The story


Twentyfive years ago Adolfo and Emma Turlon decided to begin a long trip among the tastes and the typical flavour of their places, the land born from Colli Euganei. Since the family Turlon manages the Weinstube Colle Berta, they rigorously pay attention to the tradition and use only typical wines D.o.c., that its are very distant from the industrial mega-productions and from the chemical pesticidis that have contaminated the ancient art of the wine. From the care of the land, from the love for the vineyard every year the good wines Turlon are born , entirely sold in the Weinstube, to preserve its famous exclusiveness. And also the personnel connects again him to the tradition: they will be the children of Adolfo and Emma, children of this trip, to serve you and to accompany you in your voyage enogastronomico, with the preparation and the gentleness that it traditionally countersigns this family, been born to the slopes of the hills.
