Tommasi has always been a standard bearer of the Amarone appellation, and one of the most important quality producers in the Veneto. The family-run estate was founded in 1902 by Giacomo Tommasi in the village of Pedemonte, which lies in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico region that extends north-west of Verona. The family owns 284 acres in Valpolicella Classico, making them the single largest land owners in the area. Over the years they have steadily expanded their holdings in other areas of the Veneto and other regions, and now own a total of 1,400 acres under vine between the Veneto, Tuscany, Puglia, Basilicata and Oltrepo Pavese. As has been the case since the winery?s establishment, the family works only with grapes they grow, an important quality decision and reflection of their deep connection to the Valpolicella soil.
