Before to be a winery, Villa Calicantus is a dream, a dream made of passion, respect and love for our land: through a strict organic approach in the vineyards, we are able to produce a “vin de garde” in Le Bardolino, an appellation where typically only wines for immediate consumption are produced. The Villa Calicantus's vineyards are located in Calmasino, in the heart of the Bardolino Classico appellation, on one of the highest hills just 2km south-west of Lake Garda. We work in organic agriculture in order to have our vines in condition to give healthy and balanced grapes for the production of a great wine. For this reason we have substituted pesticides and other chemical products with natural products and left grass and flowers enrich the vineyards. With reservation, we organize guided tours which include: - a walk in the vineyards on the hill overlooking the lake with an explanation of our philosophy; - wine tasting directly from the barriques in our 1840's cellar; - tasting of the Villa Calicantus millésime 2011 from the bottle, with some local cheeses.
