Cycling Retreat | 4 Night – 5 Days

“SURROUNDED BY THE GREEN OF COLLIO GORIZIANO,
WE OFFER YOU A UNIQUE SETTING WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS
IDEAL TO JUMP ON YOUR BIKE AND
RIDE BETWEEN THE VINEYARDS”

Tucked into the far northeast corner of Italy, the region of Collio is a curve of bright and sunny hills, slopes and terraces amidst the province of Friuli Venezia Giulia on the border of Slovenia and between the Julian Alps and the Adriatic Sea. Collio enjoys a mild climate with summers that are hot but not stifling and winters that are cold and often rainy, although this year’s month of May was the wettest since May 1973. Dramatic diurnal temperature shifts and local winds create a unique micro-climate. Thanks to the warm currents from the Adriatic Sea, grapes are kept dry and the mountains to the north protect the region from cold winds. The unique soil, termed Ponca, consists of layered marl and sandstone that offer elements of minerality and salinity to the wines. As you may expect, grapevines thrive in this natural environment.
