It's a poetic image by Albino Piona and his family, that has been growing grapevines and has been producing white, red and rosé wines in the heart of Custoza area since before the Unity of Italy.
Albino, “wine craftsman” as he defines himself, follows personally his “paintings”, that are his wines, from the first sprouts on the grapevines, to the harvest, to the wine-making and to the final bottling. He follows this all with great respect towards the tradition, but at the same time taking constantly care of the new technologies and possible improvements by applying modern techniques.
The show room is a sort of “Naturarte” space for thepublic. The bottles are in view, the barrels, vine shoots and grapes are used as nature design, between the cultural ferments of works of art, theatre, music that re-echo in this space. Passion gets mixed up with passion, Bacchus and the Muses together infuse high temperature to the show room Naturarte.

Sets-up and artistic exposition by Monica Piona
You can visit the exhibition until the 31rst October . With free entry.
The appointment of 6th September closes the artistic cycle “Art in the winery 2014” with an eye to the Marmomacc fair,that will take place in Verona from the 24th to the 27th September. Now in its 49^ edition, the international Fair of Marble, Design and Technology, is not just a leader event for marble, but it is also a cultural studio for global trends in constructions and design. Our exposition wants to be a sort of preview for the infinite expressive potentialities of marble and bronze, materials that obtain lightness or solidity, movement or static nature despite their initial shapeless nature. As usual, we introduce the artists during opening evenings of meetings and confrontations. Artists who introduce themselves, art that meets wine; we want to invite you to join us in a natural context, enjoying special evenings. Stop by our winery, we will be happy to let you discover our wines: the guided tours with tastings continue during the whole year inside the exhibition space.
