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 »

    Floral sweet spice and fresh red fruit on the nose with earthy notes of clay and warm stone. Bold and assertive palate of red fruit - red currant, cranberry and cherry with zesty acidity brightening the palate and adding a refreshing zippiness that darts through to the finish where it becomes a bolt of heat that mellows into baking spice and mor...

    Tarry and earthy aromas with underlying red fruit notes of cranberry and cherry amidst heady spice. Juicy and plump on entry with generous black currant and blackberry fruit, tart cranberry and plum skin notes on the mid palate and a finish of dark chocolate, blueberry and a puff of smoke. Good structure and fruit. 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.

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...
