Corte Lonardi is a small winery located in Marano, in the “green heart” of Valpolicella. Though the farm is quite young, its roots are immersed in the ancient rural and gastronomic history of the area. The current owner of the winery is Silvia Lonardi, the daughter of its founder Giuseppe Lonardi who, growing up between the fields and the tables of the family owned tavern, was able to combine his passion for wine and cuisine.
Silvia’s great-grandfather Giuseppe, nicknamed “il Bepi”, was the first to transform his love for good food and wine into a business by becoming a restaurateur, and her grandfather Aldo followed in his footsteps. Sharing this passion with his family, in the early 80s Giuseppe began producing wine supported in this endeavor by his friend, the winemaker Roberto Ferrarini. In our days this farm produces high-quality wines which belong to the tradition of the Valpolicella region and endeavors to identify and enhance novel undiscovered values which lay in the soil of Marano hills, thanks to the fresh creative energy brought by the young daughter Silvia.
