Valpolicella and Soave

dove i vini si fanno sublimi

Filter by:

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.
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!

Valpolicella and Soave: The territory

A little further east of Verona there is another hilly landscape known as the Soave wine routes.
Cradle of a glorious past, of which the walls and ramparts along with the medieval castle are still today its emblem, since ancient times Soave has always been an area with a great wine vocation. The winding road through the Val d’Illasi offers a fascinating landscape with its centennial olive groves, its grapevine lines and its luxuriant cherry-trees.  
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.
