One of Italy's most renowned wine regions, the valley of
Valpolicella is located just east of Lake Garda, and makes a
fabulous day trip for those visiting Verona. Ranking just after
Chianti, Valpolicella wines are made from three grape varietals,
namely Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara. Winemaking here
has existed since at least the time of the ancient Greeks and the
region is famed for its Recioto, Ripasso and Amarone wines. A visit
to Valpolicella will reward you with not only some of Italy's
finest wines, but also fine food and dining in the quaint,
picturesque villages of San Pietro Incariano, Fumane and Negrar.
The nearby park of Cascate di Molina is Italy's countryside at its
best, and boasts beautiful natural falls and hikes for adventurous
visitors to enjoy.
