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.

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 »

I have developed a wide-ranging palate and particularly a tas...
