Welcome to Episode 1697 in which host Giulia Stocchetti interviews Valeria Tessari this week on The Next Generation where young Italian wine people 30 and under shake up the wine scene.
More about today’s winery
Giannitessari winery is located in Roncà, province of Verona. Headed by Gianni Tessari, a well-known name in the wine field of Verona, signing since the Eighties successful wines, acknowledged with international awards. A challenge for Gianni and his family; the one of expressing his own stature of winemaker through the confrontation with three terroirs, different and complementary among them: Monti Lessini, Soave and Colli Berici. 35 hectares of vineyards distributed in three DOC (in Roncà for Lessini, Soave and Berici Hills), a modern cellar with about 7,000 meters and 350,000 bottles produced for a total of 16 labels. Great Soave, expression of the volcanic soil; red wines with great balance, from the Berici Hills calcareous terroir, and the sparkling Lessini Durello characterized by the minerality and fineness of the Monti Lessini. Valeria is Gianni’s firsborn, she enters the business after an Economics degree at the University of Verona. She deals with sales and marketing.
