Info. Farra di Soligo in the Prosecco hills of Veneto, Italy
It’s autumn here in the Prosecco hills of north-east Italy. We’re just outside Farra di Soligo, a village about 60 kilometres north of Venice. This area is known for growing the Glera grape used to make the white wine called Prosecco. Once a humble sparkling wine, Prosecco now exceeds Champagne in global popularity. More than 600 million bottles of Prosecco were produced in Italy in 2018, about twice the amount of Champagne sold around the world.
