Background

Pieropan's estate covers 46 hectares of vineyard which are situated on the stony hills of Soave Classico. The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1890s. Indeed, they were the first producer to bottle a wine with the name Soave on the label in the early 1930s. Nino Pieropan took over from his father in 1970 and was the first producer in Soave to make a single vineyard wine, 'Calvarino', in 1971. While they are known for their whites, the Pieropan family is now making some of the best Valpolicella and Amarone from their 16 hectare property in the Val d’Illasi (to the west of Soave Classico) which they bought in 1999.

Nino's two sons, Andrea and Dario, now work with him running the estate.

My inspirational wine

No single wine or person has inspired us. Our aim has always been to produce wines of character, with a personality and style that can be traced back to our family. Andrea Pieropan.
