Since the early 1900’s generation after generation of the Degani family have dedicated their efforts to growing grapes on this estate. It wasn’t until the 1970’s that they began producing and selling wine locally, and then in 1988 began international exportation. Azienda Agricolo Degani is still a family run operation, all activities from growing and picking of the grapes, to winemaking, bottling and selling are conducted by members of the Degani family.
Degani is the exception rather than the norm in the Valpolicella area – it’s a rarity to find such a boutique family-run operation that still grows, produces and bottles entirely from their own vineyards. With the retirement of Sante Degani in 1980, the younger family members assumed responsibility. Still today, Aldo and Luca Degani handle the winemaking and Zeno Degani is responsible for the vineyards.
