Castello di Rubbia

in the region:

Castello di Rubbia was founded at the end of the 90’s as a wine tourism project, and resurrected the old tradition of wine making that had been started in the 16th century by the Counts of Egg. The estate lies in San Michele del Carso, in the province of Gorizia, and comprises of a 13 hectare vineyard, the historic castle, which is being restored, 170 hectares of woodland and 16 kilometres of trenches and underground embrasures from the First World War.

The family decided to make the most of the native vines of the Carso, such as Terrano, Vitovska and Malvasia which best represent the distinctiveness and characteristics of the area. The characteristic red soil, the product of a geological phenomenon called Carso, is rich in iron and lime. Here drought alternates with the local wind, the Bora, and the vines give grapes from which dry, full-bodied wines are made.
