Discover the wines of the Castle of Porcía, which since the 12th century has been permanent residence of the noble family Porcía who ruled these lands for eight centuries. The manor became the center of important political and cultural events of the history of Friuli. Uniquely placed, the castle is in an excellent military location - the view to the mountains, from which the Barbarian invasions arrived, is perfect. Thus, the castle was able to also protect the magnificent neo-gothic cathedral behind it.

Emperors such as Charles V (1532) and Henry III, Holy Roman Emperor, were guests here, appreciating the good wine, cuisine, and hospitality. Over time, the castle suffered heavy devastation mainly due to earthquakes, which undermined the original architecture. The castle comprises a main tower, which - according to some historians - is based on the remaining parts of a Roman building. The Renaissance wing and a Venetian-style building are also part of the castle complex.

The Castle of Porcia winery continues today the family winemaking tradition. The wine cellar with its historic and picturesque Slavonian oak barrels vats is visited regularly by wine enthusiasts who appreciate the selection of white, red, Prosecco wines, and grappa.

As the castle is still the private residence of the Princes of Porcía and Brugnera, it cannot be visited. It can, however, be accessed through the wine cellar, where a tasty snack awaits you, accompanying the wine tasting with products from the Porcía lands, which have been tended to by the same family for over 800 years.

Price per person (minimum 4 to maximum 30 participants):

ticket: € 8.00 + online booking fee per person: € 1.60

This is a guided group tour through the castle wine cellar. The rest of the castle is the private residence of the Porcía and Brugnera family and cannot be accessed.
