Historical Families is an association founded in June 2009 by ten historical Valpolicella companies. Today it boasts 13 partners, prestigious wineries which for generations have sustained and promoted the territory: Allegrini, Begali, Brigaldara, Guerrieri Rizzardi, Masi, Musella, Speri, Tedeschi, Tenuta Sant’Antonio, Tommasi, Torre D’Orti, Venturini and Zenato.
Historical Families have their roots in historical values and craftsmanship, which it effectively transmits in its efforts to advertise and preserve not only the wines, but also one of the most strategic wine production areas in Italy: the Valpolicella. All the families bring a heritage of knowledge consolidated over time from an unwavering commitment to quality, tradition and innovation as testimony to this great wine. To guarantee high standards of quality, since 2009 they have set precise production regulations, with the aim of honouring the long Valpolicella story.
As a distinctive and identifying sign, Amarone Families place an exclusive holographic label on their Amarone bottles to make them recognizable and give a visible sense of belonging to the Association. The entry of new members has strengthened the interest and prestige of the Association over time, making it the recognized and influential institution it is today, increasingly active in decisions in favour of quality Amarone.
Since 2010 Historical Families have owned the Antica Bottega del Vino in Verona, a restaurant founded in the sixteenth century, a real oenological temple with an extraordinary wine list, a place to fully enjoy gastronomic traditions from Verona and the Veneto region.
