Wines of Pieropan, Soave

Pieropan has 58 hectares of vineyards on the stony hills of Soave Classico where they've been making wine the 1890s. In the thirties, they were the first producer to bottle a wine labelled "Soave". A little later, in the early 1970s, they were the very first to make a single-vineyard Soave, their "Calvarino". The name derives from ‘Little Calvary’ referring to the challenges of working in the steep hills and the perilously dangerous path leading down.

In the early 2000s, the family expanded their interests and bought land in the Valpolicella zone to the north of Soave in the twon of Tregnano, including the historic vines on Monte Garzon and the beautiful Villa Cipolla (the "onion House" in English). Their aim was to make "their" style of Valpolicella, retaining their reputation for freshness, elegance, purity of fruit and intensity.

The Villa has a pre-existing cellar which they use for ageing their monumental Amarone, Vigna Garzon.

Excellent service, lovely wine, choosing online is so easy with Chris’ excellent tasting notes and the fun of opening a wine for the first time adds to the experience.

I ordered some sparkling Cava from Chris which arrived so promptly! A really delicate delicious wine that I haven't seen anywhere else. A great selection of quality wines at really good prices!

I must say the wine list here is amazing. Top quality and what I like the most is a rich info on every presented bottle. Pure example when someone puts their heart and knowledge into it. I had a few Burgundy ones and they were delicious! Superb packaging and delivery as well.
My first purchase with Allotment and it was a really positive experience - from their website, product range , price range and professional follow up.

I stumbled across this wine merchant while searching online for a particular Spanish wine. I'm glad I did as I discovered an excellent selection of wines from that country, as well as from other regions, all at competitive prices. Excellent personal service and prompt delivery made for a great overall experience. Highly recommended

The owner Chris provides an incredible customer experience. After I had ordered online, he contacted me separately to offer additional insights into all the wines I had chosen and to give me a voucher for next time.
