Valdobbiadene wine tasting at Guia Winery
Here is what you will live
Everybody knows..Prosecco! But do you know which is the most important area for this interesting italian sparkling wine? We're in the Veneto Region.and we're talking about Valdobbiadene: This area lies in hilly countryside situated 50 km from Venice and around 100 km from the Dolomites. Here vine-growing has extremely ancient origins, but the first written document linking Prosecco to this area dates back to 1772. Ever since the introduction of the D.O.C. in 1969, the historic production area has remained limited to just 15 communes. Two of these give it its name: Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, one being the zone’s cultural capital and the other the heart of its production.
Its position between the sea and the Prealps ensures a mild climate, with an average temperature during the year of 12.3°C and constant breezes, which allow the grapes to dry quickly after it has rained. Indeed, a special place and this is why we want to bring you in this area, letting you discover the loca winery of Guia!
Mario Buso started his “Guia” winery in the 1980s and today It has become one of the most important family businesses in the small hamlet of Guia in Valdobbiadene. Wine making was strongly rooted in Mario’s family, his father Bortolo and his mother Rina were both born farmers and makers of wine. Up until thirty years ago, farming was the main support for most families in the Valdobbiadene area, especially the husbandry of cattle, which consumed most of their time. In that rural world, the stable was the heart of people’s life. This has now been replaced by modern wineries, where shiny steel tanks and designer bottles are predominant. In contrast, Mario Buso’s winery has small selection of hand crafted wines. Each wine is made to exalt the unique properties, character and taste of the grapes from each vineyard. The quality of the products is shown by the success of sales throughout Italy, France and Switzerland. The customers of “Guia” are most importantly “friends” to them. Mario and his family have been building strong relationships with them. The wines are given a special genuine taste in synergy with the character of their land.
By choosing this tour you will discover a different point of view of Prosecco in this magic “rive” in Valdobbiadene, specials terroirs where everything is unique. After an introduction of the winery and the vineyard, you will also taste 4 wines.
Cheers..with a great glass of Prosecco Valdobbiadene!
