Podere Villa Alessi

Let’s learn about the Euganean Hills

BARREL ROOM / MUSEUM

Bottaia

Come and touch samples of the typical rocks that form the territory (volcanic and sedimentary rocks), in order to discover how the Euganean Hills were formed millions of years ago.

To make the wine tastings and visits more complete and interesting for our guests, we have set up in our Barrel room a small museum representative of the Euganean territory. Here, you can closely observe samples of soil, on which the roots of the vines give us the precious Euganean wine, and old-fashioned tools used to work these lands.

Next to the farm still stands a historic villa dating back to the 12th century, whose owner was not an ordinary man: Mr Isidoro Alessi, jurist, historian and archaeologist born in the 18th century in the nearby Este, who is considered today the father of Atestine archaeology. Also Villa Alessi has always been attentive to the territory and its ancient past: that’s why we have set up a little museum in our Barrel room, where you can find brief historical explanations and ancient artefacts. In addition, we have used the ancient Venetian alphabet on the labels of our wines, don’t you believe it?

Vigneto didattico

Il nostro Podere ospita, in una superficie di circa 6000 mq, un esempio unico di vigneto sperimentale didattico al cui interno è possibile godersi passeggiate in proprio o guidate. Si tratta di un’importante enciclopedia ampelografica che raccoglie 139 varietà diverse di viti antiche e non.

Cartina alla mano (scaricabile qui) divertitevi a trascorrere qualche piacevole ora di relax ammirando e passeggiando tra le diverse varietà; in ogni stagione il nostro vigneto ha il suo fascino: l’autunno con i suoi colori ambrati e rossi, la primavera e il suo tripudio di verdi diversi, l’estate che sprigiona profumi inebrianti e anche l’inverno, quando i tralci vibrano nel silenzio ovattato di questa stagione.
