The Azienda Nicolis Angelo & Figli is located in S. Pietro in Cariano, in the heart of the "classic" zone. The art of viticulture is a richness that the Nicolis family has passed on for generations with the cultivation of the family owned property: 90 hectars, from which 42 are vineyards.
From grapevines located in the lower hills, the soils are medium graded, profound, and fertile, classic vintage wines are produced, while wines destined for aging like the prized Amarone and Recioto are produced from grapevines grown in terraced hills.
Having always transformed part of the wine production for consumption by the family and various locals, it was only in 1951 that Angelo together with his wife Natalia, began to form a true winery with adequate structures in order to satisfy a wider market. Their great passion for the production of fine wines was given a new impulse with the entrance of the sons in its activities, who having completed studies in enology and business management, personally conduct most of the activities of the winery.
The present winery produces high quality wines, due to the enterprising strength and intuition of Angelo Nicolis, followed by his wife, and their children, who knew how to share their love for the land and traditions characteristic of the families in Valpolicella.
Today, the winery is headed by three brothers. Giancarlo takes accurate care of the grapevines, thus guaranteeing the quality of the fruit that is produced. Giuseppe, as an enologist, follows the process of vinification. Massimo takes care of the German speaking market. Their mother Natalia continues to help in the family business; due to her enterprising capacities and experience, she gives daily support to the continuation of the winery. Visits and Wine tastings are organized on request.
