Valpolicella wine production

 The primary aim;  obtaining the highest quality wine

Our Valpolicella wine production: While initially the total area under vines was 3.5 hectares, at present the company boasts 46 hectares of vineyards planted directly with the traditional indigenous varietals of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara, and the recent planting of Oseleta, Croatina and the white Garganega.

The vine training system used in the fourteen hectares of vineyard nearby the winery is the “double pergola”, while the other vineyards in the municipalities of Sant’Ambrogio and San Pietro in Cariano are trained using the “guyot” system. The light, dark alluvial soil rich in gravel, and the meticulous vine pruning and control techniques ensure the production of prime quality grapes, part of which are selected for drying to obtain the most full-bodied and intense wines of our range.

Vini Valpolicella

With the primary aim of obtaining the highest quality – following personally each single process in the vine – our choice is to exploit only the 40% of the harvest to make our own wine, with a total annual production of 150 thousand bottles, approximately.

The grapes are strictly harvested by hand at the end of September. Part of them are carefully selected and left to dry until  ate January, while the rest is brought immediately to the winery for vinification.

Our cellar is divided into two areas: in the first room grapes are received, stocked, processed, and the final product is bottled. The second room – more silent and protected – is the place where we age our wines in small barrels and we leave them to mature slowly in the bottles.

At present, the drying facilities where our grapes are left to wither are located nearby the vineyard in San Pietro in Cariano – Valpolicella.

Valpolicella – Our Land

Valpolicella (Valpolexèla in Venetian dialect) is the hill country that lies at the foot of the Veronese Pre-alps, in the Veneto region. The area includes six municipalities, all of which belong to the province of Verona. The valley, which stretches for 240 km, borders the river Adige to the south, the Parona and Quinzano hills to the east, and reaches the Lessini mountains to the north. Instead, to the West the area is separated from the Adige Valley by Mount Pastello. Much acclaimed since ancient Roman times for wine-growing, and especially for the Amarone wine, the region is also renowned for the famous Rosso Verona marble.
