Veneto Wine

The Veneto, located in the north-east of Italy, is a region that contributes a significant percentage, nearly a quarter, of the country’s total wine industry. Several of the major DOCs, including Soave, Bianco di Custoza, Valpolicella and Bardolino, plus Amarone, are produced here. The beloved sparkling wine Prosecco, while produced all over the country, has its origins and its best expression in the Veneto and is its own DOC.

The history of wine-making in the region can be traced back as far as a few centuries BC in the Bronze Age. The Romans eventually took over, as they were wont to do, and began dividing plots of land into more organized vineyard sites. They also established the cities that would become Venice (Venezia) and Verona, both major hubs for fashion, art, trade and wine. There are 6th century written documents by Cassiodoro, a magistrate of Visigoth King Theodorus, describing a sweet wine made from half dried grapes in Verona that is mostly likely an early version of Amarone or Read more »

  • Martellozzo Prosecco Veneto IGT NV

    Snoothrank:

    Light and refreshing to drink with a good amount of bubbles. One of my favorites to cook with and this dry wine is especially nice for pan sauces. I always have a bottle on hand and my guests always love it. I don't tell them that it's $6.99/bottle ;) Read More

  • La Fiera Soave 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Parmesan cheese and green apple aromas open for this inviting and interesting blend. Flavors are tart and refreshing, with lemon zest, melon and aged cheese rind. There's enough acidity to prop up the wine until the very end, where it falls off a bit. Not a wine for everyone but if you're a fan of a wine with cheese notes, this is truly delicious. Read More

    Questo vino è prodotto con un sapiente uvaggio di vitigni bordolesi e l'uva friularo, presente a Bagnoli di Sopra da più di cinque secoli. Un vino riserva del 2004 che mantiene intatte le sue caratteristiche nonostante i 10 anni di invecchiamento. Al naso vinoso, al gusto sapido, leggermente acidulo con un intenso sapore di marasca e un retrogus... Read More

  • Summer in Veneto, and a chilled bottle of prosecco sees you nicely through the day. The prosecco festival in Valdobbiadene is not to be missed, and many other neighbouring towns also get in on the act on weekends. The Bartolomiol is probably the best I've tasted.

  • More than ten years ago a holiday dinner at a lovely northern Italian restaurant led me to trying my first taste of Valpolicella. I fell in love with it and have spent the last decade or so atoning for the lost years drinking dreadful mass-produced white zinfandel and wedding dreck. I have developed a wide-ranging palate and particularly a tas...
