Prosecco applys for UNESCO status
It's been 10 years in the making to get Prosecco to UNESCO status. The campaign started in 2008 and in 2010 it was included in the Italian Tentative list. Italy’s National Commission for UNESCO publicly backed the application for the area of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene – the home of Prosecco DOCG wines – to join the world heritage list. They now await to hear whether it is to be granted.
