The first building that attracts the visitor’s attention is certainly the ancient wine cellar that has been recently restored.
An architectural jewel, it is an example of how avant-garde the place was. Since it could not be placed underground due to the fact that the land was already beneath sea level, a set of chimneys was installed to capture the fresh breezes and help recreate the microclimate suitable for making wine.
This is the first point of contact, where one can begin to grasp the incredible evolution of the estate and of agriculture itself undergone over time. Three videos, projected in the ancient barrel cellar, illustrate the history of Ca’ Corniani.
