Allegrini

The Allegrini family has played an important role in Valpolicella since the 16th century. Giovanni Allegrini led the latest generation, questioning traditional practices and pioneering the quest for quality in the region. Beginning in the early 1960s, he pieced together a super-star team making some of Valpolicella's best wines. Today, his children, Franco, Walter (who passed away in 2003), and Marilisa, continue to guide the winery to the highest international levels, following their father’s vision.

Giovanni was one of the earliest pioneers of quality Valpolicella. In the early eighties he purchased the La Grola hill in Sant'Ambrogio for the sole purpose of producing fine cru wines. The chalky and stony soils of Podere La Grola are at an elevation of 1000 feet above sea level and represent the best vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico region. His dream has become a reality and their wines now come from their own vineyards in the communes of Sant'Ambrogio and Fumane. The estate continues to be a leading force in taking Veneto to the next level with the introduction of Terre di Fumane, a high tech grape drying facility in Fumane. Needless to say, it is the first and the largest of its kind with the capability of drying up to 600 tonnes of grapes (the space is rented to other producers as well).

All of the Allegrini wines come from the 90 hectares of vineyards, which include his Amarones, Reciotos, Valpolicellas, and IGT wines.
