“La Strada Del Prosecco”

Travel from Venice to one of the region’s best-kept secrets, “La Strada del Prosecco” or Prosecco Road. Three dozen vineyards that churn out delicious, affordable versions of the Veneto region’s best-known wine, and the basis for Italy’s national cocktail, the Aperol Spritz. Most of the cantina (vineyards) along the Prosecco Road remain family-owned and run. Many of the tasting rooms are simple operations where visitors rap on a wooden door to call the winemaker from his work for a quick pouring. A truly authentic and enjoyable way to spend the day.

Friuli Venezia Giulia

A visit to the Friuli Venezia Giulia (FVG) countryside is a chance to experience a mostly undiscovered corner of Northern Italy. This large agricultural haven spreads across the plains reaching the foot of the Dolomite Mountains. The soil delivers a unique table of local products such as Montasio cheese which pairs beautifully with the wine from the Prosecco vintages grown in this region. Join me in my home kitchen to prepare and enjoy dishes made with local ingredients. The FVG region is less than an hour by train from Venice. I offer transfer from the train to my home which is about a ten-minute drive.

Montasio DOP

MONTASIO DOP cheese is made daily, with fresh milk, in little cheese farms in the North East of Italy.

Montasio has 4 different denominations according to how long it has been aged for.

Montasio Fresco, aged at least for 60 days/2 months.
Montasio Mezzano, aged at least 120 days, so it can’t be sold with the name MEZZANO before 4 months from the cheese making.
Montasio Stagionato is the official name for a Montasio aged at least 10 months. It’s also sold as Montasio Vecchio in the cheese farms.
Montasio Stravecchio, aged for at least 18 months.
