Return Policy

To protect the provenance of delivered wines, exchange and returns are not allowed.

Corked Wines

While we make every attempt to provide wines of good quality and provenance, we cannot guarantee the personal 'drinkability' for every bottle we sell. It is the industry standard that older wines are purchased "as is" and at the buyer's risk as to the drinkability of the wine. This policy includes "corked" wines (those tainted with TCA and smell of wet cardboard). This wine fault occurred during the cork selection process and is completely out of our control. For the aforementioned reasons, no refund or exchange will be granted.

Amarone della Valpolicella is an intensely flavored dry red wine made from dried (passito) grapes. It is made in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy, and is one of the region's most prestigious red wines. Area of cultivation is an unique vineyard sited at the top of the hill of the district Marano in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico region. Its name “Postera” in local dialect refers to it being exposed to the sun all day. Blends for the Amarone wine are Corvina 70%, Rondinella 20% - Croatina and Oseleta 10%. Hand harvested for process of drying that lasts on average 3 months. Wine making is gentle crushing, followed by a maceration on the skins and a slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 40 - 60 days. After, it is aged in French barrique and tonneaux for about 18 months and afterwards in stainless steel tanks. 

The Manara winery started in San Floriano in 1950. After three generations and with its fourth gradually joining in, the Manara family is carrying on its wine-growing tradition with passion and knowledge, maintaining the strong bond with the land that saw it originate and grow. The search for innovation can not overlook the respect for tradition.

Since the 1950s the presence of the Manara winery is certified in San Floriano, in the heart of Valpolicella Classica. Now, the responsibility for the family business is being put into the hands of the daughters, Julia and Karoline Walch, already the fifth generation. This is the only way to preserve the distinguishability of the wines, without neglecting the incessant search for more modern and more effective production techniques.
