    Best wine tasting experience!
    We looooooved the wine tasting in this amazing place! We did not make a reservation but were welcomed by Nikki in such a friendly way. She explained us all about the winery, grapes and villla in perfect English. She actually knew our wineshop in our hometown that sells their wine, which means we can enjoy the amazing wines again (when the once purchased are finished). The tastings takes place with the best view and perfect storytelling. We recommend it to everyone who loves wine and wants a personal experience. You will regret it when you don’t visit this place!

    Wonderful Winery in the heart of Valpolicella
    Visited Ugolini winery recently and enjoyed the lovely hospitality of Maria Giuditta who is the granddaughter of one of the key persons instrumental in developing the Ugolini winery. With an approach dedicated to organic techniques this visit allowed us to appreciate the remarkable efforts made to produce excellent wines. The indigenous grapes of Valpolicella are especially suited to the local terroir. The skill of the winemaker in blending the various grapes is what creates that magic in a bottle of Ugolini wine. Highlighted during the tour was the fascinating process of drying the grapes for the production of Amarone and Recioto. Ingeniously the common laborers of years ago took the leftover pomice from making Amarone and used it to improve the basic Valpolicella creating another great wine style Ripasso. We tasted the classic lineup including Valpolicella, Superiore, Ripasso, Recioto and Amarone. My favorite was the Ripasso with it's earthy, leathery medium to full bodied taste which begins to approach the weight and complexity of Amarone. However at the 20 Euros price point the Ripasso is a great value. The placemat used for the tasting is a nice souvenir. It is an artist's rendition of the Fumane valley depicting the Ugolini vineyards. Maria Giuditta could not have been nicer and she sang a beautiful Venetian song for my wife's birthday. 15 minutes away in San Giorgio Di Valpolicella we enjoyed a gorgeous panoramic sunset view of Lake Garda. Another great tip from Maria!

    Welcoming staff, beautiful setting, incredible wine
    Wow, I highly recommend visiting Ugolini if you're looking for a winery in the Veneto. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking, including the lovely main house, vino garden for outdoor tastings, and the vast vineyards below. The staff was so kind, knowledgable and generous. We enjoyed a tasting of several Valpolicella wines and had delicious snacks to accompany - all for 40€! What a spectacular day we had there.

Just a short drive out of Verona you will find Valpolicella and the Ugolini Winery. This magical place has Beautiful vineyards & a lovely family run business. The owners and vines have roots in this soil. The main building housing the winery is an old fort built by the Austrians.
The wine is fabulous, the owners friendly, good humored & knowledgeable. A special
Treat is if Maria the granddaughter of the man that planted these roots is your tour guide and you get her to sing Italian opera.
She has enough talent to be singing at La Scala! This was a special part of our trip.
They will also ship wine to the states for you to enjoy at home. 🍷🍷🍷

We did an amazing wine tasting with the owner’s niece. She was soooo helpful, her English was amazing! The wine was delicious and we also got bread, cheese, grape jam and dessert with our sweet wine! This was all for 30€. We would highly recommend going! We went via bus from Verona, the 103 took us to the bottom of the town and the walk was 10/15mins - a beautiful walk through vineyards. Our favourite afternoon in Verona!

We opted for the tasting and tour Valle Alta to give us an introduction to the wines of the Valpolicella. We had been trying Valpolicella in the US before our trip to Italy but I have to say what we had sampled in the US pales in comparison to the Ugolini wines. When you take the tour and you see the passion they put into their wines, of course they are going to be exceptional. We had a full range of samples, from the Valpolicella to the Amarone. which was outstanding. The first three wines we sampled on their beautiful terrace in front of the Villa with a view down the valley. Gorgeous sunny day drinking their wines on their beautiful estate — we just didn't want to leave. Then the Amazon which we sampled in the Valle Alta which is their highest vineyard. They took us up to the vineyard in a jeep so no climbing vineyard roads. It was harvest time and we got to see the care they take in harvesting the perfect grapes. A very memorable experience — thank you Davide.
Couple of tips — the tour of the villa was very nice and worth some time, they will ship wine back for you and gps directions are a little dicey. Just take SP 33 from the really big circle north toward Fumane and keep looking on your left of the road for the Ugolini sign on a big barrel. Good luck. It's worth the trip.

The of Ugolini wines are truly exceptional but the experience you get when you visit the vineyard is like no other. We toured the estate and home and nothing disappointed. This is an experience you will never forget.

We spent the morning at Ugolini and were met by Arianna for our tour which I had reserved by email. She was so pleasant and knowledgeable and took us down to the cellar where we could see the wine barrels and hear about the wine making process. We were able to walk in the vineyard a little bit and she explained the way they cultivate the vines. After this we returned to the Villa where we were shown the property and began our tasting of 5 wines with salami and cheese. It was just lovely. We tasted Valpolicella Classico, Valpolicella Classico Superiore, Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto. We had descriptions of each wine and ample time to ask questions during the tasting. It was a gorgeous winery with attention paid to every detail. The views are so beautiful and the wine top notch. Truly magnificent and well worth your time. Additionally, wine shipment back to the States was easy and relatively inexpensive.

Arianna was lovely. She was very willing to answer any questions we had and was a great resource!

We will be back for sure!

There are many vineyards to choose from, but this one is one of the best. Went on sister trip and had a very wonderful tour. VERY CLEAN winery! If looking for authentic, Italian vineyard experience, would recommend stop here.

There is nothing that enchants visitors to Italy more than the Italian passion for those things that are superb in this country of excellencies. Valpolicella needs no introduction to wine lovers, but to really feel what this versatile red is made of, a trip to the area just east of Lake Garda is a must. If there is anyone who will tell you exactly why Valpolicella is such a great wine producing area, it is Giambattista Ugolini, the eldest of three brothers who are natives to Fumane, one of the three areas where Valpolicella, Amarone, and Recioto are produced.
We spent one of the most intriguing days of our trip visiting the Ugolini estate and learning from Giambattista first hand about the vineyards, the struggles to keep crops organic (and a ten year break in production!), his work with the University of Verona to study local soil and climate change, ending up with a cordial tasting of all the goodness that comes from his love for the homeland and a family business handed down to him from his grandfather. Hop on their website and reserve your tour. It will be the highlight of your trip to Italy ... if you ever leave Valpolicella ;)

It was a bit difficult for us to find but worth it. We had a wonderful tour in the back of the truck, went to the caves, then back to the main area for a very relaxed and wonderful tasting. The wines were delicious and we love Amarone now.

Do not hesitate visit this winery!
We've visited this place in the middle of February 2018 and were met by very welcoming Arianna, who told us about history and traditions of the winery. After a walk around beautiful and atmospheric villa and vineyards we had also an opportunity to test some wine. Tenute Ugolini have very high quality organic wine production. We've most liked a stylish Valpolichella Superiore and very good Amarone and Recioto. You will feel that all wines of Tenute Ugolini produced with respect, care and love.
We spent a really good time and hope to visit this place in the future again. Thank you.
