The Scientific Committee is assigning the "Torre del Falasco" Prize consisting of a magic number of Amarone Bottles of the Cantina Valpantena to the best paper presented at the Summer Schools by a junior scholars.

The prestigious "Torre del Falasco" line of Cantina Valpantena owes its name to the brigand Falasco, who, in the seventeenth century,  struck the valley as a cove in a small tower in the hamlet of Stallavena north-east of Verona. This soon became a symbol of linkage with the territory and reason of storytelling and traditions that are well accompanied by any wine from the Torre del Falasco line. The Torre del Falasco wines can count on a constant, accurate and meticulous care of the vineyard and a selection of grapes from the field, which allows the birth of these wines of exceptional value. 

The Scientific Committee decided to prize the same accuracy, "Falasco" courage, and passion that is blended when making a unique brand of  "good" science!

The Organizing Committee  is grateful to Cantina Valpantena for having given us the opportunity to associate scientific culture with the marvels of taste.

 

The winery started operations in1958 as a co-operative association of a number of Veronese vine growers. Today it has 360 Veronese  vine-growers with  a collective surface area of 770 hectares of vines, distributed throughout the province’s major “controlled denomination of origin” production zones. The  production system makes it possible to accurately oversee the course of the raw material and its transformation through close monitoring at every stage ensuring compliance with European foodstuffs standards with its obtaining of the English BRC  and German IFS certificates. Awards won at top level international wine competitions are deserved reward for unstinting research aimed at improving quality and production system. All this is the result of  the Valpantena’s experience and competence, supported by technological, organised and  productive systems, which exploit Valpantena’s wines, thanks to the continuous qualitative research, according to the best traditions.
