The Castle of Porcia

The Porcía Castle is one of the symbolic places in the history of Friuli. The complex consists of a central keep, a Renaissance wing and a Venetian-style building.

Built with a military function to protect the territory from the barbarian invasions, from the twelfth century the Castle has become permanent home of the noble family of Porcía and Brugnera, who ruled these lands for eight centuries and held important political and military positions under the Serenissima Republic of Venice.

The Castle of Porcía, still inhabited by the family, is at the center of an agricultural area of ​​840 hectares where prestigious vines and other products are cultivated with cutting-edge methods.

The historical cellar of the Porcía Castle, testimony of the family winemaking tradition, offers guided tours and tastings. Not far from the Castle, the Fattoria di Azzano offers the opportunity to purchase and taste wines from sustainable agriculture and a selection of typical Friulian products.
