What to expect

Discover the native grape varieties of the Karst Plateau between the Renaissance and the Great War periods. Take in the best of Friuli's Eastern Hills (Colli Orientali del Friuli) with a visit to Cividale, founded by Julius Caesar and the first capital of the Lombard Kingdom. Mixing in wine and culture experience and it will be an unforgettable day.

MORNING. You will visit the Castelvecchio winery in Sagrado (Gorizia), immersed in the Karst Plateau with a breathtaking view over the Collio hills and the Friulian plains. Stage of violent battles during the Great War, it now includes a beautiful park named after the poet Ungaretti and the fascinating Renaissance Villa, which once hosted a war hospital, where graffiti done by the soldiers live together with the frescoes by the painting school inspired by Tiepolo. Complete your experience with a rich selection of salumi and cheese paired with local wines such as Malvasia in its dry and passito styles, and Terrano - also offered in unusual sparkling style.

AFTERNOON. Enjoy a stroll in the medieval town of Cividale, crossing the Devil’s Bridge and visiting the Lombard Temple, and the mysterious cellar-like cavern Ipogeo Celtico (Celtic Hypogeum). At the end of the tour, Palladian style Villa de Puppi winery awaits you with a guided tasting of some other local wines like Ribolla Gialla (still and sparkling), Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso and a sparkling Chardonnay made using méthode champenoise.
