History

The vineyard takes its name from the large manor house that is still located a stone’s throw from the vines. In 1700, the estate was owned by Abbot Bartolomeo Lorenzi, while in the 1970s it had become a renowned restaurant. In the early 2000s, the Allegrini Family reclaimed the neglected land, transforming it into one of the most important vineyards in Valpolicella.
