The Enoteca Regionale Emilia Romagna was founded in 1970. The associated originated in the Municipality of Dozza, the Pro Loco and some local producers, with the participation of the public bodies from the Province of Bologna that were interested in the wine sector.
In 1978, the Region, through a special law, defined the Enoteca as the most suitable instrument to promote regional wine both in Italy and abroad.
In May 1990, the new headquarters was opened. It is spread over about 1000 square meters, completely occupying the ancient underground and part of the Rocca’s ground floor.
The offices and representative rooms are also located here. Below, in the Rocca cellars, the exhibition hall is housed. It offers the opportunity to taste and purchase local wines. A special area was created, with a room dedicated to white wines and one for red wines with the possibility do tastings.
A cannon station in the Rocca, always connected to the exhibition hall, has been adapted for the conservation of aging wines. Another part of the Rocca has been transformed into an air-conditioned cell where the wines are kept to be subjected to organoleptic chemical tests.
We organize weddings in the rooms of the fortress and catering service within the Emilia Romagna Regional Enoteca upon request.
