Overview
More
Our family has owned the same land since the beginning of 1800. For many generations we have produced grapes. Our vineyards are located in the heart of the "Valpolicella Classico" region, above Marano di Valpolicella. They are located in the beautiful hillsides of Valpolicella, at an elevation of 450 meters above sea level all with a great southern exposure throughout the growing season.
