The area around Grado offers a magical and contemplative hilly landscape with a unique climate due to the temperature differences between day and night and the amount of wind, the characteristics of which have favored viticulture since pre-Roman times.
High-quality wines are produced in the Collio area, which is approximately 1,600 hectares and was awarded the Controlled Designation of Origin (DOC) in 1968, one of the first in Italy.
From the hills of San Floriano and Oslavia above Gorizia to those of Ruttars, Lonzano and Vencò on the banks of the Judrio, which once marked the border between Italy and Austria, you can see gentle hills with small villages, vineyards and farms in which you can taste the local products.
An original mix of Friulian, Austrian and Slovenian traditions, paired with excellent white wines (Friulano, Pinot, Sauvignon, Ribolla Gialla, Verduzzo, Piccolit), which are often considered among the best in Italy, make this area a paradise for gourmets.
