Valpolicella, the “valley of the many cellars”

Valpolicella, the “valley of the many cellars”

Amarone, Recioto, Valpolicella, Valpolicella Ripasso, Valpolicella Classico; these are the superb wines of the Valpolicella area, the hilly territory set between Verona and Lake Garda. The name comes from "val polis cellae" that means "the valley of the many cellars".

But the area has a lot to offer in order of culture and art as well. Good examples are the important romanesque churches of  San Giorgio di Valpolicella and San Floriano, the natural parc Parco delle Cascate di Molina and the spectacular natural bridge Ponte di Veja, a rock masterpiece which inspired Dante for the description of the 'Malebolge' in the Divina Commedia.

Art, nature, culture, good food and special wines: Valpolicella is all this and much more.
