Le Tre Venezie

Taste five of north-eastern Italy’s greatest hits at our Garden Party: this evening, 6-8pm

Venezia blog

Home to some of the Europe’s most historic and romantic cities, glistening lakes and spectacular alpine vistas, the north-eastern regions of Italy have traditionally been a favorite destination on many a traveler’s map. But given their popularity with vacation-makers it’s easy to forget that Le Tre Venezie, the term used to encompass the three regions into which Venice’s sphere of influence historically extends — Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige — are also at the very forefront of Italy’s wine production.

All three regions undoubtedly feel the impact of their unique location and a special proximity to the Alps, of which Le Tre Venezie are on the sunny side and thus protected from damp cold from Eastern Europe.

Though blessed with ancient native grapes, today’s rare mix of international varieties reflects a modern approach to winemaking in the area. Many of Italy’s most forward-thinking producers can be found in Friuli and Trentino, and have been strongly influenced by neighboring Austria and Slovenia. The results are some of Italy’s finest white wines, and an increasing number of complex reds.

Indeed, many winemakers and wine professionals continue to learn their craft in the area: Veneto – now the largest producer of wine in the country – is home to the prestigious Scuola Enologica in Conegliano, as well as Vinitaly, Italy’s largest wine fair held annually in Verona.

Tonight, Tuesday, August 11, we’ll be pouring five of your favorite wines from Le Tre Venezie. We think they’re the perfect wines for summer; see for yourself this evening in the cool seclusion of our lush garden, where you can pair all five with Chef Patti Jackson‘s tastiest antipasti.
