A BRIEF PROFILEThe Allegrini Family has been producing wine for over four hundred years. Through its constant commitment to reinforcing and promoting agricultural traditions, it has made a significant contribution to the development of the Valpolicella area, helping it to become the cradle of great red wines.
Today Allegrini today is a consolidated group of Companies and one of the most dynamic and well-known wine producers in Italy and abroad. Its roots lie in Fumane di Valpolicella where, in 1854, the Azienda Agricola was founded and headed, over subsequent decades, by consecutive generations of the Allegrini Family.
In the Valpolicella Classico area, the Allegrini Estate extends for some 100 hectares (247 acres); these parcels are the cradle of highly prestigious cru wines such as La Grola, Palazzo della Torre and La Poja and the birthplace of Amarone, a star in the constellation of great Italian red wines.
Corte Giara is the brand that was created in 1989 in response to the need to expand the Company’s range of products, thereby also introducing international varietals known to the public at large. This project has given rise to a line of young wines that can be enjoyed in various contexts and are more easily-approachable for consumers.
