Ca’ Piadera (TV) — Veneto Secrets

On the beautiful hills of Tarzo, Ca' Piadera encloses all the best of the Venetian agricultural and artisan traditions in an enchanted place that invites you to relax and take your time.

As soon as you arrive at Ca’ Piadera, which takes its name from the ancient toponym of the area located in the heart of the Prosecco DOCG Conegliano Valdobbiadene region, you will be welcomed by the scent of medicinal herbs, the silence of the larch and chestnut woods and the beauty of the nature of the Venetian hills enclosed in a breathtaking landscape.

That same panorama that made the owner, the Venetian Glauco Forte, fall in love with an abandoned 19th-century farmhouse to the point of deciding to restore it in order to make it his home and create a world where you can feel pampered and loved by nature itself.

So in 2008, the farm was born, then in 2012 was the turn of the restaurant, in 2016 the rustic-chic B&B that offers seven rooms and a panoramic swimming pool, and in 2021 has inaugurated “Al 6”, the bistro with shop, where you can stop to taste the delicious homemade cold cuts with a good glass of wine on the panoramic terrace or stock up on farm products, such as pasta, cured meats, eggs, jams, olive oil, biscuits or of course all their wines.

The farmhouse was completely renovated in the name of respect for the environment, preferring the use of stones, wood, and elements of recovery from the old farmhouse. With the help of an artisan carpentry from nearby Cadore, the interior design has been enriched with original objects dedicated to the rural professions of the past that matches the mountain spirit with a modern industrial style. As a result, an ox yoke has been transformed into a hanger for the wardrobe, an old trunk has become a suitcase rack, whilst work tools have turned into bed headboards.

The atmosphere is that of a caring family business, where every detail is just executed to perfection. This is because Ca’ Piadera is first and foremost the “home” of its owner, who personally follows with love all the activities of the farm: from the manual production of his wines (from Prosecco Superiore Conegliano Valdobbiadene Extra Dry and Brut DOCG to Pinot Grigio Siàda, from Cabernet Franc IGT Pieron to Bordeaux cut Tira Tessa) to the care of the vegetable garden up to the breeding of farm animals in a semi-wild state. The few raw materials that are not self-produced, such as the cheeses, are all procured from local suppliers who embrace the same natural philosophy.

The restaurant offers a dream menu for those who love genuine flavors. Local recipes based on homemade pasta and meats are revisited by the chef in a modern way and everything is made following the rhythms of nature, season after season, just like our grandmothers used to do. And it is precisely from our “mothers” that Ca ‘Piadera draws continuous inspiration by kneading bread, cakes, gnocchi, lasagne and tagliatelle fresh every day and preparing rabbit, guinea fowl, chicken, and pork to be cooked in the oven or in a pot with vegetables from the garden.

For lunch or dinner, in summer you can choose between the gazebo overlooking the hills or the table under the flowery portico, while in winter you can dine in front of the fireplace or along the ancient “mangers” used as a wine rack.

On a monthly basis, Ca ‘Piadera also organizes live music eveningscooking classes and events related to the psycho-physical well-being of the person.

The Secret

The choice of the number 6, which can be found in the logo of the farm, in the wine labels and in other details of the property, is due to the fact that 6 is the street number of the farm, then chosen as a lucky charm by its new owner. The old original house number plate has been preserved and placed above the fireplace in one of the restaurant rooms.
