VILLA CANESTRARI

Regional Winner - Art and Culture - Verona

Villa Canestrari was founded in the 1990s by the Bonuzzi and Franchi families, who have been producing the typical wines of Verona for over 130 years. Our vineyards are located in the Illasi Valley, between Colognola ai Colli and Illasi, where the limestone terrain of Valpolicella overlaps with the volcanic soil of Soave, allowing us to produce both types of wine. Thanks to the different microclimates, the soils produce grapes that highlight the typical characteristics of our wines and enable us to experiment various kinds of ancient local grapes varieties as well. In Illasi, above the ageing cellar of Villa Canestrari, we have set up a Wine Museum where you can sense the passion for producing wine and the gratitude for the work of the ancestors who, for over a century, preserved the documents and agricultural equipment which can be admired today during our guided tours.
