Gaetano Rubinelli (1886 – 1971) was the founder of Rubinelli Vajol, having first built the Chievo Dam along the River Adige, an effort that supplied electricity to all of the Veronese industries at the beginning of the century. Following the success of this project, he and his family decided to begin the production of wine in the heart of Valpolicella.
Today, Rubinelli Vajol is still owned and operated by the Rubinelli family. They only produce numbered bottles of the 5 classic Valpolicella wines: Amarone, Ripasso, Valpolicella Classico Superiore, Valpolicella Classico and Recioto.
