My wife Maria is from the Veneto region. This is the region that is home to Venice, Vicenza and Verona.
I am continually under pressure from Maria and the rest of her family to feature the wines from this region - of course they believe their local wines to be the best wines in the world!
To be honest I love many of these wines and I am very happy to feature them!
Nowadays there are plenty of vineyards near Venice, Verona and Vicenza which are producing excellent wines. I'd like to share a few I really enjoy and take you on a video journey exploring the region and its wine.
Explore a little of the various wine regions of the Veneto in this video...
I feature the Candoni wines elsewhere on the site and they offer great value – particularly the Prosecco. Listen and watch Caterina Candoni explaining a little about the family's wines.
Tommasi is THE name when it comes to producing arguably the best of all wines from the Veneto. I am talking about the Amarone della Valpolicella. For more on this wine and the Tommasi vineyards click here.
