The culture of wine in the region Veneto

High-quality wines are produced all over Italy, and the region Veneto, with its numberless wines that are well-known all over the world, is not an exception.

Everybody knows that wine is one of the most appreciated Italian products abroad. You might also know that Veneto is one of the Italian regions where the wine culture is deeper-rooted. From Prosecco to Amarone, many wines were born in this region, have then arrived to all the other Italian regions and went over the Italian borders to tickle the palates all over the world.

Certainly there is a deep relation between wine and Veneto, a relation that does not only come from the numberless wineries that fill the region, but also from the peasant culture of the region, which seems to have penetrated into the collective memory of all the inhabitants of the region. For the inhabitants of Veneto drinking an “ombra” (meaning shadow – this is how a glass of wine is called in Veneto) in someone’s company in a typical tavern or at some friend’s means sharing a part of their culture and habits with other people.  

If the culture of wine in Veneto is still handed down to younger generations, this is also due to the huge wine heritage that this region has, a heritage that has become a pride exactly like other peculiarities of this region that have made it famous in the world, from art to nature.

The wines that are produced in Veneto are numberless and each one is different from the other ones: from red to white wines, from sparkling to still wines, wine production in Veneto is really very varied and wide. No matter the type of match you are looking for and no matter the occasion: in any case you can be sure that you will certainly find a suitable wine from Veneto.  

Veneto, which has the primacy in Italy as far as the number of DOC wines is concerned, can be divided into three wine zones: the zone of Verona and Lake of Garda, the zone of Soave, Berici Hills and Euganean Hills, and the zone of Treviso and Piave. To the wines produced in the zone of Garda belong Bardolino Superiore, which is realised with typical vines, especially with native vines: corvina, rondinella and molinara. Another very famous wine produced in this area is Amarone della Valpolicella.

In the second zone wines like Trebbiano di Soave, Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay are produced. If you head to the province of Vicenza, you arrive in the zone of Gambellara, which is famous for the production of Recioto and Vin Santo, and in Breganze, where Torcolato is produced. Red Tocai is a typical product of the Berici Hills, while Euganean Hills are famous for wines like Moscato fior d’Arancio and Serprino. The third zone, in the province of Treviso, is especially well-known for Prosecco di Valdobbiadene, while some of the most important wines in the zone of Piave are Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Verduzzo.  

With this variety and richness of high-quality wines, no wonder that the culture of wine is so deep-rooted in the region Veneto!
