Monte Olmi is the name of this vineyard, located at Pedemonte di Valpolicella in the heart of Valpolicella Classica. The vineyard has a south-western exposure and is 2.5 hectares in size. It is laid out on terraces in order to ensure efficient draining in case of abundant rainfall. At the same time, the depth and the clay structure of the terrain serve to retain water during dry period. Since the early 60s, Renzo Tedeschi had the fortunate idea of vinifying the grapes from the Monte Olmi vineyard separately, thus creating one of the very first single-vineyard wines in Valpolicella. Today Monte Olmi is the symbol of the estate and its territory.
The first documents relating to the Tedeschi estate date back to the 17th century; since the 1630s, the family have worked within the region, shaping and influencing its vineyards and landscape. Today their association with Valpolicella, its terroirs and its leading wines is recognised worldwide. The Tedeschi winery is a premium family-owned and run winery producing renowned classic Veronese wines, including Valpolicella, Amarone, Ripasso and Soave.
