Prime Alture Wine Resort

In 2006 Roberto has the opportunity to visit the Oltrepò Pavese and remains so fascinated to convince his wife Anna in tranforming the old Cascina Campone and the surrounding lands in to a fine winery with 6 charming rooms, a true oasis of rural stay where to host their dearest friends and a small number of guests.

The Resort combines the charm of the location with the enhancement of a simple and healthy lifestyle, not forgetting the taste for beautiful things.

The common areas include a large panoramic lounge set in the old barn, a large terrace where you can admire the sunset, an aromatic vegetable garden and a scenic swimming pool with garden.

And yet, while you’ll need a car to get around, you are surrounded by picturesque medieval villages, castles, fortresses and patrician houses, but also by a nature that invites walks in the woods, hiking and trekking. The Unesco town of Pavia is 27km away while Milan is 67km.
