An area of hilly terrain in northeast Italy known for its Prosecco production has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The Prosecco hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene were recognised by the UN’s cultural agency on Sunday, marking Italy’s 55th World Heritage site.

In a statement, UNESCO highlighted the centuries of cultivation the land had undertaken in order to reach its “particular chequerboard landscape” of parallel-running vines.
