Tenute Falezza- Division of the WInery
Tenute Falezza is a large winery that is divided into three parts, Estate of San Felice (six hectares), Estate of Marcellise (three hectares), and Estate of Mezzane (three hectares). These jewels of Tenute Falezza are located in the Veneto region of Italy, where tradition, creativity, quality, and passion are handed down from one generation to another. Today, the Falezza family delivers the indigenous wines of DOC Valpolicella labels.
The Winery Building
The winery building, Tenute Falezza, was established in 1974 by Mr. Luigi. With great dedication and passion for winemaking, the owners expanded the vineyard zone to 12 hectares in the charming region of San Felice Extra in Verona. Today, here precious black berried grapes are grown for exquisite wine production in all the three estates of Tenute Falezza. The winery is bordered by Adige River, dotted by the panoramic hills of Parona and Quinzano, which ensure a perfect microclimate for the production of a wide variety of grapes.
Their Vineyard and Cellar
In the vineyards, the Falezza family cultivates Corvina, Recioto, Riserva, and Corvinone, along with rare Oseletta and Rondinella. In some parts, a delicious white type, known as Garganega type, is grown using traditional and innovative methods of grape farming. The owners of the estate believe in manual harvesting, and only the best berries are moved to the cellar for further processing, such as pressing, fermentation, refining, and more.
Some of the best wine categories of the estate are top-class red, dessert, and white wines, all made under DOC and IGT statuses.
The cellar of TenuteFalezza has also undergone new changes. It features an advanced drying room, equipped with automated devices. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel containers, outfitted with temperature-controlled systems, followed by ageing in French oak wooden barrels.
