At Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella
The Serego Alighieri Estate belongs to direct descendants of Dante the Poet, who have lived in Valpolicella since 1353. The visit, which offers a dip into the archive of the noble family of the Counts Serego Alighieri and their lives in the Valpolicella area, includes a walk through the gardens and vines of the estate and a stop at the the small Serego Alighieri cellar which is full of the aromas of cherry barrels, used according to family tradition, and afterwards, to the drying room to see the appassimento of the grapes. The experience finishes with a tasting of a selection of fine wines.
The Serego Alighieri Estate offers the chance to stay overnight in the historic Foresteria, redesigned to contain eight appartments which are decorated in the traditional style of country gentlefolk: an oasis of peace in which to take a leisurely dip into the archive of the noble family of the Counts Serego Alighieri in the Valpolicella. Also available are rooms suitable for events and conferences with a professional kitchen fully equipped for courses and the discovery of the tastes and aromas of the natural products of the Estate and the surrounding area, all matched appropriately with the wine. In the Sales area, it is possible to taste and buy the whole range of Masi and Serego Alighieri wines, along with wines from a number of great Amarone vintages.
The nearby Cantine Masi wine cellars can be visited as an extension of this tour.
