Four generations of the Pieropan family have been making wine in Soave since the 1890s and by the 1930s were the first to make a wine labeled as Soave. Today the estate, which covers 58 hectares on the stony hills of Soave Classico, is known as one of the most acclaimed in all of Italy for their white wines which exclusively feature traditional varieties.

They are most famous for their two single vineyard wines, the “Calvarino” and “La Rocca.”

Calvarino is a Soave classic and has been owned by the family since 1901. It is unoaked and with a high mineral quality coming from the classic volcanic basalt. La Rocca, situated on the only limestone bed in the area, is fermented in 500-liter barrels, and has won seven gold medals at the international Wine Challenge.

Also the family have been producing Valpolicella and Amarone with great success after purchasing a 16-hectare property in the Val d’Illasi,

From the 2015 vintage onwards, all Pieropan wines are certified organic, to respect the local terrain.
