“Trattoria al Cacciatore”, at the Subida for a special dinner

Traditional, local and seasonal food, here are the dinner suggestions

I’ve just told you all about my unique experience in the hills of the Collio and the great hospitality of the Subida.

La Subida: a 20 hectare dream in Cormons

In the green hills of the Collio, great restoration, excellent hospitality and sport

During the 1990s I used to spend the weekend at the Subida with my family. After lunch we used to go to the stables to admire their beautiful horses. But it was just recently that I truly discovered how much this place has to offer. A fairy tale location… after all there are legends that…

As usual, at the end of every December it’s report time! I think about all the lovely experiences I shared with you: lots of journeys, incredible trips, fun visits, tastings… And as I thought about my food and wine tours – where I discovered the best of the territory and new recipes to share with…

Need a romantic weekend? The Castle of Spessa is the place for you!

The Wine Resort in the Collio of Gorizia

I’m always on the look out for new interesting places to tell you about and today I’m on a little hill in the estate of Mr Pali (an industrialist from Friuli). From here I can see the reddish walls of the castle, which is surrounded by an endless and smart Italian style garden. I walk…
