The experience starts with a welcome aperitif where you’ll meet one of the actors who will accompany you through this wonderful journey made of misteries, family affairs, and of course the explanations about the different winemaking methods, during an about two hours pleasant walk. 

All cellars are close to each other, so it’s not necessary to move by car.

Inside you’ll find several barriques for the refinement of fine red wines and imposing rooms, with long corridors characterized by large vaults and numerous pupitres, where takes place Spumante fermentation in bottle.
