A sea of flowers at ‘Ronco delle Mele’: The beauty of Collio in spring!
Before the blossoming of the vines, the time has come to admire the sea of flowers in the picturesque apple orchard at ‘Ronco delle Mele’.
It is precisely these apple trees that you see in the video that gave rise to the name of one of Italy’s most renowned vineyards, known for its ‘Ronco delle Mele’ Sauvignon wine. Today it is one of the most awarded white wines in Italy and now a symbol of VENICA & VENICA in Dolegna del Collio, Friuli [Italy].
It has a truly fascinating story to tell, dating back to the First World War, when this small hill was bombed by the Austrians. Following the damage suffered, the founder of VENICA & VENICA Daniele Venica decided, in order to restore and stabilise the soil, to plant a series of apple trees next to the existing vineyard.
And so began the story of this vineyard, from which come the Sauvignon grapes that make this ‘Ronco delle Mele’ wine so special.
But let us continue with Gianni Venica on this wonderful journey through the hills of Collio. Not far from the apple orchard, he takes you to the headquarters of the VENICA & VENICA winery, where the historic wine cellar and wine resort are located. Surrounded by the fascinating panorama of vineyards and forests, with its spacious relaxation areas between the garden and swimming pool, the Wine Resort is looking forward to reopening its doors to its guests…
We are waiting for you!!!
