VAL POLIS CELLAE
Open Cellars, Flavors and Art in a unique land, Sunday 9 October 2022

Imagine yourself on an autumn Sunday among the vineyards that begin to take on the characteristic yellow-orange color with the warmth of a mid-October day.

Imagine finding yourself in some of the best wineries in Valpolicella, where the secrets for the production of excellent local red wines are carefully guarded.

And at the same time be surrounded by works of art as long as you taste a glass of Amarone or Recioto combined with the flavors of the territory.

This is Val Polis Cellae, the flagship event organized by the Strada del Vino Valpolicella for the second Sunday of October and to which many people participate every year, both wine lovers but also simply curious!

Each year specific itineraries are decided to which some of the best wineries in the area are associated, which will offer a tasting of their wines, an art exhibition with artists present on site, a guided tour of the company and, in some cases, also a typical Veronese specialty.

The goal is in fact to keep alive the art-gastronomy-wine-discovery union of the territory and its products.

This year the date of the event is 9th October and from 10 am to 6 pm The participating wineries will open their doors to enthusiasts, tourists and the curious!

-route SANT’AMBROGIO: the magical village of San Giorgio Ingannapoltron and its Romanesque Longobard parish;

-route FUMANE/SAN PIETRO IN CARIANO: the Sanctuary of the Madonna de la Salette (municipality of Fumane) and the Romanesque parish of San Floriano (municipality of San pietro In Cariano);

-route MARANO DI VALPOLICELLA: the ancient church of Santa Maria della Valverde, from whose elevated position, in the hamlet of San Rocco, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the valleys below.

-route PEDEMONTE: Villa Serego-Santa Sofia, built only partially according to the design of its architect, Andrea Palladio. Since 1996 the villa has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

-route NEGRAR DI VALPOLICELLA: for a walk through the vineyards, to visit historic buildings, given the elegant and romantic atmosphere that you breathe, we suggest Villa Mosconi Bertani.
