Perfect Accompaniment of Excellent Wine and Italian Cuisine
Perched on the mesmerizing hill of Pampinutta, the Castle Buttrio Winery watches over the picturesque countryside of Friuli Venezia Giulia, dotted by magnificent vineyards and woods. The ideal combination of fertile terroirs and perfect microclimate encourages the production of rich-quality wines. Tourists can taste Italian wine-food pairing at an ancient restaurant, Locande while dissolving 360-degree views of scenic landscapes.
Castle Buttrio Winery, Famous for Their Red, White, and Dessert Wines
In 1994, Marco Felluga bought the property of the ancient Castello di Buttrio and replanted the surrounding vineyards. Today, his daughter Alessandra Felluga, along with granddaughters, operates all the functions of the winery. With passion and determination, and to keep the family tradition at the top, Alessandra expands the business by purchasing more land. Rustic farmhouses are also restored where masonry activities take place. At present, the estate is famous for its mouth-watering red, white, and dessert wines, made within the certified DOC Friuli region.
The Hotel That Dates Back to the 1900s
Within the ten hectares of vineyards, surrounding the ancient castle, Alessandra cultivates a huge range of vines, both native and international. She grows top-quality Friulano, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon. On a few plots, a mixture of Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Refosco, Cabernet, Pignolo, and Verduzzo are grown. All the activities in the vineyards are manual, such as mechanical pruning, weeding by hands, handpicking of grapes, following nature’s rhythm.
For private events, such as weddings and meetings, the estate features large halls at Hotel de Charme. The hotel dates back to the early 1900s, and today, it has been renovated entirely with state-of-the-art designs and facilities. There are more halls, such as the pink hall and chimney hall for private dinners and lunches, along with an accommodation facility at the 19th-century Villa. In addition, guests are also allowed to discover the 17th-century Palazzo, stables, and a church.
