Vigneti Villabella is the vine-growing estate within the Cristoforetti-Delibori group. It has its headquarters at Calmasino in the Province of Verona, in the heart of the Bardolino Classico zone, on morainic hillsides overlooking Lake Garda.
Founded over 40 years ago by Walter Delibori and Giorgio Cristoforetti, Vigneti Villabella is a wine- producing company that expresses the full potential of the area, creating unique, genuine wines, and operating in an ethically responsible manner, maintaining a balance between man, the landscape and nature.
Vigneti Villabella produces all of the great classic D.O.C and D.O.C.G. wines of the Verona area, such as Bardolino, Chiaretto, Valpolicella, Ripasso and Amarone, Lugana, Custoza, Soave and Garda. The crus of Villa Cordevigo complete the range.
The real heart of the Vigneti Villabella holdings is the Villa Cordevigo domaine at Cavaion Veronese, a viticultural and natural oasis that is organically farmed. Here we have sought to preserve the genius loci of the countryside that surrounds the Villa Cordevigo Wine Relais, an 18th century Veneto villa which now offers accommodation and hospitality services, as well as promoting the wines of the estate. A further 13 hectares (currently being converted to organic methods) will soon be added to the original 10 that already benefit from this type of cultivation.
