VINO IN VILLA INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF CONEGLIANO VALDOBBIADENE PROSECCO SUPERIORE
Vino in Villa is the most important annual event devoted to the wine of Conegliano Valdobbiadene. It takes place on the third weekend of May in the heart of the production zone, and stems from the Producers’ Consortium’s desire to tell journalists, members of the wine trade and consumers about our wine and the area it comes from. Now in its 18th edition, in 2015 Vino in Villa is becoming a real festival of culture, aimed at revealing the many different worlds that have been generated during the course of the history of wine, a beverage that was already highly prized in ancient civilisations: artistic, philosophical and poetic worlds, which will allow us to comprehend how the symbolic power contained within what was once referred to as the nectar of the gods is almost unlimited.
From 14th to 16th May everyone will have the opportunity to listen to some of today’s most important representatives of the spheres of art and culture, in an extraordinary natural setting: that of the hills and ancient villages around Conegliano, Valdobbiadene and Pieve di Soligo. The meetings of this cultural programme will be conducted in Italian.
The event will culminate, as usual on Sunday 17th May, in the splendid Castle of San Salvatore at Susegana, a manor house dating back to the 12th century, where the producers of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore will offer their wines for tasting.
