Wines from Veneto
The fame and prestige of Veneto wine in Italy and throughout the world is a phenomenon that has deep roots in time and is the result of an important wine-growing culture that is well established throughout the region. Every year this region is confirmed as one of the most productive in the peninsula, with excellent wines scattered throughout its territory, from the shores of Lake Garda to the Dolomite mountains, passing through hilly areas, lush valleys and ancient volcanic territories. Among the most internationally renowned specialities are Amarone della Valpolicella, Prosecco di Valdobbiadene, Soave and Bardolino, which have become true paradigms of Italian wine and food culture, but many other types are produced from the vast heritage of indigenous grapes scattered in different areas. Custoza, Recioto, Carmenere, Garganega, Durello and Torcolato di Breganze are just some of the names, in no particular order, of local grapes or particular typicalities that populate the region, contributing to its worldwide fame.
