Velenosi Vini- Exploring World of Wines from Italy

Velenosi Vini Winery recount the nature from the ancient teachings interpreted with imagination and dynamism

The Velenosi Vini Winery was born in 1984 from the aspiration to harmony between taste and colour. Ercole and Angela Velenosi, with Paolo Garbini since 2005, combining traditional craftsmanship with modern technologies, have reinterpreted the winemaking processes with creativity and gave life to a company that today brings the aromas and nuances of the Piceno territory through wines into the world, with a unique character.


Their passion is dictated by the expectation of the moment when the harvest begins, to see the birth of wine and discover it enrich with perfumes. It is in the search for the perfect balance between taste and colour that, in 1984, the Cantina Velenosi was born. Entrepreneurs Ercole and Angela Velenosi have combined traditional craftsmanship with advanced technologies, reinterpreting the winemaking processes with creativity and thus giving life to a company that has continued to expand, with the arrival of Paolo Garbini in 2005, and which today brings in the whole world the scents and colors of the Piceno territory through wines of inimitable character.

Velenosi’s World of Wines

OFFIDA DOCG ROSSO: Gold Winner at London Wine Competition 2018

First bottled harvest was in 1998 in the production area owned vineyards located in the municipalities of Offida and Castel di Lama. Grapes harvested by hand in mid-October, early in the morning or late in the afternoon, in small crates, before arriving in the cellar, in cold storage.

LudiAfter destemming, the grapes are conveyed into 100 Hl steel fermentation tanks, fitted with pumping and temperature control systems. The maceration on the skins lasts about 28 days. After fermentation, the wine is placed in new barriques, personally selected by them, coming from various French artisan toneries, for about 18/24 months. The different types of wine are kept separate until the time of assembly, which occurs after a careful selection of products in barrels.


Ludi was born as a game and its name confirms it. Because they never forget the close bond that exists between wine, pleasure, joy; all obviously made with the utmost seriousness. With Ludi they put themselves at stake: it is not a point of arrival, but a starting point.
