Bike Station

The first station for cyclists in Veneto ..

The first bike station in Veneto is active at Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde for cyclists who pedal immersed in an area between hills, farms, villas and vineyards.

La Bike Station Valpolicella

Valpolicella is loved by cyclists for its wealth of itineraries in nature and for the uniqueness of its landscapes. In particular, there are many sportsmen who decide to tackle the curves and hairpin bends that lead to the Crocetta di Marano di Valpolicella by bike. At Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde, cyclists can stop, make small repairs and rest in the special Bike Station set up here, the first station for cyclists in the Veneto cellar.

A workshop for bicycles ..

The true lovers of two wheels take care of their bicycles every day and are really demanding: in our Bike Station of Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde they will be able to find shelter and find all the useful tools for the maintenance and small repairs that the bicycle needs.

..With a refreshment point for cyclists ..

The cyclist, having reached almost the top of the hill of Mount Crocetta, in Marano di Valpolicella in the province of Verona, finds refreshment, hospitality and can also taste a good glass of Valpolicella wine.

Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde also has 7 brand new generation e-bikes with Fantic engine and fat wheels to visit the vineyards of the Estate by bicycle and experience the countryside in a green and sustainable way.

for bikers and wine lovers from Lake Garda and Verona

Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde, located on the slopes of the hill that leads from Fumane to Marano di Valpolicella, is in a strategic position for cyclists from Lake Garda or Verona who want to take a break sipping a glass of wine with a local dish to accompany it. . We have therefore rediscovered the ancient function of Tenuta Santa Maria Valverde, an old post for travelers where spring water flows, since the nineteenth century. A tradition, that of stopping in the locality of Gazzo, which is renewed.
