Valdobbiadene (Italian pronunciation:  [valdobˈbjaːdene] ) is a town in the province of Treviso, Veneto, Italy. Valdobbiadene is a wine growing area. Just below the Alpine-Dolomite areas of Veneto, it provides a climate for a cool variety of grape (Glera). The Conegliano Valdobbiadene area is the home of the best Prosecco, an extra dry sparkling white wine. Prosecco brands that derive from this area include Altaneve, [3] Mionetto, Masottina, and others.

Prosecco is an Italian DOC or DOCG wine produced in a large area spanning nine provinces in the Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia regions, and named after the village of Prosecco. It is made from the Prosecco grape, but denomination rules allow up to 15% of the wine to be a blend of several other permitted varieties. Prosecco is almost always made in sparkling or semi-sparkling styles, but still white wine is also permitted. Prosecco Superiore is made under two smaller DOCG designations, where only the sparkling spumante style can be labelled superiore: Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG, which can only be made in the hills between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene north of Treviso, and the nearby smaller Asolo Prosecco DOCG produced near the town of Asolo.

Glera (grape) varietal

Glera, also known as Prosecco, is a white variety of grape of Slovenian origin, which was brought to the village of Prosecco from Slovenia's Karst region. The variety was formerly mostly referred to as Prosecco, but in the EU was renamed "Glera" in 2009 to make room for the protection of "Prosecco" as the name of a geographically-protected wine.

The Last Prosecco is a 2017 Italian giallo comedy film directed and co-written by Antonio Padovan, his first feature film, an adaptation of the 2010 Italian novel Finché c'è prosecco c'è speranza by co-screenwriter Fulvio Ervas. Set mainly in the Province of Treviso, the area of the Veneto region where Prosecco grapes are grown, the film follows an awkward police inspector assigned to investigate a bizarre suicide followed swiftly by two murders. The film spotlights the Prosecco-making world while incorporating "a strong environmental message". The film has "captivated audiences through the expression of the magic and charm" of a "unique region of Italy."
