Discover the beauty and the flavors of the Veneto's Valpolicella wine country with this exclusive private visit to the Villa della Torre, the principal estate of the Allegrini family and headquarters of their wine making operation.
Completed around 1560, the Villa della Torre is an authentic masterpiece of Renaissance architecture that owes its construction to the learned intellectual and humanist, Giulio della Torre. Contributors to the architectural project included Giulio Romano, Michele Sanmicheli, Bartolomeo Ridolfi, and Giulio Della Torre himself. The villa was purchased by Allegrini in 2008. It is surrounded by vineyards, whose namesake wine is famous for its intensity and complexity and has been named six times in the Top 100 Wines of Spectator. Furthermore, Allegrini was named Gambero Rosso winery of the year 2016.
After an introduction to the historic cantina and an explanation of the centuries-old production practices of the Veneto area, you will enjoy a wine tasting. The tour will then continue to the Villa della Torre where you will be privately guided through the interior of the villa and visit the mysterious temple of Jupiter Ammon, positioned at the highest point of the entire villa complex overlooking the vineyards. Your visit will conclude in the splendid tasting room where you will be served a light lunch, accompanied by three of the family's best wines, including their illustrious Amarone.
