Collio is a crossroads of people, cultures and history, with borders that have moved and varied over the years.
Situated within eight of the provinces of Gorizia’s twenty-five municipalities and their surrounding countryside:
Gorizia, the capital border town with an atmosphere that the Hapsburgs called the “Nice of the Adriatic,” Cormòns, the “beating heart“, and San Floriano del Collio, Mossa, Capriva del Friuli, San Lorenzo Isontino, Dolegna del Collio and Farra d’Isonzo.
Recognized as one of Italy’s most prestigious winemaking areas, especially for its desirable, high quality white wines, it is a hidden gem in the wine world with 1,500 hectars of DOC vineyards.
