Wine
The story of Valpolicella wine is a fascinating journey to a land deriving its own name from a glorious wine-making tradition. According to some sources, the name "Valpolicella" comes from a contraction of the placename "Vallis (valleys) - polys (of many) - cellae (cellars)", a territory where history and tradition are not mere rhetoric, but part of an evolving reality rooted in these places and the people that have inhabited and influenced this land along the centuries.
