Situated in the heart of Northern Italy, the region is famous for its rich history in wine making and gastronomy. It is also known for its medieval architecture, music, cinema and art that is recognised and appreciated nationally and internationally.

The ‘golden’ soil in the region makes it conducive for vineyards to prosper, the mitigating effect the Adriatic Sea has on the coastal climate helps produce wines with character and complex aromas and flavours.

Italian wines are loved by consumers the world over for their diversity of styles, protection of indigenous varieties, food-friendliness and, quite often, great value. Italian wine dates back to 800 B.C. when the Romans were introduced to viticulture by the Greeks. The country was found to have the perfect climate for the cultivation of the art of viticulture and winemaking. With more than 350 wine grape varieties taking their roots across 20 different regions, it is no wonder that Italy is one of the world’s largest producer of wine, representing about one-third of the global production.

Italian vineyards can loosely be classified into three distinct regions: North, Central, and South. These different areas encompass a variety of climates, resulting in distinct aromas and flavours.

Veneto boasts of 14 DOCG and 29 DOC regions today, 25% of wines produced in the region are made and sold under DOCG & DOC titles.

Emilia – Romagna

The region is considered Italy’s capital for gastronomy and one of the country’s most prolific wine regions. Its viticultural heritage dates back to the seventh century B.C., ranking it among the oldest of Italy’s wine regions. From the rolling hills in the west to the lower-lying plains east of Parma, Modena and Bologna, the region’s geographical diversity is significant and plays an important part in creating the varied terroirsfound here.
