Region Veneto

Veneto is a hilly region in the north-east of Italy bordering the Adriatic coast and produces some of Italy’s most recognised wines. The region has a vineyard area of 76,600 ha of which almost half are of the DOC and DOCG status wines. Two major climatic influences have an impact on the region; the cooler mountains to the North generate a continental effect whilst the Adriatic in the south has a warm maritime influence. White wines dominate the region including Pinot Grigio and the Garganega dominant wines of the Soave sub-region. Red Valpolicella wines made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, produce fragrant, dark fruit characters in a range of styles from dry, fresh, youthful wines to the intense, concentrated Amarone and sweet Recioto wines. Veneto is also home to fresh, lively Prosecco Sparkling wines produced from the Glera variety.

Winery QUINTARELLI

Located in the heart of the Valpolicella district of Veneto, Quintarelli is a renowned family wine estate with a near cult-like status. Founder and patriarch the late Giuseppe Quintarelli was known as the ‘Master of the Veneto’. He built his reputation by crafting small quantities of top quality wine made to the highest standards of perfection and released only when ready to drink. Since his death in 2012, the family continue to carry on his remarkable legacy. The grapes are meticulously selected in the vineyards often requiring many passes to obtain only the best, perfectly ripened fruit. Quintarelli wines are always small in allocation, high in demand, expensive but always an exceptional experience. The estate produces an array of top-tier wines including the Bianco Secco IGT, Primofiore IGT, Valpolicella Superiore, Rosso Ca del Merlo, Recioto della Valpolicella, and an Amarone della Valpolicella widely considered to be the very best in the region.
