Profile of Bertani (Villa Novare)

The Bertani wine company in Valpolicella was founded in the mid-1800s by Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani (brothers) and is indeed owned by the same family today. They were one of the first wine estates in the area to actually bottle their wines, as they concentrated on export early on. In the middle of the 20th century, they acquired the splendid Villa Novare. This handsome 18th-century Baroque villa, once the home of a wealthy silk merchant named Giacomo Fattori, features frescoed ceilings and is a delight for history lovers. The Villa Novare property encompasses the villa, vineyards, manicured gardens, drying lofts for the Amarone and Recioto style wines, and the historic cellar with massive oak wine barrels.

Bertani is one of the leading Amarone producers (the “king” of Veneto wines), and their first vintage of Amarone Bertani was made in 1958. The aristocratic estate wines grace the tables of royals, Bertani was even endorsed by the Italian Royal House (Real Casa) in 1923. History aside, Bertani is an exciting and forward-thinking wine producer using modern technology and innovation to make great wines. They have various product lines including classic Amarone (which won the 3 glass award from Gambero Rosso, the “Valpolicella Valpantena” range which includes their best seller Secco Bertani Valpolicella, Soave wines (delicate whites) and wines of Lake Garda.

We arrange for special private visits here for our guests that include premier wine tastings, as part of our luxury wine tours of the Amarone Winelands. Contact us for more info.
