Drinking in Veneto: PROSECCO - a Dry or Extra Dry white sparkling wine made from Glera ("Prosecco") grapes. Venetians consider Prosecco an ideal apperitivo or ombrette (pick-me-up). APEROL is the perfect aperitf. As coffee time, which is one of the main after-lunch ceremonies, the 'aperitivo' before the evening meal, its absolutely an adequate and enjoyed tradition since the Romans. APEROL SPRITZ - it's probably the most popular drink in Veneto. BEER is less popular in Italy, but exists. The best known Italian beer: "la Peroni". And finally GRAPPA - uniquely Italian drink, has been around since the Middle Ages. For generations, Italians have sipped this "firewater" after meals and even added a little to their morning espresso, to "correct" it.
Always knew I live in the wrong country :-))))
Veneto is a wine region. Lucky combination of Alpine climate and Med sun makes 1/2 of work for good grapes and the second half of success is diligence and sincerity - Italians really care what to drink! Veneto specials are: Soave, Pinot Grigio, Tocai, Prosecco, Verduzzo, Refosco and Raboso. Actually Chardonnay, Cabernet, Merlot, Sauvignon as well. The list of the best wines of Veneto is longer then my knowlege in this subject!
