In the early 20th century, Gaetano Accordini purchased five acres of vineyards and over the generations the humble origins of this estate have grown to become one of the most prominent wineries in the region. The Accordini family has expanded their vineyards considerably since the early days, always maintaining an interest in cultivating grapes from Valpolicella mountain, and their now 4 hectare estate is located in Negrar. The vineyards host well-balanced soil and ideal southern-east exposure. A new vineyard in the hills of Fumane is currently being cultivated with approximately 6 hectares of vines. This small, friendly winery includes a welcoming “taverna” to provide visitors with an enjoyable setting for a proper visit and tasting.

Gaetano’s granddaughter, Daniele, took the winery to new heights and her studies in Oenology Scienes at the school of Conegliano Veneto enabled her to pursue her determination to enhance the quality of the process and outcome, from implementing new viticulture practices to modernizing the winemaking process, becoming known for their artisan approach, which includes traditional techniques, such as Ripasso, as well as their renowned practice of grape withering. The grape withering is applied to the Corvine, Rondinelle and Corvinone varietals, grafted by Stefano, using only grapes of the highest quality. The family keeps up to date with the latest in technological innovation, and the equipment includes stainless steel and refining in small barrels. The refinement process is undertaken with meticulous care, and finding the right balance throughout the wine evolution is critical for the renowned outcomes of each offering.
