Opera, Spritz, romantic holidays in Venice or Verona, somewhere around the corner, you had a glass of local wine and fall in love with it immediately. Veneto wine region, in the northeast corner of Italy, is probably where a wine lover gets to know Italian wine from the very beginning.

Veneto wine region is smaller than Tuscany, Piedmont, Puglia, and Sicilia, but it produces more wine. It is well covered by plain land and valleys. To the north, there are the Alps which bring cool air and pure mountain springs. To the south, the beautiful Adriatic Sea channels in from the Romantic city, Venice. Lago di Garda and “little string” Adige River extend till its neighbor region, Trentino. The hills and valleys fill up wherever they can find a spot.


Scriani - Valpolicella - Wine Tourism - The Good Gourmet

Amarone, Pinot Grigio, Soave, and Prosecco, those must-know Veneto wines push the Veneto wine region to the top in Italy, as the biggest production region in Italy.

Amarone, with the famous “Appassimento” wine making technique, represents a unique style of highly concentrated, powerful, and long ageing potential wine. Pinot Grigio and Soave, one is named after the grape variety, the other is after its village. Both are the two-signature dry and refreshing white wines from the Veneto wine region. Prosecco, made mainly with Glera grapes, is the most accessible sparkling wine. From Brut to off-dry, drinking alone, or making a cocktail, it simply makes you happy.

However, the Veneto wine region has much more than this. What it is offering “hiddenly” might not make it the Veneto wine region you know.


Valpolicella and Amarone are undoubtedly the most famous wines from the Valpolicella village in the Veneto wine region. Amarone, in particular, is a unique and intense dry red wine made from dried grapes. However, the local winemakers in the center of Valpolicella are producing exceptional wines with international blends such as MerlotCabernet SauvignonCabernet FrancCarmenerePinot Noir, and more, showcasing their versatility and creativity. These wines are a testament to the winemakers’ skills and their ability to adapt to changing consumer tastes.

Lago di Garda and Valdadige of Veneto wine region has these lovely guys

The Veneto wine region is a treasure trove of hidden gems, and its northwest side is no exception. Lago di Garda, Monte Bardo, and Adige River are all located in this area, and they offer a unique terroir that is perfect for growing Bardolino, the lightest red wine in Italy.

Bardolino is often compared to Valpolicella wine, but it is much lighter and fresher, almost like a Rosé. In fact, some have even called it Italy’s “Beaujolais.” However, the Veneto region is not just known for its red wines. 

Soave, a white wine made primarily from the Garganega grape variety, is also a popular wine from this region. Soave is produced only with white grapes, and it is a favorite wine destination for wine lovers. The Soave DOC is the most famous Garganega-producing region, located in the Veneto in northeastern Italy. It is found throughout the region, and it is known for its crisp acidity, floral aromas, and mineral notes.

Along Monte Bardo and Adige River, Valdadige is the name of the endless valley. The mountains are soaring into the clouds, but I can barely open my eyes from the sunlight reflection of the Adige River, even in winter. 

Valdadige is a wine region located in the northern part of Italy, covering three provinces in two regions: Bolzano and Trento in Trentino-Alto Adige and Verona in the Veneto. The region is known for producing a variety of red, rosé, and white wines, including some of the world’s best Pinot GrigioValdadige DOC, also known as Etschtaler DOC in German, is a multi-regional designation established in 1975. 

Although it covers a large area, it has an important common denominator: the Adige river, which flows through the region and influences the climate and soil. The region’s wines are characterized by their freshness, minerality, and elegance, making them a popular choice among wine enthusiasts. 

It seems unstoppable when talking about Italian wine, but let’s give it a pause. Now, you are in front of a different Veneto wine region, and that gives you a perfect excuse to go there again or for the first time.
