About the Producer

Cantina Sociale Valpolicella was founded at Villa Mosconi, Arbizzano di Negrar, on 23 August 1933.

At the heart of Cantina Valpolicella Negrar are its 230 members, grape-producing families who tend more than 700 hectares of vineyards, mainly in the Valpolicella Classica region.

Research and innovation are the keys to improving the quality of wine at Negrar; on the one hand it is endowed with local values and traditions, and on the other it is carefully gauged to evolve with consumer tastes. In light of this, Cantina Valpolicella Negrar conducts extensive research into wine and grape production from its onsite laboratory and works closely with the University of Verona’s Faculty of Viticulture and Oenology, the Viticulture Research Centre (CRA) in Conegliano Veneto, and the San Floriano Experimental Centre for Wine and Grape Production.
