Grape producer for generations, Graziano Prà bottles his first very personal Soave Classico at the beginning of the 80s.

In 2015 he buys the estate on Monte Bisson, a small hill in Soave, at the top of which there is a Venetian tower from the 1400s.

“Newcomer“ evidently works well, very well, and makes a career quickly: the Amarone della Valpolicella” Morandina “2015 gets 93 pts from J. Suckling, the Soave Classico Otto 2017 is in the Top 100 of Wine Spectator and the 2020 vintage gets 93 pts by J. Suckling.

The perfect experience for lovers of great wines who love to talk to producers and relax in the midst of the nature of the fields and vineyards.

Guided by an expert Ambassador you will walk, visit the cellars, taste the wines of the Wine Spectator Top 100 and you’ll enjoy a truly unique lunch of pairing typical local dishes with the same wines.

Impossible elsewhere vertical tasting (4 old vintages from personal archive of Mr. Graziano Prà) tasting of Amarone della Valpolicella.

You will be welcomed by your private Ambassador for a visit to the winery in Monteforte d’Alpone, then we will move, with about 15 minutes of relaxed driving through the vineyards, to the Soave Estate, Monte Bisson, where your experience will begin to be savored, between nature and relaxation.

You’ll be accompanied on a walk along the “Nature Trail” on Mount Bisson where it will be possible to admire orchids, small butterflies typical of the hilly area, numerous species of birds, squirrels, hedgehogs, badgers and if you are lucky even some foxes.

We will also visit the Venetian tower from the 1400s.

At the end of the walk in the company vineyards we will taste a selection of our best wines paired with typical local products.

The Prà company uses only ORGANIC cultivation methods, without using pesticides and herbicides, resorting to mechanical cutting of the grass and also carrying out the harvest exclusively by hand.
