Venezie is the region which encompasses three regions; Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige, Fruili-Venezia Giulia. The climate in this region is influenced by the Alps which the Venezie vineyards are on the sunny side. Growing conditions in the region range from cool at high altitudes to warm near the Adriatic Sea and along the valley of the rivers that flow though it. Although the culture of the Venezie, like the name, was determined by the ancient Venetian Republic, strong influences can be felt other nations that have come and gone from the area. This resulted is an assortment of domestic and imported grape varieties. This array of vines allow for fine whites and reds ranging from the young and simple to the aged and complex.
