Valdobbiadene (Italian pronunciation: [valdobˈbjaːdene]) is a town in the province of Treviso, Veneto, Italy. Valdobbiadene is a picturesque wine growing area. Just below the Alpine areas of Veneto, it provides a climate for cool varieties of grape. This area is the home of Prosecco Conegliano Valdobbiadene, a dry sparkling white wine. Prosecco brands that derive from this area include Altaneve.[2]
