HISTORY OF THE VALPOLICELLA
From the village to the villa, from the vineyard to the cellar: digressions in the history of Valpolicella.
Professor Giovanni Viviani, historian of the Valpolicella, comes back to Villa Spinosa as our special guest for a series of meetings about the history of the Valpolicella, the vines and the wine.
Four evenings have been scheduled and the meetings will be held at the Villa Spinosa’s on site wine shop "Enoteca in Tinaia", in via Jago dall'Ora 16, in Negrar di Valpolicella, in January and February 2020.
The main focus of the course is to deepen the great historical and cultural heritage that is at the origins of the wine world that today characterizes our Valpolicella.
The topics will be the village, the villa and the rural courts, the vineyards and the forest.
The meetings will be a moment of confrontation and dialogue, by gathering the suggestions and observations of the audience too.
At the end of each meeting the tasting of a Villa Spinosa wine will be offered.
A participation fee of € 20.00 is recommended and it is to be allocated directly by each participant to the Documentation Center for the History of the Valpolicella.
