Nino Negri Winery

Founded in 1897, the Nino Negri Winery is a reference point for wine growing of Valtellina. In the heart of the small village of Chiuro, for over a century the winery has been producing elegant and refined wines, with attention to the uniqueness of the individual vineyards. Held within the walls of the ancient Quadrio Castle, the cellar offers visitors the opportunity to discover the fascinating aging rooms connected to each other by underground corridors that run under Chiuro. The historic vineyards of the property are organized on steep terraces, supported by dry stone walls, literally torn from the rock of the mountain. For wine tourists (with reservations) there’s the opportunity to enjoy different wine experiences: a “classic”, lasting 90 minutes, includes a visit to the cellar tasting 4 wines; the “special” (2 hours) enriched with a journey through the ancient walls and a tasting from the barrels to discover the mountain Nebbiolo; the “exclusive” (4 hours) takes visitors to the Ca’ Guicciardi farmhouse and to the vineyards for a spectacular tasting among dry stone walls protected by Unesco, a symbol of heroic viticulture.
