The Begali Estate is situated in the charming Valpolicella area, between Pedemonte and the hills of Castelrotto,near Verona and Garda lake. Since the beginning of the 20th century the Begali has passed from the tradition and love of the land and its work from father to son. Our vineyards (12 hectares) are set amongst cherry orchards covering hills and slopes in a small hamlet called Cengia. This name comes from the name of the rocks dotted around on the facing hill. This is why the wines we produce are so rich in aromas and typical flavours of the fertile land and reflect the harmony and the singular characteristics of this area. We are very determined and take great care in our winemaking process, from the vineyard to the cellar. This promotes our on going efforts to improve quality while respecting tradition.
We use a blend of the most important grapes of Valpolicella: Corvina (and Corvinone), Rondinella and other autochthonous varieties.
