Every vine has a life story to share
The winery and the vineyard
Tedeschi wines have become synonomous with terroir and Valpolicella around the world as a result of their constant and meticulous labor in the vineyard over the years.
Nothing is ever left to chance. The profound attention to the vineyard includes research to uncover a perfect interaction between the chracteristics of the soil, the microclimate, the sun exposure, the choice of the most appropriate varietals and the cultivation system.
Tedeschi supports research and experimentation as fundamental tools to guarantee quality production. Today the company, which has always respected the environment, is sustainable and certified according to the standards of Biodiversity Friend ed Equalitas.
A great wine – authentic and rich in character – can only emerge from perfect grapes.
As producers of Valpolicella, Amarone and Recioto in Valpolicella for centuries, along with the obligatory autochthonous grapes in our own vineyards we also cultivate a small percentage of lesser known varietals that are nevertheless traditionally used in Valpolicella including Oseleta, Dindarella, Negrara, Rossignola and Forselina.
The Lucchine vineyard is located in Pedemonte in the heart of the Valpolicella classica. The vineyard is planted partly with the Guyot training system and partly with Pergoletta. The terrain is alluvial in origin, rich in pebbles and coarse gravel, and as a result well drained. The production yield is 10,000 kg/hectare. This vineyard provides part of the grapes for fresh and fruity Valpolicella Classico thanks in part to the traditional vinification that the grapes are subjected to. This wine is suitable for every meal.
