Who we are


We are in Parona, at the gates of Verona, the first winery you come across going along “Strada della Valpolicella”.
After 50 years of supplying grapes to the Cooperative Winery of San Pietro in Cariano, in 2009 the Marchesini Family decided to establish its own Company, Società Agricola Monte Cillario, with the aim of bottling their own products and showing what their vineyards could offer.
The wines are of immediate pleasure and intense aroma, varietal and evolve with aging.
The goal is the production of typical wines which, harvest after harvest, can rely on a precise supervision: tre occhi (three eyes). The first, from the past, points the way, Grandpa Rinaldo; the second, in the present, follows this way, the sons Gianni and Franco; the third, in the future, that will expand it, modernizes and restarts, Enrico and Riccardo, grandchildren.
Our land stretches for 30 hectares, 90% of which are for vineyards and 10% for olive groves. All the processes take place at the Winery: reception, grapes’ transformation and drying, refining, bottling and consequent storage of wines.
The range is wide: Valpolicella, Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso, Amarone della Valpolicella, Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva, Recioto della Valpolicella, Rosso Veronese igt, Chardonnay igt. The company wants to grow and improve under every aspect. We have made thought out choices, by taking into consideration quality and healthy features of the wine.
We have great plans to share with you!
