Hotel Cipriani - Grape Arbor in Vineyard

Hotel Cipriani: Grapes from the vineyards in the Cipriani's garden are used to make Casanova Salso, a wine bottled for the hotel by J.B. Sherwood's Capannelle winery in Tuscany.

Giudecca, the island where the Hotel Cipriani is located, was famous for its wines in the 18th Century. "Salso" refers to the salt air that gave a characteristic flavor to Giudecca's wines, while the "Casanova" name is in honor of Giacomo Casanova, who practiced his art of seduction on Caterina Capretta in the gardens of Giudecca.
