Valpolicella Tours

1 review
After Chianti, the vinicultural region of Valpolicella produces the most wine in Italy under the DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata,) Italy’s top quality classification for wine. Winemaking has existed in the cool hills and mild climate of the area since the time of the ancient Greeks. 

The wine now labeled as Valpolicella comes from one or more of three grapes: Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara. The wines produced here tend to resemble Beaujolais and are often lighter in flavor and texture, often fruity and fragrant. Perhaps the most regarded wine from the region is the subtype called Amarone della Valpolicella. It is considered worldwide to be one of Italy’s finest wines.

Vineyards and tasting rooms (along with some great restaurants) are scattered throughout the valley, with everything from traditional villas and small, family-run spots to modern, tech-savvy winemakers. Most welcome guests for wine tastings or events.

Practical Info

The region of Valpolicella is located in the province of Veneto, Italy. It is east of Lake Garda and north of Verona. It is best to plan and check in advance to see if the wineries you want to visit accept visitors and require reservations.
