The winery was founded in 1908. Angelo Vantini farmed the land around his family home in the heart of the Valpolicella with robust and elected grapevines.
At the beginning of the last century Angelo Vantini started growing robust and selected vines on the grounds around his manor house. Right in the middle of the classical wine-growing region of Valpolicella he laid the foundation for a family enterprise which even today is still going strong. Already in its third generation this enterprise which is rich in tradition is under the management of a member of the family, Luigi Vantini, the founder’s grandson. Those who want to learn about the world famous Valpolicella wines have come to the right place as this wine-growing estate produces well-known quality wines. Adjoining the rural manor house, but housed underground you can visit the beautiful, recently expanded cellar.
