    Winery Visit and Lunch at Castello di Roncade

Winery Visit and Lunch at Castello di Roncade

  • City: Venice
  • Duration: Approximately 4.5 hours

Overview

Just a few short miles from Venice lies Castello di Roncade, a stunning 15th century castle originally constructed as a working vineyard and country villa for the Giustinian family, whose members include two Venetian doges, senators, and even saints. The villa, built by the same architect that designed the Clock Tower in Venice, offers a fascinating display of Renaissance architecture, from its interior rooms to its garden and the moat surrounding the exterior wall.

Your experience of the villa and its vineyards will begin with a private transfer from Piazzale Roma in Venice to Castello di Roncade. Upon arrival, you will begin your visit with a tour of the villa and private chapel. This is followed by a stroll through the vineyards where the Bassetti family planted imported French varietal vines from Gironde in the 20th century, in addition to the vines of native varietals such as Raboso Piave and Glera.

After a visit to the wine aging cellars you will witness the estate's wines being made, such as their flagship Bordeaux blend Villa Giustinian, Raboso dell'Arnasa, Merlot, Cabernet, and Prosecco. This will be followed by a full four-course lunch paired with Castello di Roncade wines: A typical Italian antipasto spread, followed by a pasta course, a meat course, and a dessert.

This tour was simply wonderful and the value was excellent. The villa grounds are beautiful but the friendly owners and staff just put it over the top. The lunch was the best meal we had in all 11 days of our trip! Really enjoyed the wine and ordered a case shipped home. We were a group of three couples and could order a case of 18, 6 each, shipped. Worked perfect. This tour is mostly about the wine and it works well for a small group of adults. I would go back!
