Spread out over 240 km. in the western part of Veneto Italy, between Verona and Lake Garda, lying against the mountains of Lessina and bordering the river Adige. Valpolicella has a long tradition where the land has been dedicated to the production of wine. In this zone “ Valpolicella Classica “ the production of high quality wines is due to the good hillside position for the sun, to a soil that is primarily calcareous and to a temperate and mild climate.
Valpolicella was created as the mountains descend into the plains and created five valleys which resemble a extended hand with the fingers representing each valley. There are some characteristics that are given to the native vines, that are similar but at the same time very different due to very small micro-climate variations and soil conditions within each valley.
