Villa Spinosa - Veneto

cantina villa spinosa

We are in Valpolicella Classica, at the foot of the Masua hill, in Negrar di Valpolicella, in the ancient village of Jago. At Villa Spinosa wine is also a symbol of culture, witness and ambassador of the history and traditions of our community and the entire territory.

Our story begins at the end of the eighteenth century, when the engineer Giacomo Guglielmi started the construction of the Jago cottages around an even older nucleus.

The cottages were followed by the construction of the villa with its gardens and productive land (vines, orchard, arable land for livestock breeding), managed with the sharecropping contract.

It was in the second half of the twentieth century that the direct management of agricultural companies took hold and wine acquired more and more importance, to the point of becoming the dominant product and, especially Amarone, a true symbol of Valpolicella.

Once the great wine crisis was overcome, in the 1980s Valpolicella became a protagonist in the world scene of quality wine. Today's Villa Spinosa was born in those years thanks to an important renovation work on the farmhouses and vineyards, which transformed the historic buildings into rational locations for the various activities of the wine production cycle, from the drying of the grapes to the refinement of wines in the bottle.

Around our nineteenth-century cellar, in a panoramic position in the heart of the village, embellished by the romantic Italian garden and bordered by rural courtyards and owned vineyards, there are the precious vineyards in the Jago, Figari and Costa del Buso crus. Twenty hectares on the hills, between 230 and 423 meters above sea level, in which we grow the Corvina Veronese, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes to produce the classic Valpolicella wines.

We work every day cultivating the strong bond with Valpolicella, with the belief that the development and success of a territory are the result of material but also cultural growth. For this reason, through an Association we also promote cultural projects in environments traditionally dedicated to agricultural activity and production. PalaJago, Tinaia, Granaio Alto, courtyards and Italian garden are transformed into places of meeting and dialogue to host theatrical initiatives, film screenings, photographic exhibitions, literary and musical events open to the public.
