Further information
Our aim is to give life to a wine which is the purest expression and identity of the terroir, preserving all the quality and the nobility of the soil of the volcanic hill on which our grapes grow. This thought reflects in the company style and in the fundamental daily intervention in the vineyard, making the wine maker the interpreter of nature. The vineyard as the main and essential element, the constant aim to qualitative excellence and the continuous renovation characterizes Domenico Fraccaroli company, headed by Fraccaroli family since three generations.
 In 1958 Domenico Fraccaroli started his business in a “small piece of Paradiso” in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Paradiso di Pocenia, Udine), producing both white aromatics wines and red firm wines. In 2002, this time in Verona, in a small town called Lavagno, his son Tiziano Fraccaroli decided to widen the range of products with the most refined wines of the area, and that is how Grotta del Ninfeo Amarone, Ripasso, Valpolicella Superiore and Recioto was born. The passion for quality and tradition also led us to produce other typical flavours of Veneto region, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Vialone Nano Rice. Currently his sons Domenico and Luca and his daughter Maria are actively contributing to the company and brand success with a great commitment and passion, strengthened by the cultural and working legacies of their grandfather Domenico and father Tiziano. The company, located in the evocative location of Villa Verità Fraccaroli, offers guided tours of the Villa, the winery, and a tasting of 4 wines, accompanied by typical products from the region (deli meats, cheese).
