Valpolicella
Valpolicella, the 'pearl of Verona', is a hilly viticultural region in Italy's northeast. Winemaking in the region has existed since at least the time of the ancient Greeks, and continues today with a rich tradition of red wine production.

Valpolicella's mild to cool continental climate suits its three primary grape varieties: Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara. A fresh, fragrant, light-bodied wine, Valpolicella is second only to Chianti in total DOC production.

The geology of the region ranges from morainic gravel near Lake Garda, to alluvial deposits in the fertile central plains, to volcanic soils in the east near the Soave DOC.

The mild continental climate of the region is a direct result of the surrounding bodies of water and the cool winds coming from the Alps to the north.
