About Allegrini Estate

The Allegrini family estate covers 100 hectares of vineyard in the heart of Valpolicella Classico. Though they have been growing grapes here for several centuries, Giovanni Allegrini was the first to start bottling wines from the family’s vineyards. When he died in 1983, he passed on to his three children – Walter, Marilisa and Franco – a passion for and a commitment to quality wine. They worked together to build on Giovanni’s quality ethos until Walter’s death in July 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and the winemaking, while Marilisa takes charge of sales and marketing.
