Cascina Moroni

Growing a vineyard in the city center is more than an agricultural practice, it is a tribute to nature and the local community. Valmarina embraces the vision of the Urban Vineyard Association, transforming urban spaces into oases of biodiversity. Our vineyards not only offer a picturesque and unexpected landscape but also play a crucial role in reducing the carbon footprint, promoting local production, and enhancing the territory. Valmarina, a property of the Conti Moroni, an ancient noble family from Bergamo, is immersed in a millennial context with medieval monuments that enhance its visual beauty. Its vines extend to the city's edge and on the other side delve into the woods, bringing us back to the uniqueness of the genius loci and reminding us to protect the health of our planet.

With the Valmarina vineyards project, we pursue a historical legacy that we cultivate in a contemporary dimension, where the countryside and the adjoining city coexist harmoniously. A primary part of the project lies in the commitment to protecting this unique place. Almost half of the vineyards are resistant species that require reduced treatments, while all are managed with environmentally friendly agricultural practices. The goal is to preserve biodiversity, reduce environmental impact, and produce high-quality wines sustainably.
The project integrates a pedestrian and cycling route that crosses the vineyards and the picturesque area of chestnut woods. This path offers tourists the chance to enjoy the beauty of the landscapes, understand the cultural and historical richness, and actively explore the vineyard following the natural cycles of the vineyard in its different seasonal phases.
The project promotes cultural and rural tourism, encouraging visitors to immerse themselves in the territory's history with guided tours that, in addition to including artistic monuments, address the issues of land cultivation starting with the first clearing works of the Benedictine monks during the Middle Ages and continuing with those who over the centuries have followed in the
cultivation of the land and finally arriving at the considered changes brought by modern mechanization in agriculture.

In addition to the cultural side, the project also embraces green tourism with walks in the pristine nature of the forest and the rediscovery of the large meadows surrounding the monastery, probably the last historic stable meadows still present in the city of Bergamo.
The project includes events related to cycling, local culture, and of course wine, with tastings and a harvest festival. The project also includes a sales point that will be opened along Via Ramera and dedicated to the sale of local products, contributing to the economic development of the territory and supporting farmers, local producers, and small entrepreneurs linked to the food and wine sector.
