Masi Agricola

The history of Masi is the history of a family and its vineyards in the Venetian regions. The name itself derives from "Vaio dei Masi", the small valley in Valpolicella acquired by the Boscaini family, who are still its owners now, at the end of the XVIII century.

Today, Sandro Boscaini, company President and Managing Director, runs Masi with the help of his daughter Alessandra, in charge of sales and administration; his son Raffaele, Marketing Manager and Co-ordinator of the Masi Technical Group and his brother Bruno, Production and Plant Manager. His brother Mario has his own business, but is still part of Masi and an adviser to the management.

Masi's mission and work practices make it one of the elite winemaking enterprises in the Venetian regions, making products that express the style, characteristics and values of the area. This makes it an ambassador for its region on both a national and international level. As such, the company is proud to be a founder member of various associations that promote the iconic brands of "made in Italy" around the world:

Altagamma Foundation
This Foundation comprises the best of "made in Italy" with a small group of selected member companies that "operate in the highest echelons of the market and embody the style and culture of Italy, together with innovation, service and quality." Headed by Santo Versace, the Foundation includes the top Italian names in the worlds of fashion, design, tourism, food and wine. The current members in the wine and food sectors are: Allegrini, Baratti & Milano, Bellavista, Biondi Santi, Branca, Ca' del Bosco, Caffarel, Ferrari, Illy Caffè, Masi Agricola and Sanpellegrino.

Italian Quality Wine Institute - Grandi Marchi

Members are families and brands which are representative of the whole Italian regional winemaking tradition and have a common objective based on the promotion of Italian quality wine at an international level through marketing, events and promotional activities.

Amarone Families
With Marilisa Allegrini at its head, the Amarone Families association was formed to protect the excellence of Amarone and to promote its image at an international level. The twelve names who founded the organisation are all specialist family companies with proven histories of quality Amarone wine production: Allegrini, Begali, Brigaldara, Masi Agricola, Musella, Nicolis, Speri, Tedeschi, Tenuta Sant'Antonio, Tommasi, Venturini, and Zenato.
