Gaggioli and Borgo delle Vigne

Grown during the years around the ancient small group of houses behind the ancient castle of Zola, the agritourism 'Borgo delle Vigne' is placed on the farm 'Bagazzana': formerly in possession of the Nonantola Abbey monks who, circa 1000 A.D., used to get the best wine for their tables there.

In 1250 the free commune of Bologna decided that the ‘Wine Road’ would have passed through these hills. So it became possible to bring safely into the city the grapes entrusted to the Brentatori corporation. The harmonious and natural landscape that during the Renaissance inspired Francesco Francia, the goldsmith and painter originating from these lands, has been kept intact up to now . This has been possible thanks to the work of generations of farmers and wine-growers, capable of enhancing the products and customs of the territory, such as wines, vegetables, fruits, meat and bakery products that are at the base of the area typical and genuine cooking.

The Gaggioli family, who has been working these lands for nearly forty years, not only dedicates itself to the wine production, but also to a modern agritourism immersed in the greenery of a hill a few minutes by car from Bologna and the main motorways. There are fifteen beds in both double and single rooms: the kind of accommodation offered is very wide. Moreover, a big kitchen is at the disposal of banquets, parties and company lunches with traditional menus based on typical products. There is also a sales point.
Borgo delle Vigne represents the ideal base for excursions on foot (CAI paths and naturalistic itineraries), by horse, motorbike and mountain bike.
