Located in northeastern Italy, to the east of Lake Garda , the Valpolicella scenic vineyards, start in the fertile plain and climb up to the hills, north of Verona, offering a magnificent view over the town. This is an area full of history, culture and some of the best Italian wine.

Grape and wine have been well soaked in the history of Valpolicella (valley of many cellars) dating from the prehistoric era, through Roman to Medieval times, beginning with “Vino Retico” nowadays known as Recioto wine; the quality of which was already known by Emperor Augustus and from which is derived today Amarone, a dry, severe, fragrant wine, universally regarded as the finest wine made in this area and ones of Italy’s most important reds.

Try the wonderful food in Verona’s “Osterie” (traditional restaurants) from the Arena to Piazza dei Signori – a plate of risotto or “Bigoli col Sugo d’Asino”. Leave the city behind and visit the ancient cellars and cantinas of Valpolicella wine region. Travel Seasons: each season offer their own wonderful ambiance, but springtime when the cherry trees blossom and late summer during grape-harvesting period are beautiful.
