La Vinaria Veneto (TV)
Located in Cison di Valmarino, one of the most beautiful Italian towns on the Prosecco Hills, Villa Marcello Marinelli is an ancient noble residence now converted into a charming relais. Located inside the rooms that formerly housed the Count’s cellars, Vinaria Veneto is a fine retreat just perfect for wine lovers. Villa Marinelli was presumably built in the Middle Ages and lately became the country residence of the Marcello family, one of the oldest and most important Venetian families. Inaugurated in 2018, Vinaria Veneto overlooks the central square of Cison right in front of the Fifteenth century building that houses the historic Caffè Roma. Beautifully restored by the current owners, Serena and her husband Loris, the winery maintains the original charm of the building with a fresh and contemporary touch. The heart of the Vinaria is undoubtedly the spectacular wine vault, underlined by the two old iron gratings recovered in a local antique market. Ethnic and retro touches add a theatrical effect to the interior design.
Among delicious “cicchetti” (local appetizers), typical products and a menù of local recipes, the winery offers a truly enviable wine list that includes only excellent local labels. Vinaria organizes guided tastings inside the restaurant and tours around the many local wineries. During the beautiful summer evenings it is possible to enjoy a glass of wine or a refreshing cocktail al fresco, on the outdoor tables overlooking the small square or, perhaps, resting on the inviting colored cushions. For those who want to spend a day or just a special evening in the Villa, the frescoed rooms, the ancient arcades and its secret gardens are available for dinners and private events of great charm.
