Corte d’Aibo is situated at approximately 20kms from Bologna
and at the centre of the Parco Regionale dell’Abbazia.
The visitor is attracted to the area by the wonderful views over endless vineyards, wheatfields and fruit orchards, where agricolture and unspoilt nature are in harmony with the gentle hills.
The red coloured buildings stand out from the green of the vines, the main house dating back to the 16th century was originally a fortified tower and was later transformed into a convent as can be seen by the vaulted ceiling and the numerous cubby holes in the thick walls.
The land called d’Aibo was already mentioned in ancient scriptures dating back to the year 500 ad. These tell of how the monks living in the monastry at Monteveglio bought several plots of land in the area called Aibo vineyard and therefore prove that winemaking in this area was already a reality such a long time ago.
At the end of the 1980’s the farm was bought by a group of young
winemakers who with painstaking dedication restored the existing vines, planted new high intensity ones and built a new wine cellar thus enhancing this wonderful area.
