Construction of the villa began around 1735 under the Fattori family, on the same wing as an existing 16th-century wine cellar and on the original site of an ancient arusnate settlement which later became a settlement from the Roman period. It was then sold, unfinished, to Mosconi in 1769, who completed the estate by adding an eight hectare English-style Romantic garden. He also expanded the wine business. During the Mosconi period, the villa became an important intellectual and literary salon, frequented by cultural figures, including the poet, Ippolito Pindemonte. By the first half of the 20th century, the villa had suffered years of neglect and vandalism. Parts of the garden and some of its rooms fell into complete disrepair. In 1953, it was bought and restored by the Bertani family to house the headquarters of their eponymous wine cellar.
The complex consists of a main building with two lower advancing wings, ending in two symmetrical facades. The bell tower of the chapel, dedicated to St. Gaetano, is built on the east wing. Gates on both wings grant access to the laborers’ housing and the cellars. Commissioned by the first owner of the estate Giacomo Fattori, the construction of the entire complex —consisting of the central structure of the villa, the chapel and cellars— was originally designed by the architect Lodovico Perini and completed in the first half of the 18th century by the Veronese Adriano Cristofali. Fattori ordered the construction to replace an existing 16th-century residence.

Villa Mosconi Bertani Reviews
Amarone wijn wordt op een speciale manier gemaakt. Door een "fout" bij de bereiding van zoete wijn onstond de Amarone wijn. Deze "fout" werd hier op Mosconi gemaakt, hier werd dus de Amarone geboren. ... more »Amarone wine is made in a special way. By an "error" in the preparation of sweet wine the Amarone wine arose. This "mistake" was made here on Mosconi, so the Amarone was born. Unfortunately, the winemaker is sold to a pharmaceutical company and the soul has disappeared. The tour was not finished and the tasting was done via PowerPoint and a reading list. The soul has disappeared what rest is marketing. Two young girls did this tour and tasting, they read some of their list. Well, nothing to the detriment of young people but it would be nice if they knew some of it too. Guided tour without drinking 9 euros, with wine 22 euros pp. Och you try to get some out. Also when we left and nothing bought they didn't know. Simple Classico wine started at €29 Amarone at €67. Better you can go to Vigneti Ettore
A lovely visit on a cloudy day which made trip easier to do. Our guide who spoke English was very pleasant and we loved the selection of wine! more »
A beautiful place. Really nice tour and the wine tasting was nice as well. The wines are really good. Would definitely recommend a visit.
A wonderful place and an even better wine! I would definitely recommend the degustation of wine: we drank very fine wines and were provided interesting insights on each of them!
