Nowhere in the Portogruaro area has closer ties to the world of wine than Pramaggiore. Located on a completely flat piece of land just a short distance from Portogruaro itself, it is known as the “Home of DOC wine”. Internationally renowned wines are made in the surrounding area, which boasts a famous “Wine Route” with a number of food and wine trails that attract numerous tourists and wine experts every year. The Pramaggiore area has been known ever since ancient times, as it was crossed by important Roman roads along whose routes people still travel today: the Via Postumia, which linked Genoa to Aquileia, and the Via Annia, which went from Adria to Aquileia, passing through Altino on the way. The wine production scene in the DOC Lison-Pramaggiore area stands out not only because of the constant improvements in quality but also because of the dedication by vine growers and trade associations to organic methods, which were introduced in the vineyards in the early 1990s. The municipality of Pramaggiore has a population of almost 5,000. It spans 24 km² and has a population density of approximately 192 people per square kilometre. There is more to Pramaggiore than just the pleasures of the palate. It is also a treasure trove of history and architecture. The name of Pramaggiore can be found in documents from as long ago as 1225, which provide proof of a village that fell under the authority of the Patriarchate of Aquileia on the political front and the Diocese of Concordia in ecclesiastical terms. However, stone and ceramic artefacts that have recently been found reveal that humans were already present in the area between 1600 and 1300 BC.
