The winery is best known for its Soave wines, made from the indigenous Garganega grape variety. The estate produces several different styles of Soave, from the entry-level Pieropan Soave Classico, to the single-vineyard Pieropan Calvarino and Pieropan La Rocca.

In addition to Soave, Pieropan also produces red wines made from Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella grapes, under the Valpolicella and Amarone della Valpolicella denominations. The Pieropan Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso is a notable example, with a rich and full-bodied palate, balanced by bright acidity and notes of ripe red fruits, spices, and tobacco.
Overall, Pieropan is a respected producer in the Veneto region and is known for its commitment to quality winemaking and sustainable vineyard practices.
