The soul of the Collio - Vini Pascolo
EXCELLENCE IN WINE
Two days in sunny, charming Ruttàrs in Collio, a land of quality wine and stunning landscapes. A plethora of activity awaits as you enjoy an area that sits between the Carnic Alps and the Adriatic sea, all bordering on the lush and much undiscovered Slovenia. Here, the freshness of the hills and the surrounding nature allows you to forget the rut of daily life and be transported into a world of pleasure and discovery.
Alessandro is waiting to guide you through his Pascolo winery where you will taste native grape varieties that have become international wines such as, Friulano, Malvasia, Merlot, Pascal, Agnul ... and more! Finally, your host will select an old vintage to complete your experience as you sip on the fruit of the land, draped in the colours of the sunset looking across the vineyards.
Teresa, on the other hand, will make you feel at home as she welcomes you to her B&B! The following day, the more curious can set off on a tour of the 7 churches in the hills.
A must for those in search of some well-deserved peace, pleasure and relaxation!
Chalice of the Sun
// At 5:00 PM
Perched on the hills of the Collio sits Pascolo winery in Ruttàrs with vineyard views that will transport you to another world.
Take a walk in the vineyard before reaching the winery where winemaker and oenologist Alessandro Pascolo will take you on a tour and guide you in the tasting of his wines.
What is more evocative of Italian charm than a wine tasting at sunset. Choose between native and international wines: Friulano, Malvasia, Merlot, Pascal, Agnul ... and more! Finally, Alessandro will choose an old vintage to be enjoyed as you admire the views as the sun sets over the Collio hills.
