In the 1980s, the Cecilia Beretta began as an agricultural farm and site for studies and experiments. It is the pride of the Pasqua family. It is named for the beautiful Villa Beretta, a former property owned by Count Giuseppe Beretta, regent of Verona, agriculturalist and country poet. Count Beretta built the villa in Mizole, west of Valpolicella, in the 17th Century.
The Pasqua family purchased the vineyards Mizzole, Mattaranetta and San Felice at the end of the 1980s. These vineyards were given special attention, especially after Pasqua wines had secured its status on the international market and was thus able to invest important resources in targeted quality improvement.
The primary goal of the Cecilia Beretta winery is to carve out the power and personality of the traditional Valpolicella and Soave wines and is the result of a centuries-old, unique wine growing culture and the history of the land paired with innovation, in order to emphasise the typical wine characteristics and qualities of the wine growing region.
The vineyards are spread over the hills of the Valpolicella region on volcanic soil of Soave. 54 hectares belong to the family, and another 35 have been contracted and are cultivated solely for the winery.
The winery is managed by the sisters Cecilia and Carlotta Pasqua and produces 200 000 bottles per year – a limited selection of first-class wines. The Cecilia Beretta winery is an independent operation and is not affiliated with the production of the Pasqua Vigneti e Cantine winery.
