Steep sides embroidered by the rows. Small villages on which pointed bell towers stand out. Ups and downs dotted with ancient rural houses built in stone. If you listen, you can still hear the vats boiling, the pot of polenta that grunts on the fire, the chicks that peep behind mother clucking, the heat of the sun that feeds the grapes. On the hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, nature and man have interacted for centuries, in perpetual exchange. The watchword for maintaining balance is respect.
