The villa is an ”agriturismo” which means a private house with apartments/rooms for guest rental.

Our main occupation is wine production from our vineyards here in San Marzano Oliveto and Agliano Terme, in our private society La Mano Verde s.r.l. (“the green hand”). We produce biologic-DOC/DOCG and NIZZA classified red wines from Barbera grapes (Barbera d’Asti). Our wines has been recommended as top-10 barbera wines by independent wine magazines. Our cantina is located at our other agriturismo Cascina del Rosone in Agliane Terme, only 10 minutes away by car.

The facilities in Villa Vigneto include a locked car-parking area, large swimming pool, indoor portico area with self- service beverages, free internet in common area and a guest barbeque.
