In 2015 we enjoyed the hospitality of the hardworking Massimo and his delightful parents [la famiglia Zanin] at La Rondine ['the swallows'].
Everything was really good - an enjoyable time practicing my Italian, great hospitality and good food ... and prosecco, naturally. The views were quite spectacular, very quiet and relaxing.
Their recommendation to visit Castelbrando, nearby, was well made.
A little tip - the map/directions to getting here can be a bit misleading ... continue on the road above the main road, even past what looks like the end of the trail ... it's not ... persevere, the road is more than adequate..

In 2015, after getting a little lost in Valdobbiadene [it's NOT that easy to get lost there] we ended up at this small producer [only 50,000 bottles p.a.] and had a wonderful time talking and sampling prosecco. From the outside it looks like you are entering a a family home ... and it is!!
We were hosted by Elisa, one of the five daughters helping run the estate, and also met the proud father.
Nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed hearing the story of the vineyards and of the family and we sampled 'quite a few' of their wonderful products [see photo on the left]. When we departed we were stocked with ample 'supplies for later'.
The whole event was one of those 'moments' that happen when you're travelling - we couldn't have planned it better and we had a great time.
