Tech Details

The grapes are grown on the beautiful slopes of the Valpolicella Classico, one of the most prestigious wine areas of Northern Italy. This area is located Northwest of the elegant Roman town of Verona (in the Western corner of Veneto).

The valpolicella region has mostly a mild-to-cool continental climate that is influenced by its proximity to two sizable bodies of water: Lake Garda to the West and the Adriatic Sea to the Southeast.
