AMONG THE VINEYARDS OF THE COLLIO GORIZIANO A ROMANTIC STAY AT THE CASTELLO DI SPESSA GOLF & WINE RESORT
"Romance is in our nature"
romantic is the very essence of the Castello di Spessa di Capriva del Friuli, which with its unmistakable silhouette stands on top of a small hill, in the heart of the Collio of Gorizia, a land of great wines and ancient
history. Immersed in the greenery of a magnificent Italian garden, surrounded by the vineyards of
the estate to which it gives its name, the manor of medieval origin was for centuries the residence of the nobility of Friuli and Trieste. Among his illustrious guests (from Lorenzo Da Ponte, the famous Mozart librettist, to Emanuele Filiberto d'Aosta), there was also Giacomo Casanova, who - hosted by the then owner Conte Lui gi Torriani - found refuge and tranquility to write and he greatly appreciated the wines, which he defined in his Memoirs as "of excellent quality".
Golf & Wine Resort

border where they met and intertwined, in an extraordinary melting pot, the Latin, Slavic, Germanic world.
To pay homage to its most illustrious guest, one was drawn in the historic park surrounding the castle
