While most of us know about the Veneto Region because of the city of Venice (and those Venetian merchants that made the Veneto one of the most famous regions on the planet about 600-800 years ago), it is the city of Verona and its surrounding areas that we will focus on tonight...through its wines, of course.

In wine terms, Italy has gone through a revolution over the past 50 years and this region has led the charge with its prototypical vinous expressions: Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone. We all grew up with these wines; they graced every red-checkered table cloth joint west of the Atlantic Ocean; and no wines in Italy have changed as much as these since their origins long ago. Tonight will be an incredible voyage through the history of Italy and the modern history of Italian wine.
