The Prosecco region is basically made up of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene Hills that are known for cultivating grapes for the best sparkling wine for centuries. The region has been inducted into the World Heritage Site list at this year’s World Heritage Committee session in Baku. This makes it the 55th World Heritage Site in Italy. According to UNESCO, the Prosecco Hills’ landscape is that of hogback hills, ciglioni (small plots of vines on narrow grassy terraces), forests, villages, and farmland.
Culminating a lengthy nomination process that took over ten years, UNESCO finally declared the Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene a UNESCO World Heritage Site at the agency’s recent meeting in Baku (capital of Azerbaijan).
