More about today’s guest
Costa Arènte is located in the village of Romagnano at an elevation of 250 meters above sea level, surrounded by vineyards on three sides. From the farmhouse, a 35-hectare estate with 17 hectares planted with the Verona Pergola and Guyot training systems, one’s gaze wanders across the landscapes of the Valpantena and among the peaks of the Lessini Mountains. For the local people, we are “La Costa”, which means “the hillside” in the local dialect and refers to the most valuable plots of land. The article “La” – “The” – is a seal of quality, because this hill is a benchmark for the entire area. Over the years, while passing through the traditions and agricultural transformations of the area, La Costa has always maintained a great rural vocation for the bounty of its land and its strategic position. If it could talk, who knows what tales the old mulberry tree would tell as it looks over the valley from the main farmyard.
