Das Hotel allgemein
Vinilia Wine Resort was born by the wise and careful renovation of an ancient mansion dating back to the early '900, built on behalf of the aristocratic family Schiavone of Manduria, with origins between Rome and Manduria. The Roman designer of that building was inspired, in construction, to a neo-eclectic style typical of the Roman school of that period. The structure is, in fact, like an old manor house with tower and turrets, battlements, loopholes and decorations of monumental proportions and a main body that resembles a small medieval castle. In historical maps the building is always identified as "Casina Ciracì" although we don't know the origins of the name.
The building was then supported by secondary structures, typically rural, with stables functions, deposits and outbuildings. An Italian garden adorned the rear part the manor on which overlooked the large terrace, to the south of the building. The presence of two large cisterns to collect rainwater, located in the vicinity of the main building is of great importance.
The property was later purchased by Lacaita / Parisi Family and was completely restored, saving it from a serious degradation to which it had been abandoned.
Of particular interest it is the internal staircase over 3 floors, built with rampant masonry vaults resting on small vaults. The project of restoration and recovery, has been preserved as much as possible the original wall structure, eliminating the various accretions, built over decades and bringing new life to the building.
