Located in the sun-kissed hills north-west of Verona, Valpolicella is one of the most coveted food and wine destinations in the Veneto region. Famous for its delicious food and wine, Valpolicella boasts some of Italy’s most appreciated wines - all with DOC and DOCG denominations - such as Valpolicella Classico, Valpolicella Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto. The quality and prestige of these famous wines are to be found in the long experience of producers who pass down traditions and production methods from generation to generation.

The Valpolicella cuisine uses high quality ingredients coming almost exclusively from the area. Among the most popular delicacies are cold cuts, broth tagliatelle broth with chicken livers, beans with pork rind, mixed boiled meats, paired with 'pearà sauce' (made with grated stale bread, marrow, pepper and cheese) and game.
