The vineyards owned by the Tessari family cross through the Soave Classico, Valpolicella, and Lessini Durello wine areas. 82 hectares that are the heart of the Ca' Rugate production.
The area of Soave is one of the most important wine areas both on a regional and national level. It was considered the first “typical” production area, determined in 1931 and recognized by Royal Decree in 1936, the first area of the DOC Veneto (1968) and the first ever DOCG of Veneto (with Recioto, in 1998).
The Valpolicella territory extends for 8,000 hectares, from east to west, in the central strip of the Verona province. Of these, about 3,500 are in the “classical” zone and 4,500 are in the D.O.C. zone.
The name “Lessini Durello” is reserved for wines obtained from grapes of the Durella variety, cultivated in specific foothill areas of the Lessini mountains in the provinces of Verona and Vicenza, which extend for about 450 hectares.
