The Veneto region is located in Northeastern Italy, lying between the foothills of the Alps and the top of the Adriatic Sea. This ribbon of land, nestled among picturesque vineyards, is home to charming cities such as Verona, Vicenza, Padova, Treviso, and Veneto’s crowning beauty: Venice.
Veneto offers numerous combinations of microclimates, thanks to the Dolomites blocking cold temperatures from central Europe, indigenous grapes and wine traditions that hold their own in spectacular fashion. No other region boasts such winemaking diversity in such close proximity.
From hearty reds to fragrant sparklers, these radically unique expressions are representative of what drives Italy’s global wine success. Geography might help explain why this region is home to so many individual pockets of wine but it is especially the agricultural and entrepreneurial spirit of its people to make this area one of the leading wine making region in the world.
