Velenosi's farm was founded in 1984 by two young entrepreneurs, Angela and Ercole Velenosi, in partnership with Dr. Paul Garbini. Over three decades of experience in wine making and their great passion has allowed them to create a respectable winery where, through the use of advanced equipment, they produce high quality wine. The winery is located in the historic town of Ascoli Piceno, in the Marche region, about 20 km from the Adriatic Sea and 150-200 m above sea level. The winery’s farms cover the hills along the beautiful valley of Tronto River, which, thanks to its clay and fertile soils, has always been dedicated to vine growing.
In addition to the four companies located in Ascoli Piceno, Castorano, Monsampolo and Castel di Lama, there is a vineyard in the area of Ancarano, the province of Teramo (in San Marcello’s zone - Ancona) among the famous “Castelli di Jesi”. The new vineyards reproduce traditional systems: many vines all close one another, ranging from 6,000 to 9,000 per hectare. Among the most important white grape varieties, there are Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Sauvignon Blanc; while among those with red berries there are Merlot, Montepulciano, Syrah and Sangiovese.
Velenosi winery has achieved great success of journalistic criticism, published in the most renowned national and international newspapers, such as Wine Spectator, Robert Parker, Gambero Rosso, Luca Maroni, A.I.S. and many others. This is why they are present throughout the national territory, collaborating with 85 agencies and foreign markets, in 45 European countries and in the rest of the world. The production today is around 2.5 million bottles and expectations do not stop here. The success is due not only to grapes quality, but also to highly specialized personnel: from workers to cellar engineers, up to external consultants, such as Attilio Pagli (winemaker), one of the most famous in Italy and Cesare Ferrari, consultant for many wineries of Franciacorta.
“Wine is for us an art, which is able to let you dream. Wine is our only passion and that makes our wine truly unique".
