In Valpantena-Valpoliocela, north of Verona, Vittorio Sancassani, in love with his homeland, in the early 1900's devoted himself passionately to the cultivation and processing of vineyards of one of the first winery in this area. His son Sergio, during the seventies, was already dedicating the management of olive groves and agricultural land. In 2000 Sancassani Family had the opportunity work the land. Luciano Sancassani, with the help of two friends (Vittorio cares of the vineyards and Riccardo for the management of the winery) realized his dream of creating Antiche Terre. Together they currently operate 25 hectares (62 acres) of vineyards in the hills of Valpolicella-Valpantena. This special Amarone is therefore Estate Bottled, and Estate grown in the traditional method. Winery Notes

The history of the winery Antiche Terre Venete dates back to the early 1900s with Vittorio Sancassasi cultivating vineyards and olive trees on his land. When passion and work come together, they create unique life stories, like the one of Vittorio: A love for his land so strong that he devoted all energy cultivating the fields, vineyards and olive trees in Valpantena. The same vocation for wine passing from generation to generation, through his son Sergio to his nephew Luciano who, after an eclectic path of life, came back from China after having made vast commercial experience, and decided to follow the subtle calling of his homeland and its traditions. In these years Luciano's meeting with the Degani family forms the idea of uniting skills and passion under one name. The synergy between the enthusiasm of Riccardo Degani and the experience and knowledge of Luciano Sancassani have lit the spark of a winery that makes wine more than a business - a passion of life: Antiche Terre Venete.
