An extraordinary wine and food experience awaits you in the exclusive ambience of Villa Mosconi Bertani in Valpolicella!

Set in a beautiful location in the heart of Valpolicella, this 18th-century Venetian villa is the perfect place to indulge in art, relaxation and flavours. Take advantage of the refined hospitality of the Bertani family and taste their famous vintage wines during a fascinating private guided visit to the Bertani wine cellars and estate... A unique opportunity to visit Villa Bertani in Valpolicella and spend unforgettable moments with your partner, family or friends!

This exclusive experience includes a private wine tasting at Villa Bertani, Italy, of five fine wines accompanied by tastings of several traditional products from the Verona area, as well as the guided tour of the villa, its secular park and the historic cellars that saw the beginnings of Amarone. Treat yourself to a unique day that will leave you with ever-lasting emotions ... Tasting of vintage wines directly on their production site in an amazing location, a charming Venetian villa set in the center of a valley studded with vines and immersed in a romantic atmosphere reminiscent of bygone times!

The hospitality offered by the Bertani family demonstrates the precise will to protect the rich wine and food tradition of Valpolicella. Our proposal will allow you to spend a few hours in this extraordinary historic estate, savouring every detail of it. You will have the opportunity to discover a magical place and relish a one of a kind experience: the visit to Villa Bertani, Valpolicella, will plunge you into a time-honoured atmosphere, still alive and vibrant thanks to the strong attachment of the owners to their property. History and traditions of the area of Verona in an elegant location permeated with culture.

Gaetano Bertani’s family, the current owner of the villa and the annexed cellar, has made a fundamental contribution to the history of wine production in Verona, one of the most renowned not only in Italy, but all over the world. The Amarone tasting at Villa Mosconi Bertani included in the price represents a true organoleptic journey through the various vintages of the finest wines, produced directly in the cellar of the villa.

It was the Bertani family, in fact, who made this precious wine known around the world. Amarone is in itself a strong appealing factor for the wine and food tourism of this flourishing wine region. The experience we are proposing goes beyond the customary visit to a villa and aims to give you the chance to rediscover the best local food and wine products directly where they are made or indeed were discovered, as is the case with the famous Amarone. Gaetano Bertani’s Tenuta Santa Maria is the producer who, after various experiments and inventive ideas, created one of the most famous and appreciated Italian wines in the world. The Amarone tasting at Villa Mosconi Bertani is more than just a glass of wine, it is an experience that will allow you to relish with just one sip all the hues, scents and flavours offered by the surrounding area!



Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2015

Amarone Classico 2011

Amarone Classico 2009

Decima Aurea 2008

Decima Aurea 2004

The tasting includes a platter of cold cuts and cheeses carefully selected among the typical local produce to best enhance the flavour of each wine.


The rich flavour of Valpolicella Classico Ripasso Superiore 2015 is the result of a process that uses exclusively native grape varieties (Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella), grown on the estate's limestone soil in Negrar. The Amarone Classico from the eighteenth-century vineyards of Villa Mosconi Bertani, in their 2009 and 2011 single-year vintages, is a wine of great structure and body, produced with a delicate use of the Veronese Drying method through a slow aging process in barrels. The elegant wine bouquet of Decima Aurea 2004 and 2008 will surprise you thanks to its complex production technique that includes limited drying on Merlot grapes, grown at high density, and subsequent aging in oak barriques.

This experience also includes a private visit to the Villa and the Eighteenth Century Park, the 16th-century Bertani Cellar and the vineyards of the annexed orchard. The visit to the magnificent interior halls will allow you to admire a rich fresco decoration made by painters of the time, in particular the Salone delle Muse finely frescoed with allegories of the seasons that underline, in a clear play of conceptual references, the cycle of agricultural activities of the villa.

Treat yourself to the discovery of one of Valpolicella's hallmarks with an exclusive experience: a visit and wine tasting at Villa Bertani, Italy, in a fabulous setting. Book now your visit to taste Amarone and other fine wines directly on their production site!

A private transfer from Venice, Verona and other cities to Villa Mosconi Bertani is available on request.
