Villa Rizzardi - Pojega Gardens

Villa Rizzardi - Pojega Gardens

The Pojega estate in Negrar, in the heart of the Valpolicella, has belonged to the Rizzardi counts since 1649.

The property’s showpiece is its wonderful garden, designed by Luigi Trezza, who was commissioned by Count Antonio Rizzardi (1742-1808). The park covers an area of 54 thousand square meters of hills and plains, with an Italianate garden, a romantic garden and an extraordinary “teatro di verzura” or outdoor theater – the site of cultural events – with seven rows of boxwood risers, as well as cypresses and niches in hornbeam.

Villa Rizzardi overlooks the garden: built in 1870 to a design by architect Filippo Messedaglia, today the villa hosts events and receptions.

This property is part of the larger Borgo Bardolino complex, 25 kilometers from Negrar, which includes Ristorante Munus, set in the old wine cellars, a wine bar and a few shops located in historical buildings.

All’interno del In the Borgo, guests can stay in elegant apartments furnished with antiques. The Guerrieri Rizzardi winery and agricultural estate are also open for guided visits.
