Pieropan Calvarino

The Pieropan legacy began in the late 1800s when visionary winemaker Leonildo Pieropan purchased his winery building in the historic town of Soave.

Today, this legacy of exceptional Italian winemaking is carried forward in the same historic winery in the heart of Soave village by Leonildo’s grandson, Leonildo “Nino” Pieropan, his wife Teresita, and their sons, Andrea and Dario. Overseeing viticulture and winemaking respectively, Andrea and Dario employ the same meticulous attention to detail as their forebears in bringing these celebrated wines to life.
