HISTORY

THE VILLA WAS PLANNED AND BUILT IN THE 16TH CENTURY BY ARCHITECT ANDREA PALLADIO. THE FAMILY OF THE COUNTS OF SAN BONIFACIO, AFTER WHICH THE PROPERTY WAS NAMED, DATES BACK TO 959 AD. COUNT MILONE OF SAN BONIFACIO, THE FOUNDER OF THE FAMILY, HELD THE IMPERIAL SEAL OF THE SACRED ROMAN EMPIRE. OF FRANK-SALIAN ORIGINS, HE LED HIS NAMESAKE FEUD, WHICH LASTED AFTER HIS DEATH FOR ABOUT 1000 YEARS. HE GROUNDED HIS RULE ON CHIVALRY PRINCIPLES, SUCH AS HONOR, GLORY AND JUSTICE. THIS LAND WITNESSED MANY WARS AND BATTLES, BUT THE DOMINION OF THE FAMILY OVER VERONA AND NORTH EASTERN ITALY LASTED FOR MANY CENTURIES. THE PROPERTY STILL BELONGS TO A HEIR OF THE FAMILY OF THE COUNTS OF SAN BONIFACIO. THE FAMILY IS OF VERONESE ORIGINS. IT INSPIRED WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE FOR ONE OF HIS MOST POPULAR CHARACTERS: JULIET. IT ALSO INSPIRED VERDI’S FIRST WORK, THE “OBERTO CONTE DI SAN BONIFACIO”. ALSO DANTE,THE GREAT POET, IN HIS DIVINE COMEDY, CELEBRATES CUNIZZA DA ROMANO, WIFE OF COUNT RIZZARDO OF SAN BONIFACIO. CENTURIES LATER, DANTE’S OWN DESCENDANT, THE COUNTESS MARIALENA SEREGO ALIGHIERI, WOULD BE JOINED IN MARRIAGE TO COUNT MILONE XII.

IT IS FROM THIS LAND AND FROM THIS PROPERTY THAT WE DRAW OUR STRENGTH. THE WINE WE PRODUCE COMES FROM OUR VINEYARDS, BUT IT SPRINGS FROM OUR PASSION FOR OUR HISTORY AND TRADITIONS. WE DO EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER TO KEEP THESE TRADITIONS ALIVE AND WE LOVE SHARING THEM WITH OUR GUESTS.
