In Susegana, Borgoluce is a wonderful world based on values of eco-sustainability and biodiversity which, in addition to the osteria, consists of a farm, a winery, two rural B&B with swimming pool, and two shops where you can find many delicious products: wine, meat cold cuts, dairy products, eggs, oil, honey, dried fruit and hazelnuts cream, ancient grain pasta and puff cakes made with special corn flour.
An estate that combines many different realities united by the same values of respect for the land and a love for the territory that has never died out from the Middle Ages to today. Borgoluce belongs, in fact, to the Collalto counts, a family of very ancient Lombard origin, who settled between these hills between the 12th and 13th centuries. Here they founded the castles of Collalto and San Salvatore, the latter still owned and inhabited by the descendants of the noble family and one of the most beautiful in the Veneto.
The over 1000 hectares of woods, pastures, vineyards, and cereal fields are located in the heart of the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. and host breeding of cattle, pigs, horses, buffaloes, a biodynamic garden, and an apiary. A visit – just perfect for a trip with children – to the farm will make you really touch the great care of Borgoluce for this land, currently in conversion to biodynamic status, that gives life only to genuine products made with clean energy. A place to stop, for long or short stays, and discover many beautiful landscapes, cultural sites, and fun outdoor activities.
The Osteria, just a few kilometers from the estate, is located inside a typical farmhouse restored by taking inspiration from the wonderful colors of the surrounding nature, just highlighted by the original works of the artist Roberto Bertazzon.
The cuisine is simple, but incredibly tasty thanks to the exceptional quality of the raw materials: 90% of them, from meats to cheeses, from wine to flour, are in fact self-produced. Absolutely to try the lamb of the Alpagota breed, the pork cheek, the Senatore Cappelli tagliolini pasta with cod, Mandre cheese sauce and black cabbage, and the desserts made with honey and buffalo milk. Maybe accompanied by the latest born organic wines: the Valdobbiadene Docg Brut Nature ‘On Yeasts’ with natural refermentation in the bottle and the ‘Photonic’ Naturally Sparkling White Wine.
In winter, book a table by the fireplace, while in summer enjoy the relaxing panoramic terrace overlooking the hills that surround the osteria.
Borgoluce has recently renovated La Frasca, which takes its name from the bulk wine sales of the Venetian country houses, an informal place for refreshment, perfect for a quick lunch, a snack, or a simple glass of wine in a cosy environment. Here you can also visit two unique museums: at the Mandre Roccagelsa, the peasant life of the past has been recreated in evocative rooms, while an old drying room is home to a selection of tools and means of transport that reconstruct the cyclic nature of work in the fields during the year, lovingly and patiently collected by the Collalto family and Barbara Emo Capodilista.
