Valpolicella and Soave: Sublime wines

The Valpolicella region is located north-west of Italy’s most romantic city, Verona.  In this area the warm breeze coming from Lake Garda mixes with the fresh winds from the northern Lissini mountains to create a special climate making this area the perfect spot for the production of  wines made from partially dried grapes.

Curiosity

Thanks to this special microclimate, the region is also well known internationally for its sweet peaches and cherries, its delicate extra virgin olive oil but most of all for its noble wines Amarone and Recioto, obtained from withered grapes. Until 70 years ago, the only wine produced here was Recioto, whereas Amarone was just a wine born by mistake from a farmer’s oversight but, as it often happens, a mistake resulted in a big discovery!

Suggestions

To fully savour this region and its products, we suggest you to stay here for a wine and food weekend. Sleeping in the fully relaxed atmosphere of a charming wine relais in the Valpolicella or Soave region after a wine tasting will give you an experience of a bygone era.
