The property belongs to the Cavicchioli family, winegrower and producer of award-winning and renowned wines since 1928. Surrounded by woods and vineyards, it is built under a hill to have a low environmental and energy impact. The terrestrial part where the bottles are aged for several years, guarantees the optimal conditions of low temperature in summer, avoiding thermal excursions in every season.
