Wine Bank

You only have to cross the main piazza in Pollenzo and walk down to the Wine Bank in the Agenzia cellars to discover a magical world in which the finest Italian wines, selected by a commission of experts, are housed in conditions that ensure perfect ageing. More than 100,000 bottles are stored in wooden crates in the many vaulted rooms. The Wine Bank staff organizes guided visits, tastings and many other themed activities designed to convey the delicate rapport that exists between terroir, vinification techniques and culture and the wines themselves. Ask our staff for information and bookings.
