Il Territorio
The territory in which the consortium, Consorzio Vini Venezia, is operational includes a vast area hosting the vineyards regulated by the designation of origin rules applying to local areas of production (denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita Lison e Malanotte del Piave and Denominazione di Origine Controllata Venezia, Lison-Pramaggiore e Piave).
The area in question lies within the boundaries of three provinces (Treviso, Venezia and, in small part, Pordenone).
For hundreds of years, this flat land has been given over to vine-growing. The area stretches from the foot of the Dolomite mountains toward the mouth of the Piave river, while spreading out, eastward toward the province of Venezia and the natural boundary formed by the river Tagliamento, and also into Venice’s hinterland and lagoon, and the Adriatic itself.
