﷯ The Buglioni in the Vineyards of the Valpolicella Classico In June 1993, Alfredo Buglioni purchased an old farmhouse surrounded by 3.89 hectares (9.6 acres) of vineyards and 2 hectares (4.9 acres) of olive groves in Valpolicella Classico, northwest of Verona, Italy. Alfredo, his wife, Gabriella, son Mariano, and Mariano's family, had been living in a larger village, and were ready to move to the more-relaxing countryside in Corrubbio di San Pietro in Cariano, one of five villages that comprise the Valpolicella Classico region. After only two months in the Buglionis' new home, and without any knowledge of how to prune, harvest or store the precious wine grapes surrounding their farmhouse, the vineyards were ready to be harvested. Initially, each vintage was a joyous event shared with friends and collaborators, but soon the Buglionis' vision and passion allowed them to dream that they could become "real" winemakers. In 2000 — after renovating the farmhouse and its underground cellars — the Buglionis turned to the prestigious Oenology Institute of San Michele all'Adiage in Trento, Italy, to find a young enologist to join them in their new adventure as wine producers. Diego Bertoni took up the challenge and is still their enologist today. The vineyard is now 46 hectares and planted directly with the traditional indigenous varietals of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara, and the recent planting of Oseleta, Croatina and the white Garganega. The vine training system used in the fourteen hectares of vineyard nearby the winery is the “double pergola”, while the other vineyards in the municipalities of Sant’Ambrogio and San Pietro in Cariano are trained using the “guyot” system. The light, dark alluvial soil rich in gravel, and the meticulous vine pruning and control techniques ensure the production of prime quality grapes, part of which are selected for drying to obtain the most full-bodied and intense wines of our range
About the accommodation Many of the original architectural elements have been maintained, such as the original stone brick walls and wonderful old chimneys, creating a warm, comfortable and homey place. The farm has 15 spacious and comfortable double/triple rooms, with original stone walls and timber beam ceilings. Each room has a spacious bathroom, air conditioning and flat screen television. The furniture is in harmony with the setting: beds in wrought iron and clear wooden wardrobes and closets. But the genuineness of past interiors merges perfectly with the most modern of facilities. Each room is provided with air conditioning, hair dryer and flat screen television. The Wi-Fi internet connection is also available in common areas of the building. During cold months breakfast is served in the dining room elegantly furnished with period style pieces of furniture. The buffet is prepared in the kitchen where an old chimney gives warmth to the room. Tableware is stored and displayed in ancient cosy cupboards and fridge is sixties style. During summertime doors are open, so guests can enjoy the beautiful view of surrounding vineyards and have breakfast outside, in the shade of the wisteria arbour “al fresco”. Rich aperitifs can be arranged on demand, to be enjoyed under the arbour or in the comfortable dining room.
