A taste of Veneto: Exploring Soave Classico wines

Discover the Garganega grape and the unique qualities of the volcanic soil that nurtures Soave Classico during an intimate wine tasting in Ciao's cellar.

Located in Brognoligo, a little village at the heart of Soave Classico, Le Battistelle is a winery born from the passion of the Dal Bosco family.
