Let’s imagine an elegant villa from the XVII Century, a majestic park and the gentle slopes of the Berici hills; on the background the blue summer sky and the fascination of history that fills the air. A dream? Not at all!
This is the atmosphere at Villa di Montruglio, the venue of our next event: a wine seminar for those of you loving wine and willing to finally approach the basic information about viticulture, wine making and wine tasting in a magical location.
Our “first date” will start in the vineyards: during the stroll among the beautiful and luxuriant vines of Villa di Montruglio we will discover the local terroir and understand what it means to be a winemaker; an intrusion in the nature to sense the delicate and fascinating balance between men and the environment.
From the beauty of nature to the beauty of architecture the step is short! After the stroll our seminar will continue in the Olympus Room of Villa di Montruglio. In this second phase we will understand what happens when the grape reaches the wine cellar: we will unveil you the secrets of wine making and you’ll discover how white, red and sparkling wines are produced.
After so much theory we will then move on to the practice with a wine tasting! We will guide the tasting using an educational approach in order to give you the basic skills that are necessary to evaluate the wine – useful and practical information that you might use when buying a bottle in a wine shop, when enjoying an aperitif or sharing some wine with your friends during dinner.
The appointment is for Sunday, July 30 at 6 p.m. in Mossano, a rural village not far from Vicenza; Villa di Montruglio will exceptionally be open to the public thank to the initiative “FAI un giro in Villa” organized by FAI giovani Vicenza.
