Historical evidence confirms that as early as 1578 vineyards and olive trees thrived on the karst hills where the Villa Veneta estate was built in 1700. The estate is now called Azienda Agricola Castelvecchio and extends over a plateau 145 meters above sea level. It is the first karst rise from the Isonzo and opens up to the Alps to the north and the Adriatic Sea to the south. The ancient battlefields have now been converted into vineyards and olive groves. During the Great War, the first six battles of the Isonzo were fought on the estate. The Villa became a hospital for those who could not be transported and a large military camp stood within the woods. On the walls of the halls of the Villa graffiti made by the soldiers are preserved to this date.Today their farming tradition has prompted them to cultivate the soil in accordance with good environmental practices. They intensify the fertility of the soil, through a series of natural and biodynamic agricultural practices, encouraging the roots of the vines to go deeper into the limestone rocks to collect the minerals and organic elements that characterise the wines of the Karst.
