Tasting along the Via del Doge – Vendrame Vignis del Doge

Taste nobility...Venetian Vineyards in Friuli

Welcome to the land of the noble Doge of Venice. Here in Passariano, in the DOC Friuli Grave area, brothers Simone and Gino and their family have proudly carried with them this reputation of great Venetian wealth for generations.

Their estate, Vendrame Vignis del Doge, stands on what was once the land  of the Doge. Right next to the estate stands the imposing and regal Villa Manin, a sixteenth-century Venetian villa where the noble spent his summers, away from the social commitments that Venice demanded.

In the street in front of the winery, you can retrace the steps of the horses that carried the gondola with the doge himself.

You can also see the winery’s symbol, the Venetian “Corno Dogale” or the Doge's Byzantine hat, reminiscent of the gondola.

Come and visit this little piece of "Venice", for a guided tour of the vineyards and the cellar, and a final wine tasting accompanied by typical products from Friuli, such as San Daniele prosciutto and Montasio cheese.

The wines are not only historically noble but also soulfully so… sustainably certified with no animal products or derivatives in the production or packaging process.

In addition the wine bottle labels have been stunningly designed representative of what were once the English gardens of Villa Manin, something discovered in 18th century historical documents.

Immerse yourself in Venetian aristocracy. Vendrame Vignis del Doge awaits you! Come and find out for yourselves!
