Nicola Ferrari, winemaker, was only 26 years old when he started working at Giuseppe Quintarelli winery, one of the most prestigious Valpolicella wine Company.

He immediately recognized the importance of exercising control over the whole production process, deciding to own  his  own vineyards and to  vinify  his  own grapes. For Nicola that was the only way to  guarantee the quality of  wine and the credibility of the  brand.


Now Nicola is taking over the running of the  winery, supported by his wife Laura.
