The El Pendola company is located in the Fumane area, in the Valpolicella region of Veneto.
For people who want to learn about the production phases of our wines – the winery produces Valpolicella DOC, Recioto and Amarone – we organise tours and tastings in the winery.
The winery tours with wine tasting can be accompanied by small delicacies, typical local products, some from our own production, to be enjoyed in absolute relaxation, in an enchanted atmosphere, in the shade of the cottage.
El Pendola, as well as producing wines, has also been offering catering and accommodation since the 1960s. We have comfortable rooms, elegantly furnished in the typical “country house” style.
The small restaurant is also family-run and offers home cooking
We offer winery tours and tastings, to get to know our wines directly.
In the tours, as well as tasting the wines, you can appreciate typical delicacies.
We want to give everyone the opportunity to savour the nectar of our beloved land.
Our company cultivates vineyards and olive trees in the Fumane valley, at the foot of the Lessini Mountains (250 m above sea level).
Here the intersection of cold winds (from the mountains) and mild winds (from the lake) creates a very peculiar microclimate, which has a positive effect on the vineyards and olive groves.
The company name El Pendola comes from the nickname given by the villagers, in the 19th century, to our great-great-grandfather Pietro Franceschetti, an expert winemaker.
During the winter, Pietro worked the wood to build the “pendole”, the wedges used to keep the barrels in the winery still.
Our great-great-grandfather loved to say that with a pendola you can fix everything “fora che l’osso del col” (except the neck bone).
