Gambellara is a town and comune in the province of Vicenza, Veneto, Italy. It is northwest of European route E70.

Gambellara is a small town known for its wine production. The area has one DOC classified wine, Gambellara classico and Recioto de Gambellara which was in 2009 upgraded from DOC-level to the highest Italian appellation DOCG. The Recioto is also often made in a sparkling, vat-fermented, version,.

The vineyards are dominated by Garganega grapes trained in the traditional "Veronese pergola" system, though a few producers have recently changed to more modern training systems. Most wineyards are cultivated on steep hills with terraces.

The largest producer in Gambellara is the family-owned Zonin.
