Valpolicella in autunno

Our journey begins with a walk in the vineyard

The property develops at 500 meters above sea level, with exposure to the hot sun from the south, within an unspoiled natural context

Breathe in the cool breeze that blows from the mountains to the north (a pre-Alpine area called Lessinia) and admire the picturesque landscape where our vineyards thrive. Venture into this magical journey among the dry stone walls, recognize the different types of vines and understand the typical characteristics of the volcanic soil. Find its aromas during wine tasting
