DOCG Prosecco Superiore with Alan Tardi

Located in the steep hills of Italy’s Veneto lies Conegliano Valdobbiadene, the oldest region for producing DOCG Prosecco Superiore. It is only one of two areas of prosecco winemaking granted the prestigious DOCG status. Alan Tardi, U.S. Ambassador for Conegliano Valdobbiadene, discusses the three regions of production: Conegliano, Valdobbiadene and Cartizze, where the indigenous Glera grapes are mainly hand harvested, the charmat “Italian” method of vinification and different Prosecco styles.
