The Masi story began in 1772, when the Boscaini family acquired prestigious vineyards in the small valley called “Vaio dei Masi”. After more than 200 years of passionate winemaking the company is still in family hands, run by the sixth and seventh generations.
The Valpolicella Classica region is a valley that is subdivided into three constituent valleys: Negrar, Marano and Fumane, each scored by its eponymous torrent, all tributaries to the Adige River that laps its southern limits. Its territory, mainly hilly, extends north of Verona, to the foothills of the Veronese Prealps. Lake Garda is its western border, and the Lessini mountains provide protection to the east and north.
