Our Emblematic Symbol
The fifteenth century castle, Montecuccoli deli Erri, was built in 1490 and has been part of the family for four generations. It is one of the first historical residences in the area of Modena. One of the important events which took place in the castle was the lavish wedding of Nicoló Rangoni, Lord of Modena and Spilamberto, and Bianca Bentivoglio in 1600.
From the 17th century to the end of the 18th century, the castle belonged to the noble Montecuccoli family. From that point to present day the castle has remained in the family. With this history begins the experience and journey that we hope to depict to each and every customers: the place where atmosphere combines with art, aromas with history, and people’s hospitality with warm surroundings that will surely capture you.
We welcome you to partake in our coffee experience.
