“Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration.”
The 1972 United Nations World Heritage Convention created an international program for identifying the world’s most important and irreplaceable natural wonders and cultural treasures, with the intent of bringing those sites to global attention and providing assistance in ensuring those resources would survive for future generations. In July 2019, Le Colline del Prosecco di Conegliano e Valdobbiadene—the hills that define the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG—were added to that list, recognizing the verdant and vertiginous slopes that rise from the Veneto plain and contribute to the exceptional quality of the wine made from the area’s vineyards. We salute the denomination with some pictures of the area.
