More and more often, the wine territories and their protagonists, the producers, as well as with tastings and visits to the company to welcome fans of the world, choose the language of cinema to tell their stories. For example, the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato Unesco heritage sites have recently done so with “Vite”, by the director Tiziano Gaia. And now the Historic Families are ready to do it, the association that brings together 13 of the most important names in Valpolicella and Amarone, namely Allegrini, Begali, Brigaldara, Guerrieri Rizzardi, Masi, Musella, Speri, Tedeschi, Tenuta Sant’Antonio, Tommasi, Torre d’Orti, Venturini and Zenato. A group of producers and companies all family-run (and owners of the Antica Bottega del Vino, directed by Luca Nicolis, one of the “temples” of good drinking worldwide), which have contributed decisively to making Valpolicella one of the most prestigious territories in Italy and Amarone one of the most successful wines in the world (which altogether control 800 hectares of vineyards for the production of Amarone, sell 2.3 million bottles, 15% of the sales of the great Venetian red , for a total turnover of 81 million euros, 23% of the total sales of Amarone, of which 70% for exports). The docufilm, which is called “Historical Families – A tale about Amarone”, was shot by the young director Michael Gasparini in the first phase of the pandemic, to tell the “human” strength of this association, now led by Alberto Zenato, who wanted a choral project supported by the strong desire to tell and share the passion for their work and their territory. The stage presentation on September 9, in Verona (Cinema Teatro Rivoli, Piazza Bra 10) and then will be visible on the main communication channels of all Families.
