Located in the town of Conegliano in the northern Italian region of Veneto, the viticultural institution consists of a viticultural school and research institute. Conegliano is also the starting point of the Prosecco Road, which leads to Valdobbiadene. The two institutions, which were established at different times, are structurally connected but are managed separately. The "Scuola Enologica Cerletti di Conegliano" was founded in 1876 by Giovanni Battista Cerletti as Italy's first viticultural school. The famous chemist and oenologist Antonio Carpenè (1838-1902) provided decisive impulses for this. Currently, around 1,000 students are taught in all disciplines. In addition to the classrooms, there are laboratories for chemistry, physics and science. A winery was built in the 1930s. The vineyards cover about 30 hectares with a vine nursery. The wines and spirits produced here are also marketed. Many leading Italian producers or wineries have their oenologists trained at the institute in Conegliano.
