Rolle

Description

A charming and down of hills covered by sunny vineyards, dotted here and there with lush fruit trees and old houses perfectly restored.

Here Rolle, the pleasant rural village in the hills south of Cison: undisputed land of the famous Prosecco DOCG and nothing, absolutely nothing to envy to even the beautiful hills of the Tuscan, defined by the most distinguished poets living Italian, Andrea Zanotto, "a postcard sent by the gods."

Rightly, then, in 2004, the Italian Environment Fund has recompressed Rolle, whole, as a reference point FAI. From the village square you can enjoy a breathtaking view: the manicured rows of vines aimed at noon that stretch as far as the eye along the gentle slopes.

The tiny church, built nearby and dedicated to St. James, contains some interesting work of local artist Egidio dall'Oglio, but Rolle is for something else: the work unquestionably the most valuable is in fact that of nature, expertly modeled in centuries from respectful workings of man.
An unforgivable mistake, therefore, to be missing a lovely walk, on foot or horseback, friends and family in tow, the country roads surrounding the village, with an inevitable stop, "final" (in the sense that you would not want more get up from the table), in one of the many farms and restaurants of the place.

Equally unmissable, a fascinating visit to one of the renowned wineries in the area, to discover the methods of wine-making and conservation of Prosecco. All with one certainty: after meeting with the precious nectar, no one will go home empty handed. Origin: it is thought that the name derives from Arrollis rubus, which can refer to the presence of brambles, but also to a landslide, most likely a third meaning, such ollas, which would bring the origin of the name to the note production terracotta vases that until the last century was one of the main activities of the country.

In the thirteenth century, the Benedictine monks settled in Rolle, owned most of the arable land that granted in rent to the local people. Part of the old monastery is still visible near the center of the country.
