A cooperative that came into existence before the Republic.
It has a long history, a rich present, and is forward looking.
Generation after generation, there have been many prominent figures involved in the Cooperativa San Pietro in Cariano. It’s a story of confrontation, gatherings, proposals, and evolution and collaborative growth, always with the aim of creating excellent products and always respectful of the unique organoleptic qualities of the particular areas from which they originate: Valpolicella, a blessed land shaped by the hills and valleys between Fumane, Marano and Negrar.
History and the Landscape that is home to it
For generations we have taken the utmost care of the land from which we obtain such a wonderful product. We use some traditional techniques from the past, such as the drying the grapes on racks or mats known as “arele”, combined with the most up-to-date technology.
Vine cultivation is concentrated, in particular, in the more hilly areas, made possible by the traditional stone wall terraces, called “marogne” in the local dialect.
In the three valleys of Negrar, Fumane and Marano, as well as in the flatter areas of San Pietro in Cariano and San’Ambrogio, in addition to the vines olives and cherries are also cultivated. These are used to make high quality products, such as our Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
