Tommasi viticoltori is located in Pedemonte, a small village in the heart of the “Valpolicella Classico” region, in the northwest part of Verona. From grandfather Giacomo Tommasi’s tiny vineyard, the Tommasi estate has grown steadily over the course of years and today it extends over 195 hectares of hillside vineyards blessed by Mother Nature for its perfect suitability for grapes. The family owns vineyards on the most prestigious hills: La Groletta”, “Conca d’Oro” and “Ca’Florian”, where the grapes for the incomparable Amarone Classico, Ripasso, Valpolicella Classico Superiore and Recioto della Valpolicella wines are cultivated.
