The Allegrini family has played a leading role in the history of Fumane and Valpolicella Classica since the sixteenth century and has handed down the culture of the vine and wine ever since. The corporate legacy of Giovanni Allegrini, the driving force behind the rebirth of the Valpolicella area, passed into the hands of the new generations: his son and daughter, Walter, Franco and Marilisa. Today the tradition continues with the seventh generation represented by Silvia, Walter’s daughter and Francesco, Franco’s daughter, with Marilisa they lead the Allegrini winery.

The highest expression of the winery, holding on tight to family roots while keeping a firm focus on innovation and respect for the environment. The combination of exceptional-quality raw materials and winemaking tradition is the key to the Allegrini brand’s success.

Allegrini’s properties extend for around 150 hectares in the cradle of the Valpolicella Classica. The unique vineyards yield prestigious wines, stemming from the company’s winemaking style and its exclusively estate-grown grapes. The love they feel for their land has driven the Allegrini Family to enhance the potential of the Valpolicella area and its winemaking tradition. The decisions taken, informed with great far-sightedness, have seen Allegrini become one of the leading wine producers in Italy, and it is precisely in Valpolicella that the new generation of producers looks to Allegrini wines as an essential benchmark.
