from the Glera grape and comes in multiple varieties including Dry, Extra Dry and Brut. Prosecco’s crisp flavor is complemented by its carbonation content, which can be found as Frizzante (semi-sparkling), Spumante (sparkling) or Tranquillo (still). Nestled in the hills of northern Italy, the quiet town of Valdobbiadene offers stunning views of vineyards and prides itself on being the heart of the Prosecco wine making world. Though Prosecco is produced in the large region of low flat vineyards spanning the area from Venice to Trieste, strict production laws allow only two small areas in the world to label their wine Prosecco Superiore DOCG, which is the highest quality. The hills of Valdobbiadene along Prosecco Road is one of those areas. In addition to producing some of the best wine in the world, Prosecco Road offers magnificent views of rolling hills.Some of our favorite wineries to visit for Prosecco tasting are:

And finally, one left turn and one vine covered hill from Ca’ Salina is our favorite stop on Prosecco Road…L’Osteria Senz’Oste (All’Oste che non c’e’ on Google Maps) which translates to “The bar with no bartender”. L’Osteria Senz’Oste offers a few parking spots among the Glera vines and a quiet pathway with an amazing view. L’Osteria Senz’Oste is unique for the fact that it sells Prosecco, salami and cheese on an honor system. Inside what appears to be an old farmhouse, you’ll find each item with a price on it ranging from €5 – €10. All you have to do is take a bottle, drop your money into the “casa” or cash box, and enjoy your wine with a view.
