THE VENETO

The Veneto is the leader in wine production in Italy, and has 30% of the total DOC/DOCG production.  Premium wine producing regions are Vicenza, Padova, Treviso, in the western province of Verona hills between Lake Garda and the town of Soave, and in the eastern plains of the Piave and Tagliamento River basins.  Conegliano, the region famed for Prosecco, has set the standard for not only the production of sparkling wines, but Italian viticulture overall. Of all the wines produced in this region, 55% of which are white, Soave is the most popular varietal abroad.  And among the reds, Amarone della Valpolicella is the flagship red wine of this region.
