Passito & Grana, why not?


A magical village for a unique encounter

A magical village for a unique encounter
The Volta Mantovana exhibition is one of the most important exhibitions in the sector in Italy and offers a broad overview of the finest Italian dessert wines.
A magical village where all the eras have left precious testimonies: the frescoed rooms and the decorated ceilings, the King's bathroom, the suggestive Italian gardens, the ancient stables with the Warriors gallery and the street that connects the Palace, to the Towers and the Belvedere della Chiesa, paved with morainic pebbles, which will host the market for Italian dessert wines and typical local products.
Passito & Grana, why not?
The review represents a point of reference for producers of high quality wines which, this year, will be over 100 from all over Italy!
A great label, of course, must be paired with a great cheese! Our Grana Padano dei Prati Stabili will in fact be present in many tastings and you can find it at the stand of the Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori Mantovani.
