Where tradition and culture of good wine intertwine, where the history of the First World War marked the territory and where the writer Goffredo Parise found rest, stands the village of Ponte di Piave, lying on the left bank of this historic Italian river. It is 20 km from Treviso, 30 km from the city of Venice and 20 km from Conegliano, home of the oldest Italian Wine School. Inhabited since the pre-Roman era by the ancient people of the Venetians, great breeders of horses, the territory of Ponte di Piave has experienced a particular development from the eleventh century. thanks to the work of the Benedictine monks who, from the imposing Abbey of Busco, spread and improved the cultivation of the vine. Of the past there are many testimonies of art and among these we note the beautiful church of San Bonifacio Martyr, in the village of Levada, dating back to the tenth century. A.D. Recent restorations have brought to light the interventions succeeded over time, making it a real historical / archaeological palimpsest of the second millennium, as well as discovering the magnificent fresco of the Madonna della Rondine. Also worthy of note are the oratory church of the Addolorata di Borgo Sottotreviso of the fifteenth century and the church of San Nicolò, of the seventeenth century. At the auditorium of the primary school of the capital it is possible to see the pirogue re-emerged from the waters of the Piave in 2009 and whose dating dates back to 830-840 AD.

The qualities of white and red wine produced by the local wineries are very varied and valuable. Among these, the "Raboso Piave", a precious red wine, is the fruit of an ancient indigenous vine, which still today finds on the banks of the river Piave the ideal habitat.
