Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine is an historic winery that produces high quality Veneto and Italian wines and one of the main players in the Italian and international wine market. A family passion. A century long history.
The history of Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine begins in 1925, when the first generation of the Pasqua brothers came to Verona and established a new business devoted to the trade of wines from their homeland, Apulia. From wine trade and retail, they decided to become a real winery. In a few years, with the acquisition of new vineyards in the Verona area, the company progressively gained importance and visibility. During the 60s, the second generation of the family entered the business, bringing about an opening to export and an orientation toward quality. The constitution of Cecilia Beretta in the 80s, the agricultural estate and innovative research centre for vines, grafting techniques and vineyards, is the symbol of the family’s constant quest for excellence.
In the mid 2000’s the company made a huge investment, testifying to the deep bond connecting the company and the family with the territory, with the creation of a new headquarters and manufacturing plant in San Felice, in the heart of the family vineyards. When the third generation, composed by Riccardo, Alessandro, Cecilia and Giovanni, started to lead the company, the international market orientation boosted to a peak in 2009, with the foundation of Pasqua Usa LLC in New York. The company now sells wines in 50 countries worldwide.
Montevegro, the vineyard that gives life to the 'Mai dire Mai' Valpolicella and Amarone, has characteristics that are virtually perfect for the generation of high quality wines. A hill at 350 meters a.s.l. with exposure on all sides, it faces the Val d'Illasi and the Val di Mezzane with the Lessini range at its back and soil that is basaltic and calcareous in origin to guarantee an optimal mineral content.
