Cantina Valpolicella Negrar is first in the "Top 20" of Italian wine cooperatives compiled by Weinwirtschaft, the wine magazine published by the German Meininger which, since 2010, has opened to cooperatives of the Bel Paese the internationally recognized award.
A great result for the Verona winery, which within a few years rose to the top (in 2011 it was the fifth, first in the Venetian region), going up in 2016 on the highest step of the podium. The magazine conducted a comparative test on a panel of six wines for the winery, so as to ensure the quality of the wine production of the Italian cooperatives participating in the selection, ranking that does not include the South Tyrolean, judged separately.
We made the enterprise. "We are very proud of the recognition, which rewards a team built on strong quality manufacturing bases and conducted every day in the vineyard and in the winery by our 230 members, together with a team of professionals that enhances the potential. All this in the awareness to pursue an  entrepreneurial cooperative model, innovative from birth, which took place 83 years ago on August 23, when six  Valpolicella entrepreneurs decided to defend the land from speculative investments, thinking immediately to arrive directly to the consumer with the product bottled fifty years earlier than the other wineries in Italy did. In the 30s of the last century, then, we invented the name Amarone, and we were the only ones, for thirty years, to sell it under the name Amarone Extra  della Valpolicella "says proudly the president, Renzo Bighignoli.
The wines judged in qualitative comparison. There are two Amarone wines, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG Vigneti di Jago Domini Veneti 2010 (top category line) and Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico Domini Veneti 2012 (best seller wines) among the wines judged by Weinwirtschaft. In the category "top line", there is also the Recioto della Valpolicella Classico DOCG Vigneti di Moron Domini Veneti 2012, while in the category "best-selling wines" are the Ripasso Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore La Casetta Domini Veneti 2013 and Valpolicella DOC Classico Cantina di Negrar 2015; Finally, in the category "regional specialties", the wine judged was the Ripasso Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore Le Roselle 2014 Cantina di Negrar.
Four out of six wines belong to the DOMINI VENETI line, which includes in its name the echo of the splendor of the Serenissima, of which in the '500 Valpolicella was an integral part, and created in 1989 by the Cantina to give identity to the most exclusive range of production, results of a long and integrated viticultural and oenological project to enhance the typicality of the territory. DOMINI VENETI began a path that has proved, winning both for the wine guides and forthe sales, and culminated in 2011 in the "Espressioni" project, aimed at searching for differences, those of the terroir of the 5 valleys of Valpolicella, to affirm the unique world of Valpolicella and Amarone 5 cru called by the names of places where it is produced, Villa (Negrar), Castelrotto (San Pietro in Cariano), San Rocco (Marano ), Mazzurega (Fumane) and Monte (St. Ambrogio). 

To receive the first prize of Italian Cooperatives 2016 Weinwirtschaft in Deidesheim, Luca Bissoli, commercial director of the winery. "The message that I carry to Germany is our desire to continue to offer high quality wines to those consumers looking for products with environmental sustainability and territory charachter in which you recognize generations of winemakers, the Valpolicella people who have made and are making the difference ".
