Countryside surrounding Ca'Salina - Valdobbiadene

Countryside surrounding Ca'Salina

Ca'Salina "Gaudium Hospitis"

After eating lunch at Casa Caldart and wine tasting at Casa Mionetto, we headed off to Ca' Salina to sample some additional sparkling wines. The owner (Gregorio Bortolin) was very friendly as well as knowledgeable and welcomed us to his establishment. Where we were the only customers at Casa Mionetto, it was literally a "united nations" meeting at Ca'Salina. When we arrived, there was a group of folks from the UK, us and then a couple arrived after driving in from Austria. A truly memorable experience and of course after sampling a number of sparkling wines, we purchased a Moscato Vino Spumante Aromatico di Qualità Dolce, an Incrocio Manzoni Vino Spumante di Qualità Extra Dry & a "Paradiso" Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Dry.

Casa Mionetto

Before we arrived in Italy, our friends had asked us what we wanted to do. As we really didn't know the Veneto area that well, we told them to surprise us. Boy did they ever!!! The trip out to Casa Mionetto was just awesome...getting away from the city of Vicenza and riding through the countryside is soothing to say the least. After about 1 1/2 hours, we reached the town of Valdobbiadene and the winery of Casa Mionetto. We met the owner, toured the museum and tasted various prosecco products.

In the end, we purchased three bottles: Fürst von Metternich (a German Riesling wine), Cartizze DOCG (dry sparkling wine with apple, pear and rose flavors) & Moscato Dolce (sweet sparkling wine with an elegant, sweet and delicate taste) all for €22 (approximately $29 USD).
