Wine tasting Venice – enjoy and learn!


Wine is the life blood of Italy and the Veneto is a huge wine producing area which includes the very popular prosecco, which is the region’s biggest export! The wines produced here are very diverse as well as prosecco Amarone and Soave both come from here.

There are many styles of wine and there is a high concentration of native grape varieties such as Glera, Corvina and Garganega. The region is protected from the harsh northern European climate by the Alps and the cooler climate of these foothills are well suited to the production of white wines. The warm Adriatic coastal plains rivers and valleys are the places where the warm red wines, Valipolicella, Amarone and Bardolino are produced.

Wine tasting Venice – try an aperitif!


The time just before the sun sets is the time for local venetians to indulge in an aperitif, and Venice comes alive!

The aperitif is drunk in the bacari di venezia, a kind of local wine bar where small tapas are served.. An osteria in Italy was originally a place serving wine and simple food. Lately, the emphasis has shifted to the food, but menus tend to be short, with the emphasis on venetian cuisine – local specialities. These small dishes are called cicchetti. The bacari are usually quite stylish and eclectic in their decor and each has its own personality. But one thing they will all have in common and that is to give you the opportunity to sample a large selection of wines from the region! Whatever your preference, wine tasting in Venice is something you simply must do!
