Corte Archi

Dedication, enthusiasm, love ... These are the values that the Campagnola family has been passing on to its generations for over a hundred years, sharing the joys and difficulties, in life and among the rows, with a common mission: to cultivate a passion.

The Corte Archi winery is located in the center of the Valpolicella Classica, in the Marano Valley.
Here, surrounded by the green of nature, pampered by the aromas and flavors of wines and typical products, you can enjoy moments of peace and serenity.
The history of the company begins more than a hundred years ago, thanks to a woman, Caterina, wife of Carlo Campagnola. Around 1910 ,widow with ten children, she decides to buy the house, the cellar in Paverno and some surrounding vineyards, thus starting to produce traditional wines.
On the death of the matriarch, the business continues at the hands of the four sons who, however, decide to separate in the sixties. The manor house and some vineyards in Valgatara remain of Guido Carlo, the last son.
The latter, in the seventies, was succeeded by Giampaolo. The business continued in this way according to the canons of the time, until around the nineties Fernando the current owner, still very young, joined his father in running the company.
Thus began a progressive change in management methods both in the cellar, where modern technologies are slowly introduced, and in the vineyard, where new plants are made with a different perspective, lower yields per hectare for a higher quality of the grapes.

Since 1995, Fernando has managed the family business with passion and enthusiasm, always aiming for new goals. With the awareness of having the good fortune to work on a fertile and suitable territory, he directs his efforts so that his children and future generations can equally benefit from an intact and healthy territory.
The qualitative improvement of grapes and wine is only the starting point of a continuous evolution and research, together with an increasing attention to the environment and to the protection of biodiversity, adopting sustainable procedures in cultivation.

Attention to the territory is manifested in adherence to the integrated production system SQNPI (National Quality System for Integrated Production) in association with the Consortium for the Protection of Valpolicella Wines for greater protection of environmental balances and biodiversity.
For years the Corte Archi winery has eliminated chemical herbicides from the vineyards and has minimized the use of synthetic chemicals as well as rationalized fertilization in compliance with ecological, economic and toxicological principles.
