Ilenia Passetto is a fourth-generation member of the family. Her Great Grandfather Antonio founded the winery in 1963 and then passed it down to his son Massimino. After Massimino’s passing his sons, daughter and granddaughter have made it their own. Illenia is the ‘face’ of Azienda Agricolo Venturini travelling world-wine to share and promote their beautiful wines.
The winery is located in the Veneto region in Northeast Italy, 30 minutes from Verona. Venturini produces elegant and sexy Valpolicella wines. Their Amarone is absolutely sensational! It doesn’t get much better than this!!!
Venturini company produces wine using exclusively their own grapes: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara. By making wine with these grapes, the Venturini are able to create their high quality Valpolicella Classic wines certified “Denominazione di Origine Controllata”: Amarone, Recioto, Valpolicella Classico and Valpolicella Superiore and Rosso IGT “Massimino”.
Azienda Agricola Venturini is located in San Floriano, which is a village in part of the town of San Pietro in Cariano (Verona). It was established in 1963 and continues to grow thanks to love, experience and hard work of three generations. Beginning with Grandfather Antonio who passed it onto his son Massimino, who in turn placed it in the hands of his children: Daniele carefully follows the wine making process, Mirco passionately takes care of the vineyards and Giuseppina manages the business sector.
The wine belongs to their traditions, and it has developed with them. It is expression of the everyday life of the past and the present; their wine is their history, and it shows precisely, as well as unexpectedly, the nature of Venturini’s family, belonging to the historical wine area: Valpolicella.
