We know and love these places because they reward generously the efforts of the hand that respect them and tend them with passion. These are the lands of the Collio district gentle hill country in the Eastern lands of Friuli Venezia Giulia, where the “Casanova Castle” stands and where the thirty hectares of vineyards mantle the hills. Here the wines benefit from ideal soils formed by marls and sandy loams, and from a favourable microclimate, thanks to the protection offered in the north by the Julian Alps and the nearness of the Adriatic Sea, with its softening effect of temperature extremes. Venice is just 1h30m away by car.
The castle's origins date back to the long-ago 1200. Its long history of successions and noble lineages, distinguished people and daring guests Giacomo Casanova among them transfers of property and loving restorations has preserved the castle intact to our days, for us to admire in the pomp and splendour of the 1881 reconstruction. Standing proud on a gentle hill and surrounded by a magnificent park, the castle dominates the estate's vineyards, the symbol of tradition and nobility and an ideal guide toward excellence.
