A little known borderland, packed with the colours and tastes of the hills, rich in local food and wine, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy is sure to steal your heart.
The most well-known area for sure is that surrounding the hills of eastern Friuli, where you can organise a wedding that is destined to impress, for example with the show-stopping backdrop that is Buttrio Castle, a historic residence packed with tradition and boasting breathtaking views over the castle’s vineyards.
During your visit to this spot, you can take part in tastings at the rustic old inn or stay in the adjacent small but charming wine resort to experience the warmth of the country and the aromas of the vineyards in total peace and tranquillity, at any time of year.
There are of course many other, lesser-known venues hidden in the hills of Gorizia, on the border with Slovenia, or in the province of Pordenone, a little known destination packed with original venues and history which I can help you to discover, if you decide to organise your big day in this remarkable Italian region.
Friuli is bursting with locations steeped in history and tradition: from the sandy shores of Lignano, up to the dizzy heights of the Dolomites, passing through ancient Roman cities such as Aquileia or spots marked by Hapsburg history such as the regional capital of Trieste.
In this magnificent borderland you can find hills, vineyards and wine cellars galore, ideal for a wedding reception.
The location itself will be the deciding factor when it comes to the wine to offer your guests; you can choose from abundant qualities of white grape (Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon, Verduzzo, Ramandolo and Chardonnay) and red grape (Cabernet, Malbech), which can be paired with authentic, rustic regional dishes, typical of borderland areas.
Your guests are guaranteed to be impressed by the wide range of cheeses and charcuterie that comes from these valleys. Together with the catering company, I will guide you through the menu choices to find the dishes most suited to you and, thanks to the variety of traditional Friulian cooking, we are sure to satisfy even the most sophisticated of palates!
Friuli Venezia Giulia is the perfect location for couples who really want to impress their guests, taking them off the beaten international tourist path to little known but truly original spots.GET IN TOUCH
