Vinification: Embracing Nature's Essence

At Castelvecchio, the vinification process reflects a harmonious blend of nature and expertise. Alcoholic fermentation occurs naturally, guided by the enzymes produced by the grape must's indigenous yeasts. Even during challenging years, the wines thrive, boasting high alcohol content and an abundance of polyphenols. Without the use of exogenous yeasts, Castelvecchio wines embrace the true character of their terroir, offering a distinct structure and captivating aromas.

A Fusion of Modernity and Tradition

The oenological facilities at Castelvecchio showcase a seamless fusion of modern technology and timeless traditions. In the state-of-the-art cellar, grapes undergo their initial processing, while adjacent rooms house steel tanks for fermenting both red and white wines, as well as preserving the whites. The final stages of bottling and aging complete the meticulous cycle of craftsmanship.

An Evocative Haven: The Barrique Cellar

Nestled within the foundations of an ancient tower, adjacent to the Venetian Villa, lies the historic barrique cellar. This captivating environment has been meticulously restored to serve as a sanctuary for refining red wines.
