Villa Della Torre AllegriniVilla della Torre is a historical jewel of sixteenth century Italian architecture. Its owes its construction, completed around 1560, to Giulio della Torre, a learned intellectual and humanist, involved in significant social, political and religious activities. There are several hypotheses regarding the architectural authorship of the Villa, which even today the locals refer to as “el palasso” (the Palace): contributors to the architectural project included Giulio Romano, the author of Palazzo Te in Mantova during the rule of the Gonzaga dynasty, Michele Sanmicheli, Bartolomeo Ridolfi and Giulio Della Torre himself. His artistic versatility, taste and refined sense of style were well known and appreciated in intellectual circles during that period. The unique character of the villa derives from its conception: it was not merely a country villa built in a utilitarian fashion to serve the agricultural activities of the estate, but also a place designed for the peace and tranquility of the body and soul according to the canons of Latin writers so important in the Italian humanist tradition. While the Villa’s artistic curators concur in attributing the layout of Palazzo della Torre to the precepts of Vitruvius and Pliny The Younger, art historians have more recently also assigned a role to biblical themes, in the sense of a structural progression from the bottom (Hell) towards the top (Heaven), a blend of secular and sacred elements consistent with the profile of the Della Torre family, who balanced their humanist interests with strong ties to the Church. Some members of the family were influential prelates, highly visible in the Verona society of the time.

Le RiveOur purpose is giving our contribution to the diffusion of the immense landscape value in this territory, where quietness and serenity characterize a beautiful natural environment, rich in water, and where vine growing represents the fundamental resource of the community. This scenery embracing wine and culture has been appreciated for thousand years and has seen the presence of illustrious names such as Ernest Hemingway and Goffredo Parise. The evolution of this territory is indissolubly connected with the pedological variety originated by River Piave, which, along the centuries has been tracing the ground stratigraphy in Marca Trevigiana. The territory offers a great pedological variety, from the rocky hills of Valdobbiadene, to the medium-mixture soils in the Negrisia plain, due to the presence of alluvial silts rich in magnesium and Dolomite rocks calcium. Here different varieties of grapes are produced, from the fresh and fruity Prosecco to the full-bodied Raboso Piave, which finds in this land its ideal habitat. The Raboso is an unique and autochthonous vine characterizing for more than 600 years winegrowing in Marca Trevigiana and our cellar can be considered a milestone in this tradition. The Prosecco itself, from the hard and narrow hills in Treviso region, finds here the ideal condition to the expression of its typical characteristics. The winding flowing River Piave, surrounded by the greenery of mountains, of the hills and of the plain, delimitates the contours of our vineyards, taking care of the vine and of its needs, giving to the culture all it needs to exalt the character of grapes. Also in the vineyards in Friuli the history of the cellar remains connected with water flowing, torrent Torre laps the vineyards growing along its right shore, in the town of Pradamano and Pavia di Udine, in the surroundings of Udine.

Tenute Ugolini - Vignaioli in ValpolicellaThe grounds and vineyards have been part of the Ugolini family since the days of my grandfather. (This is a story known by many of the local people here in Valpolicella. The story tells of a man whose first action every morning was to look out of the window, to check the weather and the countryside.) Our family is made up of three brothers: (myself) Giambattista, Davide and Tiziano. When my father died, about 20 years ago, being the eldest, I decided to take the vineyards into my own hands. It was love at first sight for me, and all of us have always believed in grape cultivation at a high standard, so we invested in the purchase of south-facing vineyards. To make the dream come true, of producing wine from our own grapes, I worked for an important Italian company, far away from home, knowing that one day I would return and work with our vineyards in Fumane. About 10 years ago, I realised that it wasn’t the right time to limit ourselves and sell all the grapes that were grown in our vineyards, but to start winemaking, bottling it and putting our family name to it. This conversion is still taking place today by improving our winemaking assets. For many years, our main focus was an agricultural point of view - the grapevines in the hills, most of the vines were replanted. We also consider the beauty of the landscape, there are 14 kms of small walls that are continually maintained and taken care of which is very laborious. This sacrifice however, helps to preserve this particular characteristic of Valpolicella. We have successfully just finished another project: The purchase of Corte Quaranta – an antique house with a panoramic courtyard of the rural area below the hills of San Michele, near our winery. Now it is ‘Ugolini’ house, the house of our wine. A stunning place where the door is always open to welcome visitors...... We are waiting for you, come and visit us!
