Amarone has been present in Valpantena since the far distant past. According to the Roman historians, the Romans were seduced by the sweetness of its wine and the flavors of this valley’s products. They believing the Valpantena soil to be ideal for growing grapes, intensified by the clearing of its woods and planting grapevines. Valpantena, in Greek, means the “Valley of the Gods” but in Verona’s traditions it has taken on the meaning of the “Valley of all wines”.
