Wine Tasting in Valpolicella Classica: the cradle of Amarone
Our vineyards are on average 30/50 years old and are cultivated following the typical “pergola veronese” or “filare speronato” (guyot) methods. All producing procedures of our wine take place within our small farm, Agricola Franchini. Tradition and pride coming from the cultivation of our own vineyard is priceless, so we make sure that very operation in the fields is done manually, from the pruning to the natural fertilization, with patience and respect for our nature. For this reasons, we place these aspects at the first places.

A tale on the Palladian Unesco Heritage
The Director of the Business Network created by the owners of the Unesco Palladian villas will take you into a virtuous tale about Vicenza in its Golden Age, offering you an unparalleled perspective from which to start your visit to the city of Palladio. This story tells of a community that was independent in spirit and devoted to commerce by vocation. A compelling story of international political alliances born from the great ferment of the Reformation, of families whose nobility was not only a rank, linked to the silk trade that made the Serenissima a socio-cultural center of such relevance that even Rome feared it. A plot whose texture is represented by the rich Unesco heritage that the genius of Palladio left to the city, becoming a model of timeless modernity. A story that you will hear in the exceptional context of Palazzo Valmarana Braga, one of the architect's most beautiful creations today privately owned, and in its immediate surroundings.
