Amarone, Valpolicella, Recioto, Ripasso. And then Garganega and Corvina. They are not just the names of the four Great Veronese Reds and the vines of the generous hill terroir that surrounds beautiful Verona. These are the names of the six exclusive suites of Ca’ del Moro | Wine Retreat, the hospitality proposal of La Collina dei Ciliegi in Valpantena. An eco-resort inspired by nature and wine that revolutionizes and transforms luxury into a slow experience, involving all the 5 senses.
Ca’ del Moro Wine Retreat was awarded as Best Of Wine Tourism 2021 Regional Winner in the category “Accommodation“.
A 53-hectare estate surrounded by vineyards and cherry trees of the winery, between 450 and 700 meters above sea level (17 km from the city center), the accommodation is part of a redemption project for the lush Valpantena. Born from the recovery of the ancient stables and the barn of the hamlet of Erbin, Ca’ del Moro perfectly combines rurality, sustainable modernity, comfort and well-being.
A unique concept since the renovation phase which took place according to the ancient construction methods of the Lessini refuges, recovering the techniques of mixing stones, live limes, woods and natural fibres. From the spaces of the private rooms to the large bathrooms with heated stone; from velvets to linens, as well as to ad hoc light paths and to the choice of a private collection of furnishings with a naturalistic mood.
The wellness experience
Ca’ del Moro is an all-round wellness experience, created to offer a complete accommodation service for those who want to get to know the territory of Valpolicella and its wines. In fact, within the facility there is the restaurant Ca ‘del Moro (about 70 seats), open for both lunch and dinner and dedicated not only to the guests of the resort, but also to anyone who wants to taste the local products.
