The vineyards of the El Pendola farm extend for about 4 hectares in the classic Valpolicella, in the Fumane valley. Our company is surrounded by suggestive hills and steps supported by dry stone walls of exquisite workmanship (these walls are called “marogne”). The soil, in the terraces, is calcareous and clayey.
The great Fumane valley is one of the three which make up Valpolicella. It is known for producing much-loved wines.
We’re in an area where cold and mild winds meet, and this creates an ideal microclimate for vineyards and olive groves.
The El Pendola farm offers guided tours and tastings of wines and other products of its own production.
Fumane, which is part of the Valpolicella, is located about 18 kilometres northwest of Verona. Valpolicella is the hilly area which precedes the beginning of the Venetian Pre-Alps.
The classic Valpolicella is made up of 5 municipalities – in addition to Fumane, there are:
Our farm has always cultivated vineyards and olive groves.
We are between Verona, Lake Garda and the Adige, at the foot of the Lessini Mountains, where the crossing of winds, which come in mild from the lake and cold from the mountains, produces a particular microclimate which brings great benefits to vines and olive trees.
