Villa Leone Vineyard + Wine Feature

Villa Leone

Valpolicello, Italy

Villa Leone, a winery started in 1907, is on its fifth generation of family winemaking. This passion for the art of wine-making goes back to Carlo Campagnola, who was involved at an early age in the wine trade, followed by his wife Caterina Zardini who, after the untimely death of her husband, courageously continued the business and in 1907 won the medal for the best "Vino Reccioto" at the Wine Exhibition in Verona.
