The Valpolicella is located between Verona and Lake Garda, an easy drive from Venice. This group of small valleys has been famous for its wine production for over 2,000 years. Discover all of the wines made here today, including Amarone, Ripasso, Valpolicella and Recioto. Learn about the local grape varietals and unique production methods directly from the winemakers. Enjoy the beautiful hilly scenery as you explore the Valpolicella Classica wine producing area with your private guide.
Barolo is one of the top red wines of the world, and the pride of Italy’s Piedmont region. Here in the Langhe wine area, the Nebbiolo grape reaches its maximum potential. The winemakers capture every subtle nuance of the grapes in each bottle of Barolo through their meticulous production and aging methods.
Barbaresco is one of the great wines of the Piedmont region in northwestern Italy. Historically it was called Nebbiolo di Barbaresco, as Nebbiolo it the name of the grape varietal used in its production. General Michael von Melas of Austria celebrated his victory over the French in 1799 with a hearty glass of Barbaresco. Barbaresco has changed since then, however, as it wasn’t until the mid 19th Century that it was vinified into a dry style.
Our focus on this special excursion are the white varietals native to the Piedmont region. Discover wines such as Gavi, made from Cortese grapes, and Timorasso, which lends its name to both the varietal and the wine. Grape growing and wine making have been taking place in this quiet corner of Piedmont since ancient Roman times.
If Barolo is the king of the wines, Pinot Noir is the Prince. In Italy we can talk about the presence of Pinot Noir since the second half of the nineteenth century. In fact, Lombardy’s Oltrepò, with almost 3000 hectares of Pinot Noir (about 500 of which are for making red wine), is the most important Italian region for this varietal. The winemakers here produce red, white, rose and sparkling wines.
