2012 Prosecco Spring
From 25 February 2012 to 24 June 2012
It is the 17th edition for this great event with its seventeen renowned food and tasting exhibitions, including the most important wine and food happenings in Veneto and one of the most renowned in Italy. It is worth remembering that the first wine route was established in the Valdobbiadene and Conegliano area in the distant 1966, initially called White Wine Route and nowadays known as the Route of Prosecco and Wines of the Conegliano Valdoabbiadene Hills. This area is situated in the upper Treviso March and includes the foothills of the Treviso province. Prosecco Spring offers a busy calendar of events, sport and cultural happenings and food tastings. The opportunity to taste wines and typical produces of the Treviso Marc, such as Prosecco docg, Cartizze and Valdobbiadene docg, Fregona Torchiato doc, Refrontolo Passito and Verdiso as well other produces - namely, radicchio, cheese, olive oil, honey and cold meats opens the doors to a century-long tradition of vines nourished with experience and wisdom that have generated the characteristics that are well-known throughout the world. Originally established as a wine-only event, the exhibition has, in a short amount of time, become a food and wine event to promote not only the wines of the Upper March but also the many typical dishes based on local produces. The setting of all the exhibitions is picturesque and unique, with a background of medieval hamlets, sumptuous 18th century Venetian palaces surrounding beautiful squares and hills rolling up to the foothills of the Alps. But Prosecco Spring is more than a food and wine only event. Thanks to a great flow of visitors, it now includes an ever growing number of collateral events, such as sport, arts and entertaining events with a local theme, which bring visitors in close contact with this area. Trailing only Vinitaly in Veneto, for both the number of Italian and foreign visitors, Prosecco Primavera is an annual encounter with wine, food, arts, culture and sports on the hills of the Treviso March and the opportunity to bring villages and their inhabitants together.
