Collina d’Illasi white berry vineyards

Our vineyards of white grapes, located in the hilly area of Illasi, have a history of almost 70 years. They are the first vineyards of the Sabaini family, planted by our great-grandfather, in the village of Illasi, in the province of Verona, at an altitude of about 175 meters, facing north-east and south. These lands are just a few meters away, on the right bank of the river Progno d’Illasi. Commonly known as the Progno, it rises between the rocky walls of the Carega Group and crosses no fewer than seven municipalities along its 35 km-long course. The climate of this valley is temperate, and in the past, it was mostly characterized by drought and low rainfall, which is why it was called Valsecca Precipitation tends to be concentrated in the autumn and spring, when the river Progno rises, causing considerable devastation. Our Collina d’Illasi vineyards are the highest in the Soave DOC area, at 175 meters above sea level, and border the last Soave zone with the Valpolicella zone. LAND/CLIMATE The Collina d’Illasi vineyards are located in the village of Illasi. They are 175 meters above sea level and face north-east.

Musella Oasis Vineyard

Oasi Musella is a natural park located in San Martino Buon Albergo, in the province of Verona, considered one of the most extraordinary landscape complexes in the Veneto Region. Thanks to its more than 300 hectares, it offers a remarkable biodiversity characterized by forests, streams, vineyards, olive groves, churches, and housing, making it a unique natural park. Walking along the paths of the Musella, you will notice that the forest is mainly made up of shrubs and low trees, due to the shallow nature of the ground and the deforestation that took place during the Second World War to provide wood. The Oasis houses an aristocratic villa that belonged to the Muselli family of Verona, to whom the Oasis owes its name. They were the owners and promoters of transforming the rural residence into a summer residence between 1600 and 1700. The 16th-century farmhouse has been transformed into a stately residence through the complete renovation of the exterior of the garden, with a 17th-century Italian-style aviary and several fountains, and the interior of the villa’s most representative rooms. The Muselli family had to abandon the property in 1861, when Marquise Matilde Muselli inherited her husband’s debts and the entire estate was sold at auction. The work was completed in later periods. So, we had to wait until the middle of the 19th century to learn about the winemaking tradition in this area, started by the inspired and passionate Cesare Trezza of Musella. The knight Luigi Trezza succeeded in acquiring it and asked the architect Giacomo Franco to complete the restoration of the villa begun by the Musellis. Many styles can be seen in the villa, from the neo-Romanesque, neo-Gothic, and arabesque elements in the oratory and bell tower, to the neo-Renaissance in the west, characterized by twelve statues of Roman
