At the foot of San Salvatore Castle, and just a short walk from the centre of Susegana, stands a fascinating structure evoking the Hapsburg era, the Prosecco Collalto Lodge. Its ochre and red brick, mirroring the architectural style of the winery, recalls the centuries-old link between this land and the Collalto family. Since the Middle Ages, the Counts’ lands, with their distinctively-painted farmhouses, have produced wine and crops in full respect for the environment.
The gently-contoured hills that today have become UNESCO WorldHeritage site are carpeted by endless rows of sapiently-tended vines, gilded by the sun, flowing with a mesmerizing uniformity towards the horizon. The age-long Collalto tradition continues today with its red and white wines–Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot, Chardonnay, and Incrocio Manzoni, along with Wildbacher, or Wild Stream, a grape variety imported centuries ago from Styria by a Collalto Count, and, of course, the family’s utterly distinctive Prosecco.
This guesthouse of the Conte Collalto winery was completely renovated in 2018 into today’s Prosecco Collalto Lodge. Its windows allow you a privileged view of the farming activity, marked by the cycle of seasons and crops; here you can actually capture the aromas of winemaking and…. discover what your favourite Prosecco is!
