Il sole riluce sui verdi pendii di Valdobbiadene lavorati di vigneti come filigrane. I colli e la pianura attorno sono coltivati a vigneto tra un fiore maestoso di ville sonore di fontane, popolate di statue, con ariose logge per gli ozi estivi del villeggiare e dentro affrescate scene con divinità rappresentate da pastori e contadine del luogo..."
Giovanni Comisso (Da "La mia terra", Dicembre 1963)
