Giuseppe Vizzotto and his Villa Almè
“I christened this splendid project Villa Almè in tribute to my wife, Almerina. She chose all the interior furnishings, all the accessories and fabrics, and the nal result is so harmonious and pleasant thanks to her inborn good taste and passionate search for antiques that perfectly blend in with the spirit and design of the villa.
Each detail is a recollection, an emotion, a sentiment. I wanted a wood vault ceiling in the cellar like churches used to have, and underground for ageing, but also somewhere comfortable for sampling, so I wanted opus signinum plaster like they used to use in Venice, with typical Venetian style furniture. Above all I wanted Villa Almè to be somewhere we could experience the essence of this land, where excellent wine is made and also where we welcome our guests from all over the world. I’ve always liked the idea of letting people from far o lands know about my world, to try and transmit some of the love I feel for it”.
Its setting evokes the Venetian family houses of days gone by, harking back to the late Baroque of the 18th century, whilst being surrounded by the freshness and greenery of a series of woods and vineyards. It combines great elegance with a warm welcome. In winter guests can sample the house
wines by the fireplace, whilst in summer the wonderful garden is open, which is a fine vantage point for views of the Veneto landscape. It is a fine base from which to discover the old medieval centres and the surrounding countryside, as well as the museums and artistic monuments of Treviso, Asolo and Venice.
The accommodation offered in the villa consists of a suite and six generous-sized twin rooms, all with en-suite bathroom
and furnished with care and good taste.
All bedrooms have a telephone, air conditioning, an electronic safe, a refrigerated bar and satellite TV. On awakening, guests can enjoy a sumptuous self-service continental breakfast in the warm and comfortable surroundings of the breakfast room.
Villa Almè welcomes enquiries for private and corporate functions, tastings, dinners, banquets and conferences. The inner room, cellar, portico and garden can all be made available, along with an external Catering & Banqueting service, to create a sophisticated ambience for any event.
Very soon Bepi shared his bet on Raboso with Renato De Noni, a renowned Italian oenologist and successful sparkling wine producer. ey were both born on the sixth of April (both Aries which says a lot about their determined character) and in 2000 they decided to work together for the rebirth of Raboso, until then generally overlooked by the experts. eir aim was to create an unusual wine full of character, but true to its traditions, and this was the guiding idea that led to a very strong friendship. Raboso Piave found formidable support from them both to develop all its potential and become a noble wine.
