Notable
DescriptionLocated near Verona in the province of Veneto in northeast Italy, Casa Vinicola Bertani is one of the regions most important and influential wine producers. Bertani produces a full spectrum of the classic wines of the Veneto and has enjoyed a reputation for quality from the start. Bertani was founded in 1857 by brothers Gaetano and Giovan Battista Bertani, prosperous wine merchants who believed that quality winemaking held the key to the future. The Bertanis invested their funds in buying some of the finest vineyards in the province and making their own wines. As a result, unlike most other local producers, Vinicola Bertani owns its own vineyards and so is able to oversee the entire winemaking cycle from start to finish. Bertani owns vineyards and cellars in the Valpantena as well as land in the Soave area and in the areas around Lake Garda. The company headquarters are in the original cellars in Grezzana, north-east of Verona, where the historic vineyards are still to be found and where the work of vinification, aging and bottling take place today.
