Overview of the Wine Bertani was founded in 1857 by brothers Gaetano and Giovan Battista Bertani. Prosperous wine merchants who believed quality winemaking held the key to the future, the Bertanis invested in some of the finest vineyards in the province. They spearheaded a campaign to underscore the potential of Verona's Valpantena Valpolicella wine district. The release of its Secco-Bertani Valpantena brand, still in production 150+ years later, is responsible for putting this DOC on the map. Bertani was also one of the first producers in the region to craft an Amarone. Today, under the guidance of Director of Operations Andrea Lonardi, Bertani makes top-notch wines from its 200+ hectares of vineyards in the Veneto.
Bertani’s impact on Veneto wine making, particularly in Amarone production, is so considerable that ‘Bertani’ and ‘Amarone’ are nearly synonymous. Their 150+ year history is dotted with groundbreaking initiatives and royal accreditation. While respectful of their past, Bertani strives towards innovation, using progressive techniques and equipment allied with extensive experience and a deeply felt respect for tradition to provide wines of uncompromising quality.
