Tasting the estate’s wines with a guided tour of the cellar is available on request, while a selection of gastronomic delicacies can be enjoyed in the elegant gourmet restaurant “La Tavernetta al Castello” at the foot of the manor.

The old stables, now host the Vinum SPA: 2,000 square metres of wellness with sauna, jacuzzi, massages, beauty treatments and much more. The heart of the SPA is wine therapy, with the use of grapes and wines from the estate.

And it is not only for the refined elegance of the buildings and for the beauty of the centuries-old park, but also for its millennial history, full of events and characters.
