Italian cuisine goes hand in hand with a long-established wine culture. Food and wine are naturally interlaced in Italy, especially in the Veneto region where one can find more than 14 D.O.C. wines, of which one third is produced in the province of Verona. Valpolicella, Recioto, Amarone, Bardolino, Bianco di Custoza, Lugana, Durello and Soave are all produced in the hilly areas surrounding Verona.
