Verona Wine Country Villa with Park
In the heart of the Valpolicella region, birthplace of legendary wines such as Amarone and Valpolicella, and minutes from the city of Verona and Lake Garda, the elegant complex of this 17th century villa lies nestled in a pocket of untouched nature, bordered by wooded slopes and beautiful vineyards.
The villa is the ideal setting for a romantic wedding in Verona - easily accessible from its international airport.
Beyond the Chamber of the Muses, a grand space with stunning 17th-century frescoes, one can appreciate the unspoiled natural beauty of eight hectares of romantic gardens, where extensive vineyards are lovingly cared for and where surge the Roman-era springs of Praele and Monte Riondo, feeding into an inviting wooded pond. The setting is idyllic - a blend of sophistication, elegance in relaxing surroundings.
This picturesque area was known in Roman times for its wines, its cellars, and for its clear running waters which fed the ancient aqueduct of Verona.
The villa itself claims a unique place of importance in the history of wine making. It was in these cellars in 1936 that the name "Amarone" was given to what is now considered the most respected Veronese wines in the world. Constructed in the first half of the 18th century, the complex comprises the main villa and chapel, an imposing cellar, and sixteen hectares of orchard enclosing the gardens and vineyards.
