Award winning Amarone Producer Vineyard

Illasi is located in Valpolicella, in the oldest vine-growing area of Italy, east of Verona. This particularly picturesque town is unique for its wine production: its ancient geological conformation, of a morainal and stony composition, enables excellent drainage of rainfall, while its southern exposure ensures excellent solar irradiation. The well-balanced difference in day and night-time temperatures, and the air currents coming down through the Lessinian mountains are beneficial for the cultivation of the vine as well as for the partial drying of the grapes. This winery has been cultivating traditional grapes in a natural way in this very distinctive terroir since 1924, and with organic certification for over 20 years. The original wine-making cellar, built of stone under the 19th-century villa, has been replaced by a new winery built in 2002. The structure consists of three floors below ground, connected to the previous cellar by a tunnel, and built in order to add approximately 3000m2 of additional space to the previous facilities with practically zero environmental impact. Further space was added in the form of a new facility for appassimento (the partial drying of the grapes), a workshop, and storage for agricultural machinery. The lowest floor in the winery is at 20 metres below ground level.Above the top floor of the winery, there is the vineyard, cultivated to help provide appropriate thermal insulation: due to the depth in the subsoil, good temperature insulation is ensured, as well as protection from outside noise and vibrations, guaranteeing ideal conditions for aging.
