Wine region

Veneto, one of the largest and most important wine producing and certainly the most important wine trading region in Italy, must be viewed with one eye laughing and one eye crying. Commercial successes, such as those of the trading companies around Verona or those of wines like Soave, Valpolicella and Bardolino, have not been achieved in recent decades by any other Italian region except Chianti and Nero d'Avola.

But success, as is well known, often makes blind. And this is probably the only way to explain the fact that the trading houses, cooperatives and winegrowers between Venice and Lake Garda have thoroughly slept through the trend toward forced quality winegrowing, as seen in Tuscany and Piedmont, Friuli and South Tyrol.

Apart from personalities such as Maculan, Anselmi, Masi or Pieropan, who sensed and anticipated the new development decades ago, viticulture in the region has only recently realized that the future really lies in class and not in mass. As a result, 200-300 quintals are still harvested from the vines on the plains around Verona and Vicenza - it may well be a bit more! But the efforts to improve the tattered image with high-quality products are unmistakable.

Purists may criticize that grape varieties other than the native ones are used, that Chardonnay suddenly appears in Soave and Cabernet in Valpolicella. It has always been good for the quality of the wine, and what the young generation can show today can also convince on the international stage.
