Our Territory

Cantine Maschio looks out over the splendid Prosecco hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene which rise up in the rich area of Veneto that descends from the Dolomites to the sunny beaches north of Venice.
Diverse and fascinating lands find their place in these territories, which have given nourishment to different grape varieties for centuries.
Are you ready to discover their secrets?


The Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene

Cantine Maschio welcomes you to the region of Prosecco, the most iconic and beloved among the Veneto wines.
Its intriguing bouquets and alluring aromas have seduced every wine lover, thanks to an unparalleled evolution that has made Prosecco synonymous with a contemporary, lively and informal lifestyle. A bit like its bubbles.
Between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, Prosecco is celebrated every day like a religion. It dictates the rhythms of daily life, from the cellars to the liveliest meeting places.
Prosecco receives a specific appellation depending on the production area. The hilly territory is the production area of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene DOCG. This area is in turn divided into micro-zones, the famous ‘banks’, which vary from hill to hill. Only move a little and you’ll find different grapes, capable of giving life to wines with different body, aroma or acidity: a transformation due to minimal changes in the exposure of the vineyards to the sun, in the sloping of the hillside, in the age of the vineyards, in the soil type or in the microclimate.
Going down into the valley, a wide plain opens up, crossed by the waters of the Piave River; here’s where the production area of Prosecco DOC Treviso is to be found. A region with a historic winemaking vocation, where the wines of Cantine Maschio find their best expression.

The geographical appellations

The use of appellations (DOCG, DOC and IGT) allows the classification of wines and guarantees their origin and quality.


DOCG wines have similar production regulations to DOCs, but more stringent. Qualitative excellence is certified, with particular attention to each production process. The DOCG also accepts an extremely lower and controlled yield per hectare compared to the other appellations. Cantine Maschio DOCG wines come therefore from a well-defined and unique geographical area: the Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, a UNESCO heritage site.


Prosecco DOC wines originate in a fascinating territory that includes 9 provinces between Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. In 2009, the Prosecco DOC was established to protect the Prosecco appellation of origin. The grape variety that had been formerly known as Prosecco was then officially designated as Glera. Glera is a grape variety with ancient origins. It was in fact already known and cultivated in Roman times. The production of Prosecco must include at least 85% of Glera grapes.


The IGT designation protects the name of wines originating in areas – usually larger than DOC and DOCG territories - where the product’s particular quality, reputation and characteristics are essentially attributable to their geographical origin. Among Cantine Maschio IGT wines are Chardonnay and Sauvignon.
