Begali

Begali is a family run winery producing a total of 1,000 cases. The vineyards cover 18 acres in the rolling hills of a commune of Valpolicella, called Cengia. The name Cengia translates to ledges, and is derived from the physical appearance of these Alpine foothills. The vines are planted in a specific area known as Ca’Bianca. The winery was started after World War II when grandfather Giordano began to produce wine from the region’s native grape varieties – Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. It was his son, Lorenzo, together with his wife Adriana – the current owners of the winery – who started to market the wine in 1986. Today, their children Giordano and Tiliana play active roles in the winery.
