Food and Wine Tourism
Alpine foothills, rolling hills and plains trace the outlines of our land, where wine and oil find their highest expression in high quality production.
The Veneto region of Italy is the leading producer of DOC wines, with 19 wine consortia and another 25,500 viniculture farms and vineyards.
Veronese signature wines include: Amarone, Bardolino, Custoza, Durello, Lugana, Recioto, Soave, Valdadige and Valpolicella.
It feels like a vacation within a vacation when you discover the countryside and the hills, while visiting winecellars and vineyards where you can taste our wines.
The Province of Verona is the northernmost area of the world in which it is possible to cultivate olive trees for the production of extra virgin olive oil.
Among the most prestigious is Lake Garda’s olive oil, known for its deep green colour and delicate fragrance
The olive oil produced in the Veronese hills is yellow and decisive, much appreciated for its high quality.
A visit to the oil mill will allow you to stroll among the olive trees, to learn the secrets of cultivation and taste the oil.
Don’t miss a visit to the oil museum in Cisano - Bardolino.
