    Wine destination: Collio goriziano

    04 February 2022

    Imagine your next holiday. A place where nature, wine, tradition and good food, are intertwined with relaxation and well-being for body and mind.

    The Collio goriziano is what you are looking for: a fertile crescent that descends from the Julian Alps to the Adriatic Sea. A crossroads of peoples and cultures, where traditions and Friulian, Slovenian and Austrian elements have coexisted for centuries. A biodiversity to protect and preserve, where wine is the real protagonist, the purest expression of this precious balance: elegant, sapid, structured, fragrant, characterized by freshness and longevity.

    Between vineyards and lush forests, small villages, castles and churches, the Collio is the perfect place to enjoy a moment to unwind from everyday life. Let’s find out together what you can do in this incredible area of Friuli Venezia Giulia and how you can relax among the vineyards.

    The Collio by bike, on foot or on horseback

    The Collio, with its Slow Collio project, offers more than 90km of slopes (25km on cycle paths and 65km on asphalt roads) equipped with tables, rest areas and racks. For lovers of walking, however, the “Sentiero delle Vigne Alte” is definitely a must, to fully immerse yourself in the silence of the vineyards and can also be explored by bike or on horseback. The path will lead you from the Castello di Spessa to the stables of La Subida.

    The itineraries of taste along the Collio

    Collio’s first tourist route, the “Strada del Vino e delle Ciliegie”, was founded in 1963 and was designed to enhance the best wineries and producers in the area, recognizable by the wrought iron signs affixed outside the “Botteghe del Collio”. The most recent project of “La Strada del Vino e dei Sapori” was derived from this initiative. A real experience at 360 º C. that will allow you to discover the excellences of the territory between food and wine, wineries, restaurants, farmhouses, B&B, crafts along with the many activities related to nature, art and sport present on the territory.

    Collio wines (and others)

    The white wine is the true king of Collio, recognized since 1968 with the denomination DOC Collio. The vines of these areas grow in a perfect combination of soil and climate, thanks to the marl and sandstone, rich in minerals and that give the unmistakable taste to the wines of this land.

    The Collio it’s home not only of precious wines. Among these gentle hills, there is a universe rich in delicacies, contaminated by Friulian, Austrian and Slovenian traditions: from cherries to plums, from cheeses to hams transformed with techniques that have been handed down for generations, from olive oil to wine vinegar through artisan mills that still today traditionally work ancient grains. To savour all these goodness in person, you just have to enter one of the restaurants of the Castello di Spessa or in the many farms, Inns, restaurants and taverns scattered throughout the Collio and get carried away in a journey into taste, where space and time become relative concepts.

    How to relax on the Collio?

    After a long day of exploration, what better way to find your own center in a SPA overlooking the vineyards? And that’s what you’ll find in the new Vinum SPA at Castello di Spessa. A place where Winetherapy will accompany you in a path of well-being and relaxation, thanks to cosmetic treatments based on extracts of grapes and its derivatives, massages with hot stones obtained from the “Ponca” and chromotherapy. The perfect conclusion to a long day of walking or cycling, can only be sipping a good wine of the Estate, immersed in the whirlpool of the panoramic terrace “I Tini”, overlooking the vineyard and the golf course of the resort.
