Respect for its roots and the rediscovery of its past, these are the principles that have always been at the core of the philosophy of Cantine Lvnae and now find new expression in CA’ LVNAE as the cornerstone of the future. Ca’ Lvnae is an ancient, eighteenth century complex, alongside the ancient Via Aurelia, restored with respect for the layout and the materials, reflecting a philosophy and a passion that are deeply rooted in the territory.
The idea of Paolo Bosoni, founder and moving spirit of the Cantine Lvnae, was to create a centre of research, development and reception where wine, gourmet food and wine, and art could exist in harmony and be given a voice. A place designed to house his ideas on life, work and nature. Respect for the past without nostalgia, enlivened by new ideas as the starting point of any future actions.
The spirit of Ca’ Lvnae
Cantine Lvnae is the heart and reception centre of Cantine Lvnae. The place where individual expressions are brought together and integrated, thereby creating a complete circuit of gourmet wine and food. For this reason, Ca’ Lvnae is a place of production and selection of the local gastronomic panorama, completing a circle that offers the option of discovering and tasting the wine and food of a place of excellence.
The meeting between Lvnae wines, liqueurs and the products of the Essentiae workshop, the production and selection of Ca’ Lvnae takes place on the premises and in the gardens of the ancient country house.
The collection of buildings that make up CA’ LVNAE is the reflection of a philosophy and a history deeply rooted in the territory. Indeed, these types of buildings formed the typical rural complex of historic Lunigiana and were very probably built on existing structures in the middle of the eighteenth century for a purpose still visible today: the stable and the barn above, the cellar, the dwellings of the country folk, the yard, the vegetable garden with a chicken coop, a well for agricultural and livestock use.
In buildings carefully recovered and restored by the architect Tiziano Lera, with complete respect for the layouts and materials that characterised their history, the rooms were designed for various functions and activities: the Wine Shop, the Tasting Room, the Distillery, the Museum of the Material Culture of Wine, as well as the Vegetable Garden, the Aroma Garden, the Vineyard etc.
