Wine tasting at Opera 02

Beautiful place – Amazing food and wine


Opera 02 Modena

Nowadays Facebook is helping
out a lot to organize weekends with its event sharing program. This time we
came across to the wine tasting event at the Opera 02 of Castelvetro in Modena
for a very cheap price. We have already been to their restaurant couple of
times and we know their prices are little bit higher (equal to the offered
service though) compared to others, so we thought it was a great opportunity to
spend some good time in a wonderful place without spending too much of money.
Plus we have tasted their
Malbo wine during our last dinner there which was really fantastic then why not
trying the other types???
While going for dinners we have
never been able to capture the most of its beauty, and the last time I have
promised myself to return back during the day time. So here we go! In fact I
was right, the views were breath-taking, the vineyards and the rolling hills
around give to Opera 02 an additional touch. We are sure this place becomes a
must especially in autumn when the surrounding grapevine turns into red or
yellow.

The winery tour with the
owner’s son was interesting; he gave us some information about the producing
procedures. They produce three types of wines and two of them are Lambrusco.
Their factory is very small and they produce only organic wines, means no use
of chemical additives. They do export wine abroad but still their distribution
is not ample. In fact they are now suppling to Russia, United Stated and Japan
only. The difficulty in reaching more countries seems due to the price,
especially when it comes to Lambrusco most of the people out of Modena,
consider it as a cheap wine so they hardly pay 50 or 60 dollars per bottle,
(retail price). This is a big obstacle of their way and this price barrier
could be really a very big problem when it comes to Lambrusco. They are
handling better with the Malbo one. Opera 02 is just 15 minutes’ drive from
Modena and 10 minutes’ drive from Maranello, so definitely worth a visit
if you are up to the Ferrari Museum. They also offer hotel services, in fact
they have
eight rooms
where sleeping peacefully. It is not only the attractive setting but also the
style within, very contemporary decor with the pool vanishing into the
vineyards. We really enjoyed this pleasant evening.

    I love Lambrusco! Indeed is considered as a cheap wine in Italy, but I believe there are some special bottles like these ones!
