More information on Colli Euganei

The Euganean Hills (Colli Euganei in Italian) find themselves in the heart of the Venetian plain, standing out for their near-perfect conical shapes, the result of volcanic phenomena dating back millions of years. The territory of the Euganean Hills doesn’t only offer various beautiful wineries that can be visited for a wine tasting, but also medieval castles, 16th-century Renaissance villas with romantic gardens and Italy’s most renowned volcanic hot spring area.

Your wine tastings in the Euganean Hills will give you the opportunity to discover the different appellations that originate from this territory. Perhaps the most representative wine of the Euganean Hills is Fior d’Arancio - meaning orange blossom - made using a particular variety of yellow muscat characterized by an intense floral aroma. On top of this DOCG appellation, the territory boasts another DOC appellation including red, white, sparkling, and aromatic wines.
