A walk through the vineyards

The tour after a warm wellcome will carry on with a walk through the vineyards in the "Sengia"estate  where you will see the farming system and pruning "PERGOLA" traditional of Valpolicella and  the system "GUYOT"

In the background the "MAROGNE" (the dry stone walls typical in this area) and at the bottom of the hill the splendid olive trees from which we produce our oil

The productive zone

After the grape harvest begins the route of the wine birth

You will visit the natural drying area with the typical “ARELLE” (large trays of bamboo cane) and the underground cellar

In the cellar the grapes turns into wine with fermentation and maceration in steel containers and then has a rest and ages in Slavonian oak 25 hl

The aging times vary from about two years for the Recioto and about five for the Amarone, long time that gives to the wine roundness and longevity

The winetasting

 

The tours ends with the winetasting in the cellars of the ancient house, according to a document in the 1706 at the archives of the state of Venice, where our fathers use to vinify the “nectar” of the area

The winetasting includes some of our best wines or old vintage and on request you can taste wines in conjunction with the local cuisine
