Tedeschi is a family-owned winery with almost 4 centuries of history in the wine business, they can trace their origins back the 1630s. Although they have a long history of wine production, Tedeschi have always adopted the most innovative production methods and stand at the forefront of quality Amarone production.
The current owner is Lorenzo Tedeschi who has now been followed into the family business by his three children Antonietta, Sabrina and Riccardo Tedeschi. The winery is located in Pedemonte di Valpolicella and the family makes a range of classic Veronese wines including various types of Valpolicella, Amarone and Ripasso wines.
The family own various vineyards and make a selection of single vineyard wines including the world famous Monte Olmi Amarone vineyard. They have recently invested in the new vineyards sites of La Fabriseria in Pontare and Maternigo Vineyard in the Eastern part of Valpolicella. The name La Fabriseria derives from the name for a local Veronese parish council belonging to the village Catholic Church. Two generations ago Riccardo Tedeschi (not the young one presenting his wines at the dinner!) was a councillor or “Fabbricere”. The councillor would bring a bottle of his wine to meetings to propose a toast at the end of the meeting. Therefore the Tedeschis have named their top wines from this vineyard La Fabriseria in honour of their grandfather.
Tedeschi are one of the ten members founding members of the Famiglia del’Amarone d’Arte (Amarone Families Association), a body set up to promote Amarone wines around the world. The current members of the association are Allegrini, Begali, Brigaldara, Guerrieri Rizzardi, Masi, Musella, Speri, Zenato, Tenuta Sant’Antonio, Tommasi and Venturini.
