Valpolicella is an hilly area a few kilometers north of Verona, cradle of the well-known Amarone DOCG (guarantee of origin), a land rich in food and wine excellences and with a strong cultural impact. This valley has four appellations: Valpolicella DOC, Valpolicella Ripasso DOC, Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG and Recioto della Valpolicella DOCG. These fruity red wines are made mostly from local grapes: Corvina, Rondinella and also Corvinone and Molinara; Recioto and Amarone della Valpolicella use grapes partly dried to increase the flavours and alcohol content. The unique thing about these four wines is that they are made from the same blend of grapes.

The name Valpolicella has probably Roman origins in the words Valle poli cellae, in latin “valley of the many cellars”, proving the ancient wine making tradition of this area. Here it was produced a red wine, sweet and very concentrated, probably close to the Recioto that is still produced nowadays, called Acinatico or Retico, that the Romans drunk adding water and spices.
Even if Valpolicella is known all over the world for its famous wines, especially the Amarone, its territory is made of beautiful landscapes, sweet hills that become mountains as you move north, valleys with old villages, gorgeous villas, medieval churches, making it a tourist destination in its own.

You will be taken to an historical winery that produces Amarone Docg for the guided visit.
There, you will be able to discover, thanks to the tales of the winemakers, the many ways in which Amarone is produced.
