Plenty of correspondence regarding my Italian trip – sorry for the lack of specific location details.

Prosecco is a small wine region directly north of Venice. Rolle, where I was based, is a small village cresting a hill is, I believe, about an hour away from Marco polo Airport. The guest house, pictured, is part of the Bisol estate and is available, along with other rooms, available for rent. See their website for more details.

The photograph doesn’t really do the location justice; you can’t see the grand vista of the valley spread out below (although you can see more in some of the other pictures). But it is surrounded by vineyards which explains why, until quite recently, it was used for storing and drying of grapes. The Bisol estate, a reknown Prosecco producer, is on the Prosecco wine route and its proximity to Venice makes for a superb base to explore the countryside and the gastronomic delights of the region.
