In the heart of the Valpolicella region, birthplace of legendary wines such as Amarone and Valpolicella, and minutes from the city of Verona and Lake Garda, the elegant complex of Villa Mosconi lies nestled in a pocket of untouched nature, bordered by wooded slopes and beautiful vineyards.
This picturesque valley was known in Roman times for its wines, its cellars, and for its clear running waters which fed the ancient aqueduct of Verona.
The villa itself claims a unique place of importance in the history of winemaking. It was in these cellars in 1936 that the name "Amarone" was given to what is now considered the most respected Veronese wines in the world. Constructed in the first half of the 18th century, the complex comprises the main villa and chapel, an imposing cellar, and sixteen hectares of orchard enclosing the gardens and vineyards.
It was, in fact, a destination for writers and thinkers of the epoch. Scipione Maffei and Ippolito Pindemonte composed some of their most noted works while in residence.
With the arrival of the Trezza di Musella family, the Estate acquired its important position in the world of winemaking, becoming a benchmark for quality at a national level.
In the early 1950s, the Bertani family, with its more than three centuries of winemaking tradition, purchased the Estate as the seat of production for Amarone and Valpolicella Classico. Today, the orchards, gardens, cellars, and a great part of the vineyards belong to Gaetano Bertani who along with his sons Giovanni and Guglielmo continues the tradition of vinicultural excellence not only at the Villa Mosconi, but at a second location in the Illasi Valley.
The Villa Mosconi Bertani is an ideal location for weddings, dinners, and other important events.
