The prosecco Experience 2018
The Prosecco Hills is the magnificent paradise where prosecco comes from. The region, just north of Venice, Italy, remains undiscovered by tourists.
The Prosecco Experience will take place there May 21 - 27, 2018, when the weather is perfect and the endless rolling hills of vineyards are green.
This Experience will be all about exquisite wine, delicious food, incredible traditions, genuine hospitality, astonishing scenery, authentic ancient farmhouses and storied history are just a few reasons why the Prosecco wine country is one of the most wonderful places on Earth.
We’ll stay in a beautifully restored ancient farmhouse set atop glorious rolling hills covered with vineyards as far as the eye can see. We’ll visit astoundingly beautiful wineries and meet with visionary winemakers to learn about Prosecco wine making and, of course, learn how to taste and appreciate these amazing Italian wines.
We’ll learn to make Italian cheese. We’ll visit local farms and explore the many customs and traditions practiced in the region. We’ll hang out with Italy’s top artisanal baker; he’ll show us some of the fields where his heirloom ancient grain varieties are grown. We’ll take hands-on cooking classes from a brilliant chef who will share his secrets for making the perfect pasta and gnocchi. We’ll visit a secret cellar unearthed not long ago.
And many surprises we can't tell you about!
