The hills surrounding CONEGLIANO are patched with vineyards, and the production of wine – prosecco in particular – is central to the economy of the town. Italy’s first wine-growers’ college was set up in Conegliano in 1876, and a couple of well-established wine routes meet here: the Strada dei Vini del Piave, which runs for 68km southeast to Oderzo and concentrates on the region’s red wines; and the more rewarding Strada del Prosecco, a 42km journey west to Valdobbiadene. The main square is given over to a medieval pageant in mid-June, the Dama Castellana, and the streets of Conegliano host a major wine festival on the last weekend in September.
