Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine made from the Glera grape and comes in multiple varieties including Dry, Extra Dry and Brut.
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.
These are some of the best wineries along Italy’s La Strada dell Prosecco. The majority of the wineries offer free tastings and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the wine making process.
Ca’Salina is one of the most popular wineries to visit along Prosecco Road due to its quite obvious location and bright yellow building. The owner speaks perfect english, is very friendly and gives tons of informative information about the Prosecco.
They are open daily from 9:00 to 19:30. The address of Ca’Salina is Via Santo Stefano 2, Valdobbiadene 31049, but I doubt you’ll even need it!

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.
