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 »

  • Altaneve Rosé NV

    Snoothrank:

    Altaneve Rosé has a wonderful nose of strawberries and earthiness, yet the palate is surprisingly dry and lovely with a round flavor profile. Several notable highlights of the wine are the delicate perlage and clean, smooth finish. Read More

  • Altaneve NV

    Snoothrank:

    As you bring a flute of Altaneve to your lips, you sense the delicate undertones of white peach, pear and honeysuckle. From your first sip, the crispness, velvety texture and fine perlage distinguish Altaneve from other sparkling wines. Read More
