Even in these enlightened days, this small wine zone on the eastern, Veneto, edge of Lake Garda is not well known – we unearth a few Bardolino wines that demand a second look
From the eastern shores of Lake Garda comes a wine you may not know very much about

Bardolino is one of those wines that, chances are, you won’t know very much about – mainly because it doesn’t get written about very much (as in the past it had a poor reputation) and it’s not so easy to find outside Italy. Formerly known as Bardolino Classico, this Veneto DOC wine zone now occupies all the land between the southeastern shore of Lake Garda and the River Adige, and is known simply as Bardolino. Named after the town that nestles on the eastern edge of Lake Garda in the province of Verona, the alluvial soils and microclimate produce fresh, light-bodied reds and rosés (chiaretti) made from Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella in varying percentages depending on the producer (small amounts of other red grape varieties are also permitted).

About Italia!

We begin on the heel of Italy this month, where a return visit to Puglia is both a trip down memory lane and a voyage of discovery, exploring places like Ostuni, Locorotondo, Lecce and, of course, Alberobello. Venice after dark is our next adventure, when a night walk through the city reveals the ghostly secrets of days gone by. Hop on the Italian ‘Trans-Siberian Express’ for a journey through Abruzzo and Molise, and in this month of remembrance we pay tribute with the story of Monte Cassino, one of the Second World War’s most tragic battles.
