A dual passion:
vineyards and horses

The philosophy we have always
ridden is that of cultivating
thoroughbred wines

The history of Vill’Arquata has its roots in prehistoric times, when a great glaciation held Franciacorta in a grip of frost, and glaciers pushed the debris of the mountains downwards, which, then, over the centuries, became the morainic soil of our vineyards. This makes it a special land that is particularly suited to the cultivation of vines.
Every year, our Chardonnay grapes offer us the opportunity to produce precious and special wines, which are thus not only the result of the peculiar geological history of our land, but also of the rich wine tradition that has been handed down here for many generations. 

From passion for horses
came the sports club
“La Barbatella”

Our passion for horses led us to establishing our own stables in the beautiful setting of Vill’Arquata.
Our riding school is managed by the La Barbatella Sports Association, and is frequented by riders training for national and international show jumping competitions.
In our stables, we take utmost care of various competition horses. Every one of our equine guests has a large box to rest and sleep in.

The ideal environment for humans and horses to cultivate their age-old friendship

For the well-being of both horses and riders at Vill’Arquata, we have a dedicated outdoor field, covered riding stable, a sand-covered circuit, a treadmill, infra-red lamps, a club-house and apartments for athletes and grooms.

We, therefore, offer an ample for athletes and horses to train, perfect their sport and ready themselves to face the next competition together.
