My Land, the Euganean Hills Park
Unspoiled countryside a few miles from the City of Padua. Landscapes of charm in an unusual up and down of conical hills, of volcanic origin, that suddenly emerge from the Veneto plain. This area, the Euganean Hills, mostly due to its geological origin and morphology of the mountains, is characterized by the presence, in a relatively small area, of many different microclimates. Here you will meet the Mediterranean Maquis and the typical mountain environment. Here you may find the Dwarf Prickly Pear that has colonized the arid and rugged area of Monte Ceva, and that is typical of Mediterranean areas, while a few kilometers away, in the undergrowth of chestnut trees, proliferates the Martagon Lily, that was once widespread in all nearby plains. The many microclimates, present among the hills and depressions, allow olive growing, already exploited in Roman times, and the presence of truffles in the woods of downy oak. Right because of such specificity and variety of fauna and flora these is a protected area preserved by the “Ente Parco dei Colli Euganei” (Park of the Euganean Hills). Our vineyards, the winery and our home are within this protected area.
