Enjoy more wine, enjoy wine more.

What do you mean “Venetian” wine?

In this city of San Marco, wine has always been more popular than water. In fact, the local bàcari (wine bars) serve an average of 50,000 glasses of wine every day!

This is not your everyday cabernet. The wines Venice enjoys today come from all over the Tri-Veneto region — and beyond – many produced from native grape varieties imported centuries ago from the island of Crete, Greece, the Dalmatian coast, and cultivated over time to bring out their best qualities. Vineyards have became a pervasive feature of the Tri-Veneto landscape (Veneto, Trentino-Alto Adige, and Friuli Venezia-Giulia), and the extraordinary variety of wines they produce a staple in regional cuisine. In fact, the Veneto alone produces more than 53 million gallons of wine every year – more than any other region in Italy!
