A place steeped in history and stories. A land with a great vocation for winemaking. This is our Valpantena.
Bordering the plateau of the Lessini Mountains in the north, the valley extends southward for 30 km, opening towards the plain in the direction of the city of Verona.
The valley is characterized by considerable temperature variations between day and night, by prolonged exposure to the sun, and by the presence of a light, constant breeze.
The typical soil of the area is scaglia, or scaja: not very good for farming, but perfect for grapevines, whose roots grow deep down to absorb minerals and precious substances.
Costa Arente 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 are 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.
