The villa can only be visited externally. Instead, it is possible to visit Pojega's garden. The estate is property of Guerrieri Rizzardi wineries. Only part of the wine production takes place here, but in the beautiful store made out of the ancient stables, you will find all the wines of the variegated Guerrieri Rizzardi portfolio for tasting.

Villa Rizzardi

The building is positioned on the eastern side of the wide Negrar valley, with a south-west orientation, and is a landmark element harmoniously inserted in the landscape.
The Counts Rizzardi bought the estate in 1649. The villa was completely renovated between 1868 and 1870 on a project of the architect Filippo Messedaglia.

Villa Rizzardi is a typical example of eclectic style of the second half of 1800. Various elements of the Italian architectural tradition blend, with a general neoclassical setting, the battlements reminiscent of Venetian Gothic and decorations inspired by Renaissance and Baroque motifs.

Pojega Garden

The garden of Pojega was designed between 1783 and 1796 by Luigi Trezza, the author of the restoration of the famous Giusti Garden in Verona. The work was recognized as so valuable and prestigious that it resisted, substantially unchanged, to the complete renovation of Villa Rizzardi a century later.

Guerrieri Rizzardi Wineries

In 1913 Carlo Rizzardi married Giuseppina Guerrieri, a descendant of the Guerrieri family, owners of vineyards and wineries in the area of Bardolino on Lake Garda since the 15th century. Thus was born the Guerrieri Rizzardi winery, a fusion of the two properties in Valpolicella and Bardolino. In the 1970's they acquired vineyards and cellar in the Soave Classico area, further enlarging the labels in the list which includes the main types of Veronese wines.
