The best wines from Veneto

The Veneto area is is known as one of Italy's most stunning locations, including the Grand Canal, the Venetian islands, and of course, the magnificent city of Venice. However, Veneto also stands out in the world of wine, due to its substantial production of Pinot Grigio, the remarkable surge in demand for Prosecco and typical region wines like Amarone. And for its high quality wines from producers like Quintarelli en Dal Forno. These factors underscore the regions and historical significance within the wine industry.

With the Alps on the north, the west bordered by Lake Garda, and the southeast enclosed by the Adriatic Sea, this region's microclimates offer a large diversity of grape varieties and winemaking styles, adding the best to the portfolio of Italian wines.

Veneto, Verona, Vicenza, Valpolicella, mark Veneto's prominent wine presence in the 21st century. The province of Verona serves as the wine centre of the Veneto. However, not only Verona but also Treviso is important for wine production, collectively contributing three-quarters of the total output. Some of the most known venetian wines are for example Amarone, Soave, Bardolino, and prosecco.

Geographically, Veento produces whites in the northwest, exclusive wines in central areas, and Prosecco in the northeast. It offers a diverse wine portfolio, with over 25% holding DOC/DOCG titles.
