The minerality of the earth appears
Cà Rovere is located in the small town of Alonte (Vicenza), a village of 1,600 inhabitants of ancient pre-Roman origins, nestled in the woods of the Berici Hills.
The lush wild forests alternate with the geometries of the vine rows and dry-stone walls, in a succession of beautiful landscapes and unexpected views.
The local vineyards are safeguarded by the Denomination of Origin (DOC) of the Colli Berici and Vicentini.
The subsoil of the Berici Hills, rich in limestone of marine origin, has been traditionally used to extract the White Stone which is still worked in the local quarries.
This precious material was employed for centuries in the construction of sumptuous palaces in Venice.
On our territory, the Berica Stone is recognizable in the columns of the Palladian villas, in the facades of the rustic manors and in the churches and hermitages scattered throughout these hills - rich in charm, yet still out of the mass tourist routes.
