We went to visit the vineyard in September. Upon arrival, we were very warmly welcomed by Cristina in the family house. There she told us about the interesting history of the winery and the domain. Thereafter we went on to taste the wines, accompanied by delicious cheese, dries grapes and cookies. Cristina explained about the processing of the grapes and soil. After the tasting, we went into the yard and tasted the fresh grapes directly from the vines and Cristina told us more about the harvesting, bio factor etc. We were allowed to come back the other day to visit the new warehouse. Overall a very interesting tour with very friendly and passionate people. If you want to learn something about wine, this is definitely a must-do.

Wonderful tour - very personal description of the place and winemaking in Valpolicella. The wines are tasteful and we got some equally tasty cheese and dried grapes - to experience how Ripasso and Amarone are made. Super!
