Tradition, commitment and time-honored relationships, forged over almost two centuries of craftsmanship, are the pillars of success at Farina Wines. Located in the heart of Valpolicella Classica, the original historic region of Amarone and Ripasso winemaking in the Veneto, Farina is owned by Claudio and Elena Farina, two cousins who represent the third generation of this winemaking family, with the guidance of Sandro, Claudio's father. The Farina winery is located in San Pietro in Cariano the heart of Valpolicella Classica, the historical, original Valpolicella. Valpolicella Classica is made up of 5 villages: San Pietro in Cariano, Sant'Ambrogio, Fumane, Negrar and Marano. The wines are made from grapes grown on 45 hectares of selected vineyards of Valpolicella Classica, 10 of which belong to the Farina family and 35 that belong to historic, trusted "contributors" who have worked with Farina for many years and are dedicated to growing only the best quality grapes. Farina has two historic "Cru" vineyard sites: Montefante and Montecorna. The Montefante vineyard (300m ASL) with its tuffaceous, clayey and calcareous soil and excellent hilly exposure, is an ideal site for the Corvina grape used to make Farina's Amarone Montefante. The other cru is the Montecorna vineyard, located on Mount Masua, characterized by an extraordinary calcareous soil, ideal for the production of the grapes dedicated to Farina's Valpolicella Ripasso Montecorna.
