We are a family winery "Villa Canestrari" of Colognola ai Colli situated in the east hilly area of Verona. The family Bonuzzi produces wines Soave and Valpolicella (included Amarone) from its own vineyards for over 100 years. The Wine Museum was set up to celebrate the work of four generations of winemakers and to show the visitors how hard but still fascinating was the working life of our grandparents and great-grandparents. The Museum is located in Illasi (five minutes far away from the Vinery) in the spectacular setting of the Val d'Illasi, embroidered by the vineyards and cherry-threes! During the tour people can visit: a collection of mechanical equipments which date back to the beginning of the 20th century, a reproduction of an office of the 1920s, a stone cellar where our Amarone Riserva ages in small wooden barrels (barrique) for 24 months, a laboratory with an original collection of wine-analysis equipments of various ages and the former grape drying loft which has been converted into a conference hall where wine-tasting courses and tasting events are held. Enjoy your Holiday! Discover the ancient art of making wine and traditional flavours of Valpolicella and Soave. Villa Canestrari and the Wine Museum is pleased to welcome you! Call us and book your wine tasting!
