The mission of the Cantina Valpolicella Negrar is still now to increase the value of itsmembers activity,producing excellent wines and promoting culture and knowledge of viticulture and oenology.
Today the company advises and coordinate the activity of around200 grape growers, across a total of 500 hectares, all located on the hillsides of the Valpolicella Classico region to the north west of Verona.
Growers are encouraged to cultivate their vines with maximum respect for the naturalenvironment and to safeguard biodiversity. The Cantina and its members have also been able to work together to identify sites suitable for single vineyard wines and to produce special selections and even individual “cru” wines. Experience gained over many years has allowed us to use our winemaking skills t develop a range of various Amarone, Reciotos and Valpolicellas. Historically the winery has also worked hand in hand with growers in other famous viticultural zones near Verona, which allows the Cantina to offer other high quality wines such as Soave, Bianco di Custoza and Bardolino.
Total production of the Cantina is today over 8 millions bottles per year, obtained by more than 60.000 quintals (13 million lb.) grapes. The winery has a total capacity for oak ageing of around 12.000 hl.
