Northeast Italy and Veneto

A neighboring region to Trentino-Alto Adige, this part of Italy is largely influenced by Lake Garda and its winds. Both warming and cooling, vines thrive under the influence of the breezes coming off that majestic body of water. Veneto is also home to Valpolicella, a region that’s as famous for its appassimento (drying grapes) winemaking technique as its varieties, as well as the renowned sparkling wine Prosecco.

Santa Margherita Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG

Lombardy

A large and diverse wine-growing region, Lombardy is home to several lakes—including the famed Lake Iseo—around which numerous vineyards thrive. Layered clay and limestone soils abound and coupled with the low amounts of rainfall, plus the Lake’s wind effects, wines often show freshness and delicacy.
