WINE COUNTRY

Look for cellars and explore the wine-country of Verona!

Veronese soil is rich in mineral content, permeable, well-irrigated and is therefore ideal for the cultivation of the vine whose green leaves cover the gentle sun-lit slopes of Verona’s hills. The Veneto, with its 24 D.O.C. wines is at the top of the Italian Wine- producer’s list.

In order to promote and guarantee the quality of these wines a number of consortiums operate in this sector – they are: the Bardolino, Bianco di Custoza, Garda (for the lake region); the Valpolicella, Soave, Valdadige; Terradei forti Consortiums for the northern district of Verona; the Lessini Durello in Lessinia and the Arcole Consortium in the plain district – nine consortiums which have the official D.O.C. seal of approval.

These wine producing areas take the tourist on a journey, not only through this land’s culinary traditions (during its wine fests, in its inns, wine-bars, restaurants) but also through its art and cultural heritage.
