In Veneto, you’ll find the “off the beaten path” viticulture zones of Valpolicella and Valdobbiadene. Valpolicella is well known for its bold red Amarone that is unique only to the region. And if a red isn’t really your style then the town of Valdobbiadene, known as the land of “bubbly” and Prosecco, will surely impress.

The #3 Best Countryside Destination Wedding in Italy
The Italian wine region of Franciacorta looks like an elegantly knitted quilt with its patchwork of multi-colored trees, stonewall castles, and vibrant vineyards that all come together to create a beautiful landscape. With a seemingly endless variety of vineyards wrapping around the valley, many couples choose to have their Italian vineyard themed wedding here.
Part of what makes this wine region so unique for a destination wedding in Italy is that during the ice ages, retreating glaciers pulled back the top layer of earth, leaving behind a mineral-rich soil that now creates the world-renowned “Franciacorta Fizz” wine. That’s right, this region specializes in champagne, unique to most wine regions throughout the world. So, pour a glass of Italian champagne that was handcrafted in the surrounding vineyards, and make a toast to your future life with a once in a lifetime celebration in Franciacorta.
