Corte Madonnina farm holidays

Corte Madonnina farm holidays in Ferrara, Pomposa Abbey visit Wine and history Established in 1988, the farm Corte Madonnina, is located in one of the most scenic areas of Emilia Romagna: Bosco Eliceo. We are inside the Parco Regionale Delta del Po, a magical place, characterized by sand dunes, oak forests, valleys and salt marshes.

The vineyards play an important role here, not only because they are among the few that survived the phylloxera plague, but also for its proximity to the Abbey of Pomposa, one of the most impressive Romanesque church of the Italian artistic heritage. Watching the green leaves surround the ancient abbey, built in the ninth century, is amazing: art and nature coexist creating a wonderful picture. And if we add to this the traditional dishes of Ferrara that can be tasted in the restaurant, accompanied by a good glass of wine of the Bosco Eliceo DOC, the experience is priceless.

Philosophy and style of the wines

Fortana bounces, the wines of the sands. A vineyard that survived the phylloxera Fortana's clusters The production is small and artisanal and the 11 hectares of land are devoted to historical grapes of the DOC Bosco Eliceo, such as Fortana Russiola, Trebbiano, Malvasia and Sauvignon. The wines are smooth, classic, interpreted with originality and a good technique, but without losing sight of the uniqueness that characterizes the famous wines of the sands: freshness, drinkability and intensity of scents are the words with which it’s natural to describe the wines of the Corte Madonnina winery.
