In the heart of Soave, a little Medieval village surrounded by fascinating hills and protected by majestic Medieval walls, you can find the Cantina del Castello, overlooked by the ancient Scaligero castle.
Cantina del Castello is located in the Sanbonifacio Count’s Palace in Corte Pittora 5, a charming building whose origins date back to the XIII century.
Legend has it, that the tunnel located underneath the palace was once used as secret passageway to the castle itself. This is why the winery is known as Cantina del Castello, that means: the winery of the castle. Today you can visit the entrance of the tunnel in the antique cellar, where the ageing process of the delicious sweet wine Recioto takes place.
