It's harvest time, it's wine time.
We have selected the structures from north to south which we believe in addition to good drinking have the architectural beauty, ancient or modern, the cellar is a magical place to visit. In every point of Italy there is wine and where there is wine there is friendship.
LES CRETES - Located in Aymavilles at 600 m a.s.l. (2000 ft), the Refuge of the wine is Les Crêtes tasting room. A place to take a break, in the wonderful frame of Valle d’Aosta mountains, tasting hancrafted, quality wines.
TRAMIN WINERY - Near Bolzano The Gewürztraminer winery. Constantly permeated by light, gazing at valleyand the green arms that perfectly surround the vineyards and watching over the changing of the seasons.
CASTELLO DI MONTE VIBIANO VECCHIO - Staying green and in continuous eco-sustainable research, this is the mood of the Tenuta di Montevibiano Vecchio. Everything remains intact, in the gentle hills of Umbria, using technology at the service of the environment. With the castle to watch over them, it seems to go back in time.
FEUDI DI SAN GREGORIO - Today epitomises the oenological renaissance of southern Italy, promoting a wine culture for the rediscovery of Mediterranean flavours. A complex project for which world-famous architects and designers have collaborated: from Massimo and Lella Vignelli, the Japanese Hikaru Mori with Maurizio Zito and Fabio Novembre.
FEUDO DEL PISCIOTTO - In rural areas of south-eastern Sicily - an area that is still authentically Sicilian - near the borders of the Niscemi Sughereta Nature Reserve, there is a historic feud dating back to the 1700s that has been carefully restored maintaining the imposing original structure. This extraordinarily beautiful place hosts the Feudi del Pisciotto winery, a right way to combine holidays and wine culture.
L'ASTORE - Is the ideal place for a multisensory experience. Surrounded by about 100 hectares of vineyards and olive groves, this historic building has been renovated with great attention and respect for its original features. It has an underground oil mill and a wine cellar for wine aging according to the architectural tradition of Salento with vaulted star ceilings and using only local materials such as local lime and sand stone, called by visitors "The Cathedral of Wine".
