The Conte Collalto Wine Cellar
The Collalto family’s production of wine within the walls of the Castello San Salvatore has continued unabated since the Middle Ages. In 1904, in order to meet modern agricultural and scientific requirements, and to satisfy the need for more up-to-date and practical physical structures, Count Ottaviano Antonio Collalto built a specialised, spacious production facility right in the centre of Susegana, hosting wine cellars, offices, lodgings, horse stables, machinery, and agricultural tools custom-designed by the young engineer, Carpenè Malvolti.
More than one hundred years later, the winery still preserves its original architectural form, with its exterior appearance still preserving the traditional colour motif of the Collalto estate buildings, yellow ochre with their characteristic trim in bordeaux red. The interior spaces, however, where all of the Collalto winemaking operations take place, have recently been brought up to the most uncompromising winemaking standards, and they boast state-of-the-art oenological equipment and systems.
The Collalto estate vineyards currently yield about 850,000 bottles, of which 550,000 are Prosecco Superiore Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG.
Conte Collalto produces wine exclusively from its own estate-grown grapes, and performs every step from grapegrowing to bottling. In fact, every grape grown on the properties owned by Isabella Collalto is processed into wine in the historic cellar at Susegana and is released as part of the Collalto line of wines, a line that has always been highly respected for its uncompromising quality and high standards.
