About
Serego Alighieri’s Possessioni have belonged to descendants of the Poet Dante since 1353. Visiting them is a dip into the history of a noble family that has passed down a passion for wine and the land for 21 generations. The tour includes the villa park, the vineyards, the ancient drying loft for grape appassimento, and the cherry-wood perfumed cellars. The experience concludes with a tasting of fine wines from the estate and across the Masi range. For almost fifty years, Masi has worked with the Counts Serego Alighieri in the production and distribution of their wines, which are available in the Shop inside the estate walls. Large, light-filled rooms look out over a courtyard, and are perfect for the hosting of events and conferences, while a professional kitchen is fitted out for interactive courses on the preparation of local foods and the right wine pairing with them.

Great tasting experience, very informative
Sep 2020
Excellent wine tasting experience, it was very informative and delivered very well and in a friendly manner. I'm a fan of Amarone anyway but it was interesting to learn more about how it's made and why it's different from other wines. We made a purchase or two in the shop after and it was all very enjoyable.

I was surprised it wasn't as publicised from the road, we had a bit of a job finding it but once we buzzed in at the gate it was all good.

Thanks for giving us the talk and tastings!

Francesco offered a detailed tour covering the history, unique terroir, and cultural factors that come together to produce great red wines from this region. His excellent English language skills made for an engaging tour for all guests. Well worth taking the historic heritage tour.

Beautiful grounds and very good wine
Apr 2019 • Couples
We wanted to tour this estate because Masi Amarone is some of the only Amarone that we can buy in Texas. The grounds were lovely and the wines are very good. I just have to say that we preferred our visits to some of the smaller wineries. We were able to have everything shipped.

Dante's Family Winery
Jun 2018 • Couples
In 1353, Pietro Alighieri, first son of the great poet Dante Alighieri, acquired the property of Casal dei Ronchi in Gargagnago, in the heart of the traditional Valpolicella classic wine production area. In the 1970s, the last descendant of Dante Alighieri entered into a deal with a major wine producer in Italy to produce local and traditional wines. What remains are many of the original buildings and wine production areas, beautiful vistas over the vineyards and an excellent tasting room Wines are great, but a little pricey.

Fabolous!
Oct 2018 • Friends
We had booked the two-hour "Masi Experience", including a visit of the Serego Alighieri estate and a lovely walk through the wineyards to the MASI estate, where we were shown the impressive locations. Last, but not least, we had a wine tasting in the beautiful setting of the terrace and where inspired to purchase some of the lovely wines to bring home. It was a cosy, friendly and highly recommendable experience and thumbs up for Stefano, our guide.

The tour is very good and the hostess was very good with plenty of information about the vineyard history, different techniques, etc. The tasting includes very good stars and the only thing I missed was some food to combine with the wines.

Huge wineshop with all of the wines of masi amd serego alighieri, if the staff has time, you can taste some of the wines for free, as long as you buy something. The prices of the wines are quite high (higher than in the supermaket).

Excellent tour and tasting.
Oct 2017 • Friends
Francesco was our guide and we were impressed at his knowledge. Loved that we actually walked the vineyard and tasted grapes. The drying rooms and cellars were lovely to see. Did a nice tasting and loved the amarone wine. Also, the evoo might have been the best I've ever had. We bought several things and shipped a case of wine home. Beautiful grounds. Lovely way to spend half a day.
