Prosecco is one of the Veneto’s greatest exports The name Prosecco was first used by British traveller Fynes Moryson when describing some of Italy’s most famous wines. In addition, we know that this wine has long been produced in the Veneto region, especially in Treviso, Venice, Vicenza, Padua and Belluno—it was in these places, in fact, that the winemaking technique (the process of transformation of the Prosecco wine grape) was employed for the first time.
