    Allegrini

    Since the fourteenth century the Allegrini family has been a protagonist in the history of Valpolicella wine making, and since then they have handed down the culture of vines and wine from generation to generation. The company is the result of the foresightedness of Giovanni Allegrini, who with great insight and business sense enriched the family assets with the acquisition of some of the most important hillside vineyards of Valpolicella Classica. Today, his work is continued with dedication and enthusiasm by Marlilisa, marketing manager and Franco, considered to be one of the best wine makers in Italy, together with the help of the next generation: Caterina, Silvia and Francesco.

    Enhancing the Valpolicella.

    This has always been the Allegrini family commitment and all the technical choices made over the years have been taken with this in mind. In the vineyards and in the wine cellar the most important innovations advocated by Franco Allegrini have been: the search to maintain the integrity of the fruit through the use of different types of wood for maturing, revision of the Ripasso technique with the introduction of a second fermentation, a substantial modification of the appassimento method with the creation of the “Terre di Fumane”, a veritable ‘jewel in the crown’ of Valpolicella wine-making. In the vineyards the most significant innovation was the increase in number of plants per hectare by replacing the pergola Trentina with different forms and the experimentation of Corvina grapes, which can appreciated in La Poja, Allegrini’s cult wine. A lot has also been done in the direction of identifying each hillside vineyard: Palazzo della Torre, La Grola and, as already mentioned, La Poja.

    Brigaldara

    The name Brigaldara can be found for the first time in 1260 in a legal document which identies a group of rural buildings surrounded by countryside just outside San Floriano. The Cesari family bought the villain 1929, and in the fties and sixties reconverted it back to the production of oil and wine. In 1979 the family started wine making and the company bought four hectares in the area of Marano, which added to the four hectares inherited from the maternal side of the family. This was followed by the purchase, also by the mother’s family Emelia Arvedi, of Case Vecie an area of 70 hectares, of which now nine hectares are planted with vines. The last purchase was 20 hectares in Marcellise, just east of Verona. The company is run today by Stefano Cesari with the help of his sons.

    It all starts with the vine.

    All the vineyards owned are managed directly and are either pergola or guyot. All the agricultural and vine choices are made based on an extreme respect for the land and the value it gives. Commitment and effort is aimed at achieving a balance between production capacity and optimal grape ripeness, taking into account all the needs of each plant. Amarone, Ripasso and Valpolicella are the three agship wines of the company.

    Guerrieri Rizzardi

    The historic, estate wine producer Guerrieri Rizzardi, was formed in 1913 from the union of two noble Veronese families: Counts Guerrieri, landowners in Bardolino, and Counts Rizzardi, with vineyards in Valpolicella since 1649. In 1914, following the marriage between the two families, the first Guerrieri Rizzardi label was created. Later, in the 1970s, the Soave estate was acquired. In 2011 the new winery, logistics and administrative headquarters of the company was opened in the hills of Bardolino and today the company is managed by Giuseppe, Olimpia and Agostino Rizzardi

    Negrar, the cradle of our cru vineyards.

    In Valpolicella, the vineyards, cellar and grape drying rooms are in Negrar, where vineyards are coltivate with passion and know-how. Here Corvinone and Corvina grapes are planted, together with Rondinella, Barbera, Sangiovese and Merlot. From these vineyards borns the historic cru wines: Calcarole, Clos Roareti, Pojega and Villa Rizzardi. The vineyards are planted in a hilly area at an altitude of 190 to 250 meters with the vines grown in trellises and rows on clay soils with a strong limestone presence. The vineyard of Pojega, planted with trellised vines over 40 years old, is the source of the Amarone Villa Rizzardi; production is limited and bottles are all numbered. The other standard bearer, Amarone Calcarole, comes from vines grown on the terraces of Calcarole hill which enjoys ideal south west sun exposure. The wine is produced only in the best years in a limited quantity of numbered bottles.

    Masi

    The Venetian region, intended as one historical land, made from the encounter of different cultures with one common denominator, has always been at the centre of the philosophy of the Boscaini family, owners of the Masi Winery from the end of the eighteenth century. Sandro Boscaini, President and Managing Director, runs the company with the help of his daughter Alessandra, Sales Manager, and son Raffaele, Marketing Manager and co-ordinator of Masi Technical Group. Also on the management team is the engineer Bruno Boscaini, Production and Plant Manager, with his daughter Anita in charge of Management Systems, Environment and Security, as well as his son Giacomo, who is the Brand Ambassador. The other brother Mario is on the board.

    Everything rotates around the Venetian region. 

    Masi has vineyards and historical properties in the best terroirs in the Venetian region; since 1973 it has collaborated with Conti Serego Alighieri in Valpolicella and, more recently with Bossi Fedrigotti in Trentino, it pays special attention to the selection of vineyards, the safeguarding of grape heritage and cultivation techniques from the Venetian region. Masi has particular expertise in the technique of grape appassimento or the drying of grapes. The Masi Technical Group has worked at length on this process combining this ancient Roman technique with scientific research, in a modern interpretation. This method, called Appaxximento certified Masi Expertise, is used for five Amarone wines: Campolongo di Torbe, Mazzano, Costasera, Riserva di Costasera and Vaio Armarone, as well as three Recioto wines: Mezzanella, Angelorum and Casal dei Ronchi.

  • Musella

    Musella

    The winery is in a rural court dating from the sixteenth century surrounded by meadows and the River Fibbio, in a natural park rich of many species of rare plants and where many species of animal can be found living freely. Since 2009 the company has been certified as Biodynamic by Demeter and the whole family follows a life philosophy and, therefore a productive one, of harmony with nature. The vineyards are situated on three different west facing hills (Monte del Drago, Perlar and Palazzina), with soils composed mainly of red clay and tuff they are oriented in a way that follows the movement of the sun and the course of the winds. Musella is the most southerly located winery in the Valpolicella, meaning it is usually a few degrees warmer than the average territory temperature and therefore the grapes mature earlier. The continued research for elegance is the milestone of Musella wines, the only way to express the territory with so many subtle differences like this natural oasis. Maddalena and her family pursue a single goal: make wine when the conditions are right, when the season was favourable and continue to interpret the beauty of the terroir.

    An oasis of peace.

    The winery is directed by Emilio Pasqua di Bisceglie founder and owner, with the help of his daughter Maddalena and nephew Enrico Raber. Musella is a microcosm where is easy to forget the passing of time. The original courtyard with its beautiful stable block, has been cleverly renovated and transformed into the winery buildings as well as prestigious accommodation.

    Speri

    A historical family in Valpolicella, the Speri company is an authoritative and faithful interpreter of Valpolicella Classica wines, it has become, due to its continuity and strong roots in the territory, a reference point for Italian oenology. The company’s story starts in the first half of the 1800 and today the Speri family has reached the seventh generation, with an extension of 60 hectares of vineyards in prime Valpolicella Classica. The strength of the company has always been and still is, team work, which today involves three generations - Carlo, Alberto, Giampaolo, Giampietro, Chiara, Luca e Giuseppe – in the management of all the phases of production, from the vineyards to the bottle. Following years of sustainable agriculture, in 2015 the company obtained Organic Certification for all its production.

    Tailored Viticulture.

    In respect for its territory’s heritage, the Speri family has always only cultivated autochthonous vines from Valpolicella (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and other indigenous varieties), they make wine exclusively from grapes from their own vineyards and follow the entire production process. They are never seduced by the latest fashions, production is concentrated on five different types of classic wines (exclusively Doc and Docg): the company has maintained their own identity intact, pursuing consistency and integrity, as well as a recognizable style over the years, where elegance and territory are the key words. Again to highlight the peculiarities of each plot, the grapes from each vineyard are vinified separately, creating crus, such as the famous Amarone Classico Vigneto Monte Sant’Urbano, the Valpolicella Classico Superiore Sant’Urbano and the Recioto Classico La Roggia, which get their names from the vineyards of origin.

    Tedeschi

    It was Lorenzo Tedeschi who had the visionary intuition to vinify the grapes from the Monte Olmi vineyards separately, creating one of the first cru di Amarone, the Capitale Monte Olmi, flagship of the winery today. Currently, at the helm of the company are Bruna and Lorenzo’s three sons: Antonietta, Sabrina and Riccardo who manage with passion the 46 hectares of vineyards divided into four areas: La Fabriseria, between Fumane and Sant’Ambrogio, which produces the Amarone of the same name and a Valpolicella Classico Superiore; the renowned Monte Olmi, a terraced vineyard in the heart of Valpolicella Classica; the Lucchine in Pedemonte, which produces a vintage Valpolicella; the Tenuta Maternigo near Mezzane di Sotto, which produces a Valpolicella cru and other wines for the company.

    Know to understand. 

    This is the motto which accompanies the choices the Tedeschi family has made and continues to make in the vineyards. In the past few years the company has focused on the zoning and characterisation of the whole park of vineyards owned, all in hilly positions and planted with Corvina and Corvinone, with the presence of Rondinella and Oseleta too. Fundamental research which sets them apart in Valpolicella. The studies have highlighted different areas for layering, soil, organic matter and draining capacity. The perfect knowledge of soil and plant behaviour in each single vineyard plot has allowed the optimization of agronomic management and the implementation of increased environmental sustainability, a process that begun years ago.

    Tenuta Sant'Antonio

    Armando, Tiziano, Paolo and Massimo Castagnedi are four brothers who all inherited from their father an immense passion: vines. All are involved in the family business, in all aspects of the running of the winery. In 1989 the brothers made the courageous decision to buy Tenuta Monti Garbi, more than 50 cultivated hectares in an extraordinary natural context, between the gentle valleys of Mezzane and Illasi, it is one of the most technological wineries of the Valpolicella.

    Great care for the environment. 

    For years, the principle goal of the Castegnedi family has been to move towards a more natural production process, using all the innovative developments available on the market for both vineyards and cellar. This choice has pushed the winery to produce wines without additives sustaining the Tèlos project in three versions: white, red and Amarone. All this stems from great care of the vines: organic fertilization has been replaced by plant compost, complete grass cover is encouraged and sexual confusion techniques are used for pest control. In the cellar, only selected yeasts obtained from their own grapes are used, temperature monitoring is constant and nitrogen is used at all stages of production as an anti-oxidant. Moreover, all the wines are maintained in suspension by mixers located at the bottom of the stainless steel vats.

    Tommasi

    The strength of a family committed to the pursuit of excellence, united in its private and professional life.This represents the Tommasi family. With its 205 hectares, 100 in the Doc Verona and 105 in the Valpolicella Classica denomination, since 1997 the Tommasi Family has never stopped growing, directing all its investments in acquiring new lands with strong wine growing ties in the Venetian areas.The cru known as  La Groletta, Conca d’Oro, and Cà Florian are just a few examples of this ongoing quest for excellence, foundation for some of the most recognized and prized Amarone wines in the world. In addition to the Valpolicella Classica plots, the family ownership extends its boundaries all over the Lake Garda territory, in particular in the Doc Lugana, in the Doc Soave Classico area but also in 5 other Italian regions. The winery was founded in 1902 by Giacomo Battista Tommasi and is now in the fourth generation.

    Every vineyard deserves a specific project.

    This is how the Tommasi family interprets viticulture.Apart from the historic vineyards, where the training system used is the traditional pergola, the family has been one of the pioneers in Valpolicella area in introducing guyot with a high plant density in order to lower the yield and obtain excellent quality grapes. Ca’ Prunea is the newest hub totally dedicated to the Appassimento (drying process ) which allows a natural air flow and limit the use of technology.In the historic cellar there is still the drying loft with the antique arele trays used to dry the grapes for the production of both cru Cà Florian and De Buris. The Tommasi Amarone is considered by the critics as a very precise and unmistakable style, unique, typical of its terroir, elegant and traditional.

  • Torre D'Orti

    Torre D'Orti

    Thanks to the long experience matured with the Cavalchina winery, which in 1962 was the first to call the local white wine Custoza, the brothers Franco and Luciano Piona were unable to resist the charm of the Valpolicella and bought Torri d’Orti, part of the mount above the village of Marcellise, noted on geographic maps for hundreds of years. Franco and Luciano Piona decided to reconvert this extraordinary area to vines and dedicate it to the production of Valpolicella wines. For them it was a return to their origins, as their grandfather was a selector and bottler of this type of wine.

    Torre d’Orti is an exact point. 

    Here the red ground, typical of the Valpolicella Classica, makes space for the white calcareous cliff. This element, together with the altitude of the vineyards, means the wines produced are particularly adapted to aging, with full structure, low ph and a balance between alcohol, tannins and pulp. Careful attention to the vineyards and to yields allow the Piona family to have a healthier grape with high levels of sugar. In the cellar craftsmanship is combined with innovative technology with a clear goal: to make quality wines.
