Story

Discover the authentic wines of Veneto and Friuli with Houseboat Holidays Italia. An adventure among flavours, history and nature, from Prosecco to hidden wine gems.

Sailing with Houseboat Holidays Italia is not only an experience of absolute relaxation and connection with nature, but also a journey through the genuine and authentic flavours of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. Both regions, with their centuries-old winemaking traditions, offer the opportunity to discover extraordinary wines that bear witness to a history and culture that is renewed with every sip.

One Journey, One Thousand Flavours

The Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia are lands of contrasts and surprising discoveries, and from the mountains to the lagoons, every nook and cranny conceals a food and wine journey. Wines become an authentic expression of the territory and the passion of the people who produce them, and for Houseboat travellers they become an opportunity to taste the great traditional classics and discover many local wineries that produce bold and unforgettable wines.

 

 

Precenicco and the Lands of Friuli

Approaching Precenicco, one is greeted by the unmistakable aromas and colours of Friuli. This area, best known for Collio, offers white wines with character, often characterised by a surprising minerality and intense aromas of fruit and flowers. Imagine, then, tasting a Ribolla Gialla while admiring the river landscape, perhaps with the sun setting reflecting on the water and the gentle sound of nature, as you write your diary of the day's adventures: a perfect marriage of land and water.

Veneto and Friuli: The Homelands of Prosecco

When talking about wines from Veneto and Friuli, one cannot fail to mention Prosecco. Ideal for a memorable toast after a day full of hiking and cycling, or a simple moment of sharing before docking to enjoy the enchanting cities.

The Islands of the Venetian Lagoon

The islands of the Venetian lagoon guard ancient secrets and unique traditions. Dorona di Venezia is an indigenous Venetian white grape variety of the Garganega family and owes its name to the golden colour it takes on once matured. It was the favourite wine of the Venetian Doges and today represents a rarity to be discovered and appreciated, so let yourself be transported aboard your houseboat by the tasting of a wine rich in history and tradition.

 

 

The Best Wines of the Veneto to Taste on Board

While you let yourself be lulled by the fresh waters and contemplate the ever-changing landscapes, why not enrich your experience by tasting the best wines of the Veneto region?

  • Soave: Originating in the area of the same name, this white wine is distinguished by its elegance and freshness. Notes of almond and elderflower make it unmistakable.
  • Amarone della Valpolicella: Made from dried grapes, it offers intense sensations of ripe fruit, tobacco and chocolate on the palate.
  • Bardolino: Born on the shores of Lake Garda, it presents itself on the nose with aromas of cherry and blackberry, ideal with fish dishes.
  • Custoza: A blend of indigenous grapes gives life to this white wine with floral and citrus facets.
  • Valpolicella Ripasso: A special vinification method that gives the wine a robust and enveloping structure.

Enjoying wine is a pleasure, but always remember the responsibility of the driver. Safety should never be put on the back burner. Enjoy wine in moderation and make sure you have a sober captain at the helm.

Your journey with Houseboat Holidays Italia is an adventure through beauty, history and flavours. Each stop, each stopover, becomes an opportunity to discover, savour and experience the territory to the full. And the wines of Veneto and Friuli are there, ready to tell you a story in every glass. Have a good trip and a good tasting!
