Today’s ride will enable us to cycle through the famous hills where Prosecco is produced. The area known as the “Colline del Prosecco di Conegliano e Valdobbiadene” extends eastwards until the town of Vittorio Veneto. The landscape is truly magnificent and is characterized by a particular geological formation called hogback where small valleys running from the east to the west are divided by short and steep hills.
