Description
Prenota o regala

The Giampiero Borghetti winery, located in Castelrotto in the municipality of San Pietro in Cariano, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area, offers not only excellent wines but also a unique experience of staying in an authentic wine resort. Our historic home, Casa Fraccaroli, which began producing wines as early as 1790, is now a landmark for those seeking an authentic Valpolicella tasting experience.

Casa Fraccaroli, which has always remained in the family, is now under the ownership of Giampiero, the direct heir of the Fraccaroli family. The winery's history saw a major leap forward in the 1980s, when Lisetta and Paolo Borghetti, Giampiero's parents, built the new winery, the place where winemaking still takes place today.

In 2022, Giampiero set up a new reception area directly in the winery, transforming it into a scenic stage decorated with precious artistic mosaics, perfect for Valpolicella wine tastings. This winery is not only a place of production, but a real wine resort, where guests can fully immerse themselves in the world of wine.

In addition, our wine resort is associated with a bistro and relais located in the old family villa, under the name Castrum, in memory of the ancient fortress that stood until the 15th century on the top of the hill. Here, guests can enjoy the unique experience of "sleeping in the cellar," staying in elegantly furnished rooms that reflect the history and winemaking tradition of our family.

Today, our winery produces typical Valpolicella red wines, plus two original IGTs as well as a sweet red passito. We offer two lines of labels: one linked to the Giampiero Borghetti winery, ideal for wine lovers looking for an authentic Valpolicella tasting experience, and the other under the name Castrum, dedicated to the works of the neoclassical sculptor Innocenzo Fraccaroli, Giampiero's ancestor and born right in Casa Fraccaroli.
