Sunset over the Bologna hills, wonderful wines, gracious hosts- what more could one want? A charming small vineyard worth a visit. Note if you are taking a taxi from Bologna, try to arrange one for the return trip. Thank you, Fabio, for the ride home!

Called for an appointment on the same day and got a very nice, personalized tour of the small winery which is in a very beautiful location. We tasted the wine and liked it a lot, specially the sparkling Pignoletto.
