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 »

  • 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.
