Veneto is a region with a solid winegrowing tradition, which maintains the scepter of Italian production with just under 8.174.000 hl of wine in 2009, with a minimum prevalence of white, and 30% of wines are DOCG and DOC.
The most widespread vine is the merlot, followed by the indigenous Garganega and Prosecco among the white grapes, while Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara are more cultivated among those with red berries, in particular in the Verona area and in the Vicenza area. Just in the province of Verona are produced some regional DOCG, Soave Superiore, Bardolino Superiore, Amarone della Valpollicella, Recioto della Valpollicella and Recioto di Soave, delicious raisin wine based on garganega. Remaining in the field of sweet wines we must remember the Torcolato, based on vespaiola, produced in the Breganze area.
In the Valpollicella area, in addition to interesting red wines, we produce the DOCG Amarone della Valpollicella, based on corvina, rondinella and other local grapes partially dried, robust and full of fragrant nuances that make it one of the best reds in Italy.
On the Berici Hills there is the red friulano, a particular vine, widespread especially around Barbarano, where it gives a fruity and fresh red wine.
On the Euganean Hills you can appreciate the DOCG Colli Euganei Fior d'Arancio based on yellow muscat, while the Bagnoli DOC includes the friularo, a red wine with a great structure elaborated by a biotype of the raboso piave.
The hills of the upper part of Treviso are mainly viticultural to prosecco, from which the different types of Conegliano-Valdobbiadene are obtained, among which the Extra dry meets the greatest success. The particular, for the fine aromaticity distinguishes the Prosecco Valdobbiadene-Superiore of Cartizze, produced in the homonymous restricted area in the hamlet of San Pietro di Barbozza. Also in the area of ​​sweet wines, Torchiato di Fregona is produced in these areas, based on Prosecco and Verdiso, as well as Refrontolo Passito da Marzemino. In the eastern areas, as well as in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, the most widespread varieties are some international, such as pinot grigio, chardonnay and pinot bianco, merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon, even if the local friulano, verduzzo trevigiano and raboso piave they occupy a good part of this vineyard.

Country Italy
Morphology of the land Plain: 56%   Hill: 15%   Mountain: 29%
Climate and soil In the high mountains the winters are very cold and the summers are fresh; along the shores of Lake Garda the climate is particularly mild, while in the Po valley the winters are cold and humid. In the period from October to March, we find thick fog banks that characterize the Po Valley; summer is hot and very muggy.
History At the time of the Romans the region was called Venetia from the name of the ancient people that lived there. This region was also called Venice Euganea, always deriving from ancient inhabitants (Euganei) who were then absorbed by the Venetians. With Venezia Tridentina and Venezia Giulia, the Euganean Venice forms the so-called 'Tre Venezie'. Around 1000 a.C. the Venetians settled in the region, followed between the seventh and fifth centuries BC from the Etruscans and the RetiArusmati, and the meeting of their cultivation techniques began to take the first steps, with some success, to winemaking. The arrival of the Romans improved the situation and brought to fame the Rhaetian wine, that of the Euganean and Vicentine hills, magnified by Mariziale.
Typical products The famous Soave, Bardolino and Valpolicella wines are produced. Veneto produces not only large quantities of table wines but also some very high quality wines such as Amarone della Valpolicella, Valpolicella Classico ODC and sweet dessert wine Recioto di Soave has obtained the denomination DOCG, as well as Soave Superiore and the Bardolino Superiore.
Typical dishes All of Veneto was under the dominion of the Serenissima until 1797. The appetizers are numerous, both land and sea. You can remember the appetizing eels, that is fried lard and served with vinegar and salt, the baccalà mantecato, minced and steamed with salt, pepper, nutmeg and chopped parsley, the sardines in saor, fried and then layered with onions, cooked over low heat with oil, and then added vinegar, sugar, pine nuts and sultanas. Among the first courses stand out the bigoli, especially large spaghetti seasoned with duck sauce, with pocio, with sardines or in sauce. Here are the gnocchi alla cadorina, served with melted butter, walnuts, raisins and grated apples, pasta and beans with pork legs, tripe soup, scaligera soup and sopa coada, pigeon broth soup with bread and small diversity of ingredients. Among the best cheeses the hard cheese isiago when it is seasoned, excellent for grating, in particular that of the appreciated forms of vezzena, matured over two years and called extravagant, produced in particular at the Vezzena pass, on the Trentino side of the plateau of Asiago. Other excellent PDO cheeses are Monte Veronese, Montasio, Taleggio and Grana Padano, while the spress, smoked ricotta, stracchino and mascarpone are equally pleasing.
