Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg flies high with Volotea

The promotion of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg flies high and reaches new altitudes. While Volotea, the airline that connects small and medium-sized European cities, inaugurated its first flight between Verona and Bordeaux on 13 April, the Protection Consortium as part of the partnership with the Cité du Vin in Bordeaux, specifically with the “Via Sensoria” project, also sponsored by the Spanish low-cost company, promoted the oenological excellence of the area, bringing the renowned Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg directly to a tasting “in the clouds”.

During this first aerial tasting, organized in collaboration with the company, passengers had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the refinement of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg, appreciating the Extra Dry type.

This unique experience allowed them to capture the elegance of the famous Italian sparkling wine as they flew to the renowned Bordeaux wine region.

“This initiative once again demonstrates the increasingly widespread interest and appreciation,” commented the director of the Protection Consortium, Diego Tomasi. “We are thrilled that Volotea has chosen us to offer our wine to its passengers, gifting them with a unique flight experience that celebrates the crown jewel of Italian wine heritage.”
