A BEAUTIFUL VALLEY
If you want a break from the city, and if you’re looking for a place connected to nature, from which you can see stars with no light pollution, and without the noise of pesky car horns, we have just the place for you. The Valpolicella valley, in northern Italy, is located in Veneto, bounded to the north by the Eastern Prealpine mountain range, to the south by the Adige river, and to the east by the city of Verona. Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy, is also nearby.
VALPOLICELLA IS HOME TO AMARONE WINE
If you are a nature-lover, and if you love wine and food, the Valpolicella is paradise. In fact, the area’s very name comes from the Latin “val polis cellae,” meaning “the valley of many wine cellars,” and local wineries produce world-famous wines like Amarone and Valpolicella Ripasso.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL: VALPOLICELLA’S BEST KEPT SECRET
Not everybody knows that this land also produces some of the best extra virgin olive oil in Italy. The Valpolicella’s climatic and geographic conditions are favorable to oil production, and olive trees dotting the hillsides make the region a treat for the eyes. Valpolicella EVOO is very unique: the color is deep green and gold, and its delicate flavor bears a lemony aftertaste. A single drop of a high-quality Valpolicella oil can deeply alter the flavor profile of any dish.
