VinoVip is set in one of the most prestigious mountain resorts: Cortina d’Ampezzo. The municipality has always given patronage to the Civilization of Drinking summit. The green basin in which it lies, in the Cadore Valley, is surrounded by magnificent Dolomite scenery: the Tofane, Cinque Torri, Cristallo and other majestic peaks, beloved by the tourists who enliven the town every year. In 1874 a woman, the first in the Dolomites, climbed the Cristallo. In 1902 the first ski race was organized, and in 1956 Cortina hosted the Winter Olympics, an exceptional event that will be repeated in 2026. Since 2009, the World Heritage Comittee has officially listed the Dolomites as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
