La Cantina - The Winery Which, in the XIX° century, hosted the 'big kitchen' for the noble Feltrinelli family, is today a most welcoming Wine cellar/Tavern where 200 selected wines rest. They are only disturbed for tasting.
Wine tastings are accompanied by the flavors of our traditional products such as cold meats and cheeses which marvellously accompany not only soft and elegant aged wines, but also younger ones. The tavern in Villa Sostaga is our bread and salame corner, where hours gladly run in the company of happy and carefree wine.
"Deep joys of wine, who among us has not known you? Who has not felt remorse to calm, a memory to conjure, a sorrow to drown, a castle to build in the clouds – all have invoked you, mysterious god hidden in the fibers of the vine. How grand are the acts brought forth by wine, as though we were illuminated by an inner sun! How true, how burning is the second youth man draws from it!
Yet how formidable are its searing raptures and its draining enchantments. And yet: say, in your soul and conscience judges, lawmakers, men of the world, you whose happiness leaves you gentle, whose fortune makes virtue and health a thing of trifling ease – say: who among you would have the pitiless courage to condemn those who drink genius?"
(Interlude, Artificial paradises, Charles Baudelaire)
The restaurant of Villa Sostaga offers its guests a selection of about 200 among foreign and Italian wines. We have chosen each wine with great care, selecting the best productors as well as the best vintages.
It will be our pleasure to help you in your wine choice to help you experience the best match of food and wine.
