For November's wine tasting, we're off to Veneto, Italy! Situated in Italy's northeast, Veneto extends from the snow-capped Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea, by way of an expansive range of hills and a valley furrowed by rivers, canals and the Po River Delta. Venice, its regional capital, is famed for its canals, Gothic architecture and Carnival celebrations and near alpine Lake Garda, medieval Verona is known as the setting of Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet."
