This year at Eataly, you have the opportunity to dive deep into our monthly featured wines with a series of curated events that will have you feeling like a wine connoisseur in no time. From a classic walk-around tasting event, to an exclusive private dinner with a top producer of this famed wine, there is an event catered to every taste.

In October 2023 join us at Amarone Camp! Three unique experiences to explore the world of this iconic red! But first...


Hailing from the northeast region of Veneto, Amarone is produced in the rolling hillsides  of Valpolicella. Unlike other wines, Amarone undergoes a unique process prior to fermentation called appassimento where grapes are allowed to dry for around 120 days after they are harvested. After the grapes have dried, they are crushed and fermented at low temperatures for one to two months. After fermentation, Amarone is aged for up to seven years in oak barrels. The partially dried grapes concentrate the juices and increase skin contact, giving it its rich, complex flavor, intense red color, and higher alcohol content. No other wine is produced this way, making Amarone truly unique. On the nose, Amarone boasts notes of plum, cherry, tea leaves, licorice, and spices.
