VenetoThe Veneto region which encompasses Verona to the west all the way to Venice is famous for its white soaves and proseccos as well as distinctive reds such as Bardolino Classico. It is an area with many different climates and soils that provide an eclectic group of wines. The art of delaying fermentation to achieve the proper sweetness and alcohol has the valpolicella area of Veneto on the map for its Amarone della Valpolicella. Another wine that emulates the amarone is the Bardolino Superiore, which is derived from freshly harvested grapes fermented with some slightly drier ones.

This Veneto company had converted to farming its grapes organically from 2007, as well as producing certified organic wines that have satisfying quality. The name of the company comes from a 450 year old oak tree that sits on top of the hill overlooking the vineyard. L'Antica Quercia strongly believes that biodiversity and natural methods combine to make strikingly unique wines.
