Guided Tours and Wine Tastings

The Villa and its cellars have played a significant role in the history of both art and winemaking in Verona. Today in this same storied location, Gaetano Bertani and his family continue this important cultural and enological tradition.

Guided tours follow the history of the Villa, its architecture and wine production, taking guests through the elegant rooms and salons, the gardens and Romantic park, the historic cellars and the vineyards which produce grapes for Amarone and Valpolicella wines.

Wine tastings include a minimum of four wines from different Veronese valleys, all produced by the Bertani family. Each wine is presented with an explanation of the terroir, grape varietal, method of vinification and its particular sensory characteristics.

The guided tour runs forty-five minutes long. The full tour, complete with a guided tour and wine tasting, lasts an hour and a half. Our staff speaks Italian, English, German and Spanish. To accompany the wine tasting, guests may choose to add a selection of locally-produced cold-cuts and cheeses.

Guided Tour Only

A 45 minute guided tour of the Villa, the gardens and park, vineyards and historic cellars. In addition to Italian, tours can be conducted in English, German and Spanish.
