The Agriturismo Vedova, an old farmhouse restored by Massimo Stemberger with interiors by Tobia Scarpa, is a family-run jewel of sustainability and contemporary design that pays homage to the territory by creating a play of spaces that puts nature first.
Immersed in the green hills of San Pietro di Barbozza, a town famous for the production of Prosecco Spumante di Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze Doc, it includes a central structure that houses the farmhouse, characterized by huge windows and a terrace from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of the hills, and the cellar-showroom (the actual production is based a few kilometers away from the Agriturismo, in the center of Valdobbiadene).
A little further from the restaurant area, in what used to be the barn of the farmhouse, there is the suggestive tavern furnished in country chic style with a fireplace and moose heads on the walls. Just perfect for an informal meal, you can taste the products of the farm, such as the meat cold cuts, the jams and many Prosecco DOC varieties: Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze, Millesimato Rive Brut Nebbia, Valdobbiadene Superiore Extra Dry, Prosecco Frizzante e Tranquillo or Prosecco col fondo, or sur lie, naturally fermented.
The menu, based on the farm’s products, follows the local tradition with simple and genuine dishes at an excellent quality / price ratio such as crepes with nettles, smoked ricotta gnocchi, tagliatelle with duck sauce or tortelli with beetroot, ricotta and poppy seeds. The second courses include great quality meat, such as boneless guinea fowl with balsamic vinegar, pork shank with rosemary, tripe alla parmigiana or beef stew with asparagus. There are also options for vegetarians such as Schiz cheese with polenta.
Perfect for a Prosecco break or an informal lunch, in spring and summer months, after eating, you can also take advantage of a walk in the paths among the vineyards around the area, really very beautiful.
The interiors of the old farmhouse were designed by the famous designer Tobia Scarpa, winner of the Compasso d’Oro and son of the great architect Carlo Scarpa, who created ad hoc the original fireplace in the center of the restaurant, the tables, chairs and most of the furnishings of the Agriturismo.
