Located in the Northeast of Italy is the Veneto Region, famous for the canals of Venice, the architecture of Palladio and the home of Romeo and Juliet. Comprised of seven provinces, five of them produce wine: Verona, Vicenza, Padua, Treviso and Venice. The Veneto Region is also responsible for producing 20% of all Italian D.O.C. wines. In fact, there are a total of 25 D.O.C. wines and 11 D.O.C.G. wines from within the Veneto region.

Piave D.O.C. is located between the provinces of Treviso and Veneto and is 30 kilometers wide and 40 kilometers long. Seventy years ago, the region consisted of 80% red wine production. However today, red wine is makes up only 3% of overall production. It is an area mostly known for Prosecco, with the finest selections emerging from an area between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. The Prosecco Superiore Conegliano Valdobbiadene became a D.O.C.G. in 2009.
