The castle in the hearth of Collio
If you imagine your wedding as a special event, this wine resort is undoubtedly the right selection. Set on a mild hill and surrounded by an impressive garden, Castello di Spessa rises with its grandeur in the heart of Collio. Its origins are dated back to 1200: walking through the historical halls it is possible to imagine the magic atmosphere an event may reserve to you. “The Count Apartment”, your charming room, deserves a magnificent 360° view, widely showing the castle lands and the golf course.
In the afternoon invite your friends to join for a walk in the beautiful Italian garden to admire the long vineyards surrounding the castle, among which runs a 18-hole golf course, that have the names of the fine wines produced by the estate. Sports addicted cannot miss a game on the green, for those who prefer a relaxing afternoon, the suggestion is a visit to the close Gorizia, with its attractive old town, or to the city of Trieste, for a walk through history, art and culture.
Destination wedding in Friuli
On the wedding day everything around you seems enchanted. After awakening, take a walk through the garden with your beloved; like magic, white petals lying on the lawn will trace the path to the wedding arch. The embrace of your loved one welcomes you and your closest friends express joy smiling to you. The park is the stunning setting of your symbolic ceremony or alternatively a refined hall in the castle. The reception is set in the medieval halls or in the nineteenth-century halls, while, in the warmer seasons the panoramic terrace, is a unique alternative. A fireworks show will be the perfect end to an unforgettable day.
The next day a guided tour of the winery is a priceless experience. The route starts from the ancient water cistern, now used as a fine wine reserve, before going down to the old military bunker, leading out toward the castle grounds. Here, in the green lush gardens, recall the walk named after Giacomo Casanova, developed in the pergola, terraces adorned with statues and secular trees.
