Venice may bring visions of romantic gondola rides through the canals, but the region surrounding it is even more interesting if you love Italian wines.

The Veneto region in northern Italy reaches from Lake Garda in the west to the Adriatic Sea in the east. It is home to a wide range of wines both red and white, with more types of wines produced than in any other region in Italy.

There are 80 grape varieties that are authorized in Veneto. Vintners grow many varieties that are native to other areas of the world, but the best wines come from the grapes that were bred to this region.

White varieties include Garganega, Prosecco, Trebbiano, and Vespaiola. Reds include Corvina, Molinara, Rondinella, and Negrara.

Amarone, Valpolicella, Soave, and sparkling Prosecco are some of the favorites that are produced in Veneto that remain some of the top selling wines throughout the world.
