Veneto — where to start?

This is huge region with a wild array of wines. The most important are Prosecco, Valpolicella, and Soave. There is another short list of awesome regions such as Lugana. It’s a region that is easy to get overwhelmed by.

Let’s dive into the big three as mentioned in the video, and then a few other regions of note from there.
