Rather charming winery producing lovely wines near the fair city of Verona. Four generations of winemaking and...they write poetry:
Wine, nature's creation:
the vineyards, the sun, the rain, the wind, the earth, the stones,
give us grapes,
and from those grapes, time and Man, for once in harmony,
create l'amarone della Valpolicella,
a gift to the soul and a blessing from heaven.
- Renzo Rubinelli
