The village of Schierano rises 418 meters above sea level.

Schierano is a village of rare beauty with its austere buildings in stone and exposed bricks, enclosed inward, which allow little to the visitor who remains equally enthralled.

Of particular interest are the medieval tower, the baroque church of S. Grato and the eighteenth-century chapel of S. Sebastiano.


The Malvasia di Castelnuovo don Bosco is obtained from the ancient Malvasia di Schierano vine, which has a black berry, with a delicately aromatic flavor. The Venetians imported the vine and the name from the Greek city of Monemvasia, located on the southeastern coast of the Peloponnese. Malvasia was also the name used to name wines from the eastern part of the Mediterranean and the premises in Venice where their trade took place.
