All old acquaintances: Prosecco, Soave, Valpolicella, Amarone – they are all at home in Veneto.

An admittedly somewhat dubious record: Veneto is the most productive wine region in Italy. The region in the north-east of the «boot» covers 75,000 hectares of vineyards and produces the largest quantity of wine in the country. The yields per hectare are often not exactly low either.

The best Prosecco vineyards

This is largely owing to the immense success of Pinot grigio around the world. Veneto is the epicentre of production of this grape. The lion’s share is exported to the USA and the UK, where the variety is affectionately known as «Greej».

The second bestseller from Veneto is called Prosecco. One hundred and fifty million bottles of this sparkling wine made from Glera grapes are produced every year. There is certainly class to be found amongst the masses: The best specimens come from Congeliano Valdobbiadene and the steep slopes of Cartizze, where the vines benefit from especially abundant sunshine.

And that’s not all: the fresh and fruity Soave and Bianco di Custoza white wines, both predominantly made from Trebbiano and Garganega, as well as the quaffable Valpolicella and Bardolino red wines from the Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grape varieties – they all have their origins in Veneto with its extensive vineyards located between Verona and Lake Garda.

The Amarone wine phenomenon

The star of the premium quality segment is Amarone. It is pressed from dried grapes. It owes its opulence, lush fruity sweetness and high alcohol content of up to 17 per cent by volume to this method. It is made from the same grape varieties as Valpolicella and Bardolino. Innovative producers, particularly the traditional Masi company, have also revitalised forgotten varieties such as Oseleta and Corbinone.

Masi also developed the so-called Ripasso technique. To achieve this, young red wine is married with whole, dried grapes and fermented a second time. The result: an intensely fruity and spicy wine that remains light and drinkable. A sweet speciality of Veneto is Recioto. It comes in both red and white.

Classic dishes from «Harry’s Bar»

What are the sights in Veneto? Where to start: the opera capital of Verona, the Carnival of Venice, the university city of Padua...? The Veneto region is also home to the most beautiful villas designed by Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, and the hills of the Prosecco region are a delight for nature lovers.

Delicacies from the region range from fegato alla veneziana, sliced veal liver, to risi e bisi, rice with tender young peas, and red radicchio from Treviso. Two world-famous dishes were invented at «Harry’s Bar» in Venice: Carpaccio Cipriani, wafer-thin slices of beef with a delicate sauce, and the Bellini, a cocktail made from Prosecco and fresh peach purée. And make sure you do as the locals do in the lagoon city: at around eleven in the morning, one meets up with friends at a bar and drinks «un’ombra» – a «shadow» in the form of a small glass of white wine.
