About Piccoli Daniela
The Piccoli winery was founded as a meeting point between art and nature, with the philosophy of telling the story of the hilly territory it belongs to, as an interpretation and expression of Valpolicella. The love and respect of viticulture and the great passion for nature invested in the Piccoli family since the early 2000s and took them to the production of high-quality grapes.
Piccoli is a relatively new wine producer in Valpolicella. The company is managed by three women: the mother, who owns the company and the land, and her two daughters, one in charge of sales and marketing and the other one running the winemaking.
The women at Piccoli use roses as a visual theme on their bottles. The labels are quite artistic and represent the style of each wine. Piccoli chose the rose as a symbol because of its beauty and sensitivity.
They practice sustainable viticulture, in harmony with nature. Roses are very dear to Italian grape growers for more practical reasons too: Roses act as a kind of vineyard calendar, growing and flowering in sync with the vines. They are also ‘canaries’ that suffer from certain diseases or pests before the vines.
The winery offers a fascinating tour, with a barrel room immersed in the soft atmosphere in the noble aromas of wood and a hall dedicated to wine tasting.
