Cradle of the history
and tradition of Soave wine
In the heart of the ancient medieval village of Soave, at the foot of the Scaliger Castle, in Corte Pittora 5, stands the palace of the Counts Sanbonifacio, which since the 1960s has been home to Cantina del Castello.
According to the legend, the palace’s origin is connected to the Templar history and today represents the perfect combination between tradition and innovation. Here the past meets the present to create fine wines which contribute to the promotion and the valorization of the territory of Verona.
This essential link to history characterizes the philosophy of the winery that produces wines based on the research and the respect of the tradition of the Soave.
