At the heart of the province of Venice there is an area intimately tied to local wine and food products: the “D.O.C. lison pramaggiore” area (D.O.C. stands for “Denominazione di Origine Controllata”, that is: “Controlled designation of origin” (a quality assurance label for wine). Just a short distance from the city of Portogruaro, and just a few miles from the beaches of Venice and Bibione, Caorle and Jesolo, one meets a marvelous wine-producing land, much appreciated by the Venetian “Dogi” (the “Doge” was the leader of the Venetian Republic). This land has given life to the “Strada dei Vini” (the Wine Road) initiative, to invite you to get to know and visit this area. In this web site we mention the many activities offered by the Lison Pramaggiore DOC Wine Road in terms of the culture of wine and food tasting, the events offered by our members, as well as other interesting opportunities for the promotion of the Eastern Veneto region and its typical products. The pride of the area between the Tagliamento and Livenza rivers is its grape and wine production: not only is it among the most advanced in Italy, but it is also constantly growing in quality due to the attention the wineries have paid to organic agriculture, introduced at the beginning of the 90’s, and to the special care taken in wine-making and aging techniques.
Wine tasting in the local wineries, thematic dinners in restaurants and hotels, the DOC Lison Pramaggiore Wine Road plays an integral part in the main events of the area for weekends of wine and food tasting and pure relaxation.
