Wine Regions of Italy
During our ten years we've discovered many of the finest
Italian wine estates in the Veneto and the other wine regions of Italy.
Many are tiny and never sell outside of Italy, yet produce some very fine
Italian wine .
To discover these
estates and their wines visit Best-Italian-Wines.com site.

is famous throughout the world for its wines – names like Pinot Grigio,
Visiting Venice or Verona and enjoy good wine, great scenery and
exceptional food? Then a wine tour should most certainly be included in
You can do this in two ways, either with a guided
tour or on your own. I would suggest doing it on your own...if you have a
car and have been to Italy before.
Prefer a guided tour? Then this is a great one...
A Small Group Wine Tour from Venice
Join a small group tour discovering the beautiful vineyards near Venice. You'll get to try some of the greatest wines from the Veneto region from Prosecco to Pinot Grigio.

Places are very limited and demand is great so don't miss out...click for details.
The Wine Routes
Not far from Verona and Lake Garda exists a gentle world of vineyards
shadowed by the mountains of the Dolomites. This is the land of
Valpolicella (click for more), which has been producing great
wines for over five centuries.
Visit some of the smaller estates for an authentic taste of what
this region is all about. To explore this region and the nearby Soave
I would suggest staying at the delightful Monte Tondo.
Oldest of all Italian wine routes, the Prosecco route is an easy day
trip from Venice. Personally though, I'd suggest you rather stay somewhere in the heart of this region
and explore the many wonderful estates and villages of this part of the
Veneto a little more thoroughly. In terms of where to stay, the Agriturismo Vedova is our recommendation.
You will discover the Prosecco territory to be a land in which
the traditions of centuries past are still very much alive in the food
and the wines as well as in the families, who for generations have
cultivated these vines with a love and passion.
Strada del Soave
Thirteen communities make up Soave Doc territory. The area extends from
the town of Soave through to Monteforte d’Alpoe. The grape used to
produce this most famous of Italian white wines is the Garganega. Once
the Soave name was associated with mass produced wines but in recent
years a number of estates have been producing truly fine wines.
Other Wine Regions of Italy
In Tuscany I particularly enjoy the wine from Badia a Coltibuono, The winery is something wonderful indeed, a restored thousand year old monastery. Even better news is that you can stay in this amazing place.
If you are in Florence and want to do a quick winery tour while there click here for some options.
Having lived in Piedmont for nearly ten years there are a lot of wine
estates in the region that I am particularly fond of, you can read about these
on my Italian wine site.
