Covering an area of about 200 square kilometres, the Berici Hills extend south of Vicenza, dominating the Po-Venetian plain, together with the nearby Euganean Hills. Plains and mountains, rivers and hills, lakes and streams, the Berici Hills boast a landscape and natural heritage that tells the story of people, wine, art and beauty,

Thanks mainly to the life and works of Andrea Palladio, architectural theorist and scenographer of the Italian Renaissance. Vines have been grown on these calcareous hills since ancient times, finding a perfect balance between the composition of the soil (rock, red clay and soil of volcanic origin), the altitude that keeps fog and late frosts away and low annual rainfall.

The Berici Hills are synonymous with international red grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the first to receive the DOC designation in Italy.
