What do you do on a sunny day when the frigid temperatures of winter finally start to thaw, and your husband doesn't have to work?
Go to the Prosecco vineyards of course!
Did you know the northern part of Italy is known for having the best Prosecco in the WORLD?
It's true. There really is no better place to buy Prosecco.
A mere hour away from where we live is where you can find the Strada del Prosecco, a street that is home to numerous Prosecco vineyards. It's in a gorgeous town called Refrontolo, near Conegliano.
If you didn't know any better, you might think you've found your way to Tuscany with the amount of vineyards that surround this area.
Our first stop was the Toffoli vineyard, which is where some of my favorite Prosecco comes from.
Toffoli makes a fantastic Prosecco Superiore, an extra dry millesimato. It was given a DOCG rating, which means it's basically the best of the best. What's even more fantastic is that when you buy it from the vineyard it's a mere 6 euro a bottle! They also make some of the best Rosé I've ever had.
We tasted some delicious bottles of bubbly, and stocked up on our favorites. After loading up the car we drove around the area and took in the sites.
Also in Refrontolo is the Molinetto della Croda, an old mill which is perfect for stopping to grab a few pics.
We enjoyed lunch at Ristorante Da Brun, where we dined upon a fixed menu of pasta, chicken, and veggies. The highlight of Da Brun is it's location, secluded at the top of a hill with a fantastic view.
The Prosecco region made for a perfect day date, with beautiful sites and great wine to taste.
After all, there's a reason why Prosecco is in the title of this blog.
I have also recently learned that Toffoli now distributes to the USA, so if you aren't planning a trip to Italy anytime soon you can still enjoy their wines.
*I was in no way asked to endorse or feature the Toffoli vineyard on this blog. I just really love their Prosecco :)
