FacebookVilla di Maser wines

 

The Villa di Maser (Villa Barbaro) is one of the greatest masterpieces of Andrea Palladio (1508-80), and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is situated in the middle of a flourishing estate whose Historic Winery produces wines of great quality.

 

Open all year round, it maintains the fascinating character of a home where the owners still live and work, and during the many events staged, its beauty and magic atmosphere can be enjoyed throughout the changing seasons.

 

Climbing roses, wisteria, and bignonia adorn the entrance courtyard and welcome visitors to the villa.

 

The visit continues inside with the six rooms with frescoes by Paolo Veronese, which represent his largest and most important fresco works and from where one can see the Ninfaeum with stuccoes by Alessandro Vittoria.

 

 

A short walk through the vineyards leads to the carriage collection which contains some thirty exhibits of forms of transport from past centuries.

 

 

After the tour it is possible to have a winetasting or light lunch, or to buy the estate wines, local produce or souvenirs from the wine and gift shop.

 

NOTICE

The carriage collection is momentarily closed
