Castello di Roncade, Construction of the Winery Dating Back to 1508
Castello di Roncade is located right in the heart of Roncade, a small town in the Veneto countryside between Treviso and Venice. The property sits on the ruins of a tenth century castle. The original castle was destroyed and was rebuilt in the sixteenth century. The walls, towers and moat of the Castello were finished a few years before the main villa itself, which dates back to 1508.
Stroll Through the Reverent Gardens Loosing Track of Time
The beautiful gardens are quite entirely surrounded by medieval walls and can be admired as you go through the gate between two round towers. The walls are surrounded by a moat and vineyards. There are four towers, one at each corner of the gardens at Castello di Roncade standing boldly. Three of which are exquisitely renovated and now house guest apartments for the estate. The current owners purchased the castle in the beginning of the 20th century and undertook extensive renovation of the castle and vineyard replanting around the area to develop the estate as a winery. The family owns 110 hectares of land around the castle dedicated for their vineyards. They grow grapes such as Glera, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Manzoni bianco, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Raboso to produce their wines.
Extend your Stay at the Winery
Over the years the family have increased their production by building a state-of-the-art winery in Mogliano, Veneto. The family of Castello di Roncade also runs a bed and breakfast service at the castle which they believe is a great experience for any wine enthusiasts to stay longer at the winery and learn more about their winemaking process.
