Villalta is a tasting of the finest wine making traditions of the Verona area. Their wines are truly a declaration of passion, care and love for these grapes and land, tasted and felt in every glass.
Villalta winery’s signature Amarone is made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes from the classic area of Valpolicella. For an encore of flavour, high on the list is the Ripasso, a Corvina and Rondinella blend.
Villalta wines are pure expression of Veneto: a land where vines and wine have always been an integral part of history and culture, characterising the ways of life over the centuries.
The history of wine in Veneto begins long before the Greeks, who are recognised as the population who introduced the viticulture in Italy. During the Middle Age, wine production flourished thanks to the commercial power of Venice, which allowed the export of Venetian wines to other countries.
Above all, it was between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century that the Venetian enology relaunched, thanks to the contribution of two institutes: the School of Enology in Conegliano and the Experimental Station of Viticulture and Enology. The strategic importance of quality became a crucial point: thus began a development process that has never stopped.
Speaking of wine in Veneto is speaking of joy, of daily conviviality, of peasant stories that go back to ancient times, of deals taken between peasant people sealed in a tavern between a handshake and a glass of wine, of hard working people who have always worked the land from valleys to plains, producing food and wines that are famous all over the world today.
