Our past is a fabric woven of so many stories... every bit as fascinating as a chivalric epic. Here, man and the land have always lived together in the fullest respect for equilibrium in nature.
Like a Poem
The great history book of the Counts of Collalto takes its start as early as 958, when Berengarius, King of Italy, granted to Rambaldo I, ancestor of the Collaltos, the wood of Montello and the Curtis of Lovadina, a vast plain of meadows, pastures, and vineyards at the foot of the hills of Treviso.
Thus began an interweaving of many stories… as intriguing as a chivalric epic poem; from those knights of the Middle Ages, in fact, the Collaltos inherited their spirit of loyalty and respect for the land. For centuries, they served as custodians of their lands, protecting their natural balance and encouraging sapient development of their agricultural, viticultural, and natural resources, all integral components of an all-encompassing, almost-paradisiacal landscape.
...here, where the scent of the centuries still lives...
Since 1110 the Collalto family, from generation to generation, has presided over the noble hills of Susegana and Conegliano. Its roots go back to the time of the sagas with spear in rest...
A long, long history...
Since 1110, the House of Collalto, generation after generation, has protected these hills, which over time became the noble cradle of prosecco. The Collaltos took sage advantage of the hills’ fertility, exhibiting passionate dedication in particular for the development of the grapevines and the wine they yielded.
The history of the Collaltos is impressively long, and the Castle of San Salvatore is its most lampant symbol—an imposing, hieratic fortress that has kept diligent watch over the craftsmen and people, and defended the territory even through the most historically challenging times.
The family roots go as far back in time as the sagas of lance- wielding knights.
Princess Isabella Collalto de Croÿ is the heir to this historic enterprise. A paternal legacy that the princess is cultivating with environmental sensitivity and production quality.

Since 2007, the Princess has personally overseen the vineyards and wine production facility inherited from her father, in a manner that has been a constant motif running through the long family history. Her management is notable for attention dedicated to innovations in vineyard sustainability and for research directed at improving product and environmental quality.
The continuity of careful family management is an important aspect for the reliability of an enterprise. And the history of today's Collalto is already looking towards tomorrow with confidence.
