The farmhouse holiday is managed by Vimercati Castellini family, who has agricultural traditions from XVIIth century and it is one of the first farms in Franciacorta. It was opened in 1996. Now, it is managed by Gianluigi Vimercati Castellini, his sister Francesca, who is responsible of the reception, their father Giovanni, who attends to the wine farm and their mother Daniela Mantovani who takes care of the cooking.
The production of Franciacorta wines is the main activity of our farm. We use our noble and traditional grapes, which are cultivating directly on the gentle hills of Franciacorta.
Our farmhouse offers the possibility to stay in rooms or flats, which are very comfortable. They are situated in the central part of the farm and in an old and renovated cottage in the middle of vineyards.
Our farmhouse “Al Rocol” offers different solutions of hospitality for example a tasting of delicious food or a full lunch. We are always ready to offer hospitality to new Italian and foreign guests, who can taste wines d.o.c. and d.o.c.g., extra virgin olive oil, grappa, honey, walnut liqueur or local dishes. So, you can have an opportunity of escape and rediscovery a rural forgotten world.
