The company history

The art of wine making of the Campagnola family has reached its fifth generation: a passion that has been handed down from father to son. The Giuseppe Campagnola winery has its heart in Marano di Valpolicella, where it produces and vinifies the grapes, both from suitable land owned and from historical suppliers, still identified in the 1950s by grandfather Luigi, with a view to continuous improvement of the quality of the grapes.

The origins

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.
The enterprising spirit of Carlo and Caterina was inherited by Giuseppe, one of ten children, who together with his brothers in 1926 acquired the “Antica Osteria ai Portoni Borsari” in Verona where the wines made on the family farm were sold.
In the 1940s, with the outbreak of World War II, he moved with his children Giancarlo and Luigi to the current location in Valgatara, where production and selection of classic Verona wines still continues and develops today. Giuseppe bought most of the vineyards from his brothers and continued his course with the goal of creating high quality products. This was how the current company gradually came into being and when the historic cellar was built, where still today the traditional Valpolicella red wines are aged.

1960s – 1990s

The journey through the history of viticulture of this family is over a hundred years long and continues thanks to grandfather Luigi, who with his foresight contributed to the path of rebirth from the post-war period to today and who, with the new cellar built in 2000, marks the passage from a small production company to a large company capable of competing in world markets, welcoming visitors and events in large spaces, under the banner of the great tradition of hospitality of the Campagnola family.

Today
