The Collalto family have been leading figures in the history of the March of Treviso ever since the 12th century, when they started the agricultural activity on their lands that has continued uninterrupted until today.
Already in the far-off Middle Ages they concentrated on growing vines and producing quality wines, at that time sign of power and undoubted eminence. The dual concept “wine-land” - which has today become an integral part of the cultural heritage of the Italian wine-producing world - finds a renowned forerunner in the Collalto farm enterprise that may by all rights be compared to the great French “chateaux”!
The Collalto Estate, owned for centuries by the princely branch, runs through vineyard, woods, lands with free roaming herds on the hill sides, and arable lands on the plain.
It is a perfect place where starting lots of sightseeing around the Veneto region, like Venice (50 km), Padua (65 km), Asolo (35 km), Cortina d’Ampezzo (100 km).
