Meet Niccolò Rossi di Montelera, the Owner of Torre a Cona
Torre a Cona has been in our family for many generations and, since childhood, I felt a special connection with the estate. In the last several years, our family restructured the various farmhouses and barns into apartments in order to be able to share our love of this place and of the area with our guests.
Our love for Torre a Cona, as well as the satisfaction our guests have expressed, has led to restructuring the main villa as well, which will hopefully be open in a few years.
We are deeply committed to the production of the estate’s wines and of our estate extra-virgin olive oil: we are happy to offer tastings of all to both our guests as well as the general public.
Year after year, I enjoy hearing the satisfaction, enjoyment and love that our guests end up feeling for the estate and their holidays spent at Torre a Cona. This, in turn, makes us happy, especially as many of our guests end up returning year after year many and become friends.
