Head off with us for a trip where we'll enjoy 150 years of history!  We'll head to Villa Canestrari to enjoy one of the most interesting wine museums in the area. This was set to celebrate the work of four generation of wine-growers and wine-makers and also to show to visitors how hard the working life of this people was. You can see many instruments, tools and very old notebooks dated as far back as 1886, which contains jottings on wine and wine making by Carlo Bonuzzi, an ancestor of Villa Canestrari's owners.

After the museum we will have the wine tasting of Villa Canestrari selection with accompanied of fingercheese Monteveronese DOP. This will be followed by free time for shopping at the wine shop and then a quick visit to Frantoio Bonamini and their amazing "olio extravergine di oliva."
