Since the first small parcel of land in the Valpolicella Classica purchased by Giacomo Tommasi, our hard work and commitment to manage every aspect of the growth of the company directly defines us. This connection to the land, to the people and the markets, has honed our business insight, and strategic innovation, without ever losing touch with the respect and love harbored for the traditions and unique qualities that define this historic wine region.

An attentive ear to change, respect of place, and high-quality production are three driving factors that put Tommasi among Italy's leading producers. The strength of the family truly forges every Tommasi.

Our Vision

Puts the wellbeing of people at the center of everything we do in our quest to bring the excellence of Italy's wines, and taste for the "bella vita" to every corner of the world.

Our Values:
Trust and Quality

We see the land as a long term commitment, to cultivate with the utmost care and respect in a pact of trust between man and nature. We share a similar trust and transparency with all of our stakeholders. Trust keeps us humble; Trust makes us strive to be better people every day.

We want to surprise and delight our clients and partners by creating unforgettable moments and products that are beautiful, good and well made, while responding in a timely and efficient manner to satisfy their most demanding needs and wishes.
