The steepest hills with the best soils and exposition, Valdobbiadene (also called Conegliano Valdobbiadene) is the historic area covering 15 municipalities between the two villages of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. Collectively it is recognized as the Prosecco Superiore DOCG. This very small area—only 7,000 hectares—of extreme terrain is in the heart of the larger Prosecco zone.
Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
