Our family boast of an almost 4-century long history in the wine business and has always believed in the richness of Valpolicella wine production. We have reinterpreted it in a modern key and have adopted the most innovative production methods.
We respect and promote the area by producing powerful, elegant, typical wines that are rich in character. Thanks to the colour, the aroma and the taste of our wines, you will discover the strong character and love of the people who produced them, the gentle hills where grapes are grow and the rich, complex cultural heritage and traditions that have been treasured in Valpolicella for centuries.
Attention to tradition, focus on innovation and knowledge of the local territory are the key elements that make up the identity of our estate. Our identity is based on our territory. This is the starting point to constantly improve our production quality standards. In this prospective, we have worked and are still working to better realize anddevelop its potential by respecting its aptitudes and its pace.
We need commitment and patience to make a great wine like Amarone. Our patience has always been matched by our passion for our region, and especially Valpolicella. Our commitment is synonymous with readiness to act and take care as well asattention to details and aptitudes.
These values have become a style, the Tedeschis’ style, which is true to the territory and local varieties. This style can best express the potential of every single harvest so that even weather conditions become an integral part of our wine.
This style was born in the early Sixties when Lorenzo Tedeschi showed remarkable insight and vinified the grapes from the Monte Olmi vineyard separately, thus creating one of the very first single-vineyard wine of Valpolicella, a wine that has become theflagship of our estate.
“We are convinced that each of our wines has to be born out of our territory and history. The distinctive character of our wines is the result of 400 years of intense passion and research in our vineyards in Valpolicella”.
The Tedeschis’ wine cellar is situated at the centre of Pedemonte di Valpolicella. The recently renovated fermentation facilities have a series of horizontal fermenting vats which allow a perfect extraction of compounds from the skins by means of a suitable programme of pumpovers and movements of the solid mass. The winery also has vertical fermenting vats where it is possible to break the cap and push it under the surface by means of a plunging tool. All vats are temperature controlled. The ageing cellar houses some Slavonian oak barrels with a capacity varying from 1,000 to 5,000 litres.
The new state-of-the-art drying loft is located close to the wine cellar. The drying loft too is equipped with a computer system to control temperature and humidity. The building has a capacity up to 450,000 kg of grapes.
