The family’s love and respect for the land is evident in their quest to maintain the integrity and sustainability of the soil on which they were raised and the winemaking traditions their ancestors passed down to them. The Lanzavecchia family welcomes visitors to the Tenuta Cappallotto guesthouse – the ideal place to taste Villadoria wines – originally a hunting-lodge which belonged to the House of Savoy.
