Lison-Pramaggiore DOC

Description to Lison-Pramaggiore DOC

DOC area for red wines and white wines in the border area of the two Italian regions Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto. The area was created in 1968 by merging the formerly independent DOC areas Cabernet di Pramaggiore, Merlot di Pramaggiore and Tocai di Lison. In terms of area, the DOCG area of Lison is identical. It extends from the Adriatic coast in the south between the rivers Tagliamento and Livenza to the Friuli Venezia Giulia region in the north. Viticulture here dates back to Roman times and was rationalised by the Benedictine order in the 10th century. The temperate climate is characterised by cool, dry north winds (bora) and hot, humid south-east winds (scirocco)

In Veneto, the zone includes the municipalities of Annone Veneto, Cinto Caomaggiore, Gruaro, Fossalta di Portogruaro, Pramaggiore and Teglio Veneto, parts of Caorle, Concordia Sagittaria, Portogruaro, San Michele al Tagliamento and Santo Stino di Livenza in the province of Venezia, and Meduna di Livenza and parts of Motta di Livenza in the province of Treviso. In Friuli Venezia Giulia, these are the municipalities of Chions, Cordovado and Pravisdomini, and parts of Azzano Decimo, Morsano al Tagliamento and Sesto al Reghena in the province of Pordenone. For Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio, only the area of Pordenone applies.
