Over a century ago, Giulio Ferrari changed the history of sparkling wine by pioneering the very first Champagne-method wines using Chardonnay in Italy. When Giulio entrusted his Trento winery to beloved friend Bruno Lunelli in 1952, the family devoted themselves to upholding the sacred tradition.
Today, the Lunelli family continues to helm the historic institution, devoted to fine wine making and fine art appreciation. During this Day of Bello and Buono, or the "Day of Goodness and Beauty," you will plunge into the world of Ferrari and the Lunelli family at Cantine Ferrari and Locanda Margon in Trento. This enchanting journey begins with your arrival at the cantina, where you are be greeted by the sculpture "Centenarium Ferrari," a masterpiece by the world-famous artist Arnaldo Pomodoro standing proudly at the entrance of the winery.
The 1-hour private tour of the winery will begin where the juice is stored from Ferrari's 500 hand-selected producers, then continues into a museum dedicated to the original methods of Giulio Ferrari. You will also visit the cellar where thousands of bottles of Trento DOC are aged for two to 10 years while undergoing the process of remuage/riddling until the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes from the Trentino hills is transformed into an effervescent golden wine.
The tour ends with a toast with a flute of one of the most renowned Ferrari wines before you head to the family's nearby Michelin-starred restaurant, Locanda Margon. You will have the pleasure of enjoying the Menu Bollicine, a five-course gourmet menu with regional dishes which incorporate, are inspired by, and are paired with Ferrari Trento DOC sparkling wines. After a leisurely three-hour lunch, you will head to historic Villa Margon, whose historic frescoes and sixteenth century architecture perfectly displays the marriage of fine wine and fine art.
