We are a little old Italian winemaker family. Our old rural house, called “Il Gazzo”, was building in 1500: it was a post stop where people stop for sleeping and changing horses in the road to the North. We are committed to making the best handcrafted organic wines and creating the best Valpolicella and Amarone tasting experience. We share our family experience of making wines since 4 generations.
We are considering the high wine experience in Valpolicella at all.

My family and I had such a fun time on this experience, despite the fact that it was raining and we couldn’t do the outdoor portion. Our hosts were very flexible, and we didn’t feel like we missed out on anything. The wine was amazing. The snacks were delicious. And the views were unbeatable! Would highly recommend!

We loved this winery experience! The storyline and experience shared was super interesting. Although a few times we lost a track of the story, due to the ‘language barrier’ it was not a problem at all, just gave an Italian spices for the experience itself. The tasting definitely exceeded the expectations, these are fine wines served with local antipasti plate. Nice scenary where you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the time :) thanks!!!
