Orto di Venezia (VE)
Orto di Venezia, the only winery in Venice, is located in a shabby-chic farm house in the quiet island of Sant’Erasmo, where the vineyards are naturally grown thanks to the favourable Lagoon’s climate and rich terroir. Orto, a unique 5-year-aged white wine, has been created by Michel Thoulouze, a French businessman who, after getting into the international limelight with the foundation of various television channels, including famous Canal Plus, fell in love with Venice and decide to settle down there.
Where: the quiet, rural island of Sant’Erasmo, reachable via water-bus from Cavallino Treporti or Fondamenta Nove in Venice (Capannone stop)
