Negrar is a (municipality) in the comune Province of Verona in the Italian region Veneto, located about 110 kilometres (68 mi) west of Venice and about 12 kilometres (7 mi) northwest of Verona.
History [ edit ]
In prehistoric times, it was a center of the
Arusnati, a not well-known population of perhaps mixed origins. In the Middle Ages it was a free commune until it was acquired by the Scaliger of Verona (14th century). Later it was part of the Republic of Venice, under which, in 1791, it received the right to hold a livestock market.
Economy [ edit ]
Negrar and its villages are mainly devoted to agricultural, with production of
cherries, vine and fruit, and of wines such as Valpolicella, Amarone and Recioto.
