Villa Corèn was built in the 16th century and the towers were added at the side in the 18th century.

It was once the property of the nobles Caiselli and Belgrado, but has been in the family since the mid 19th century. It is surrounded by a garden and small park, about 5,000 square meters, completely enclosed by a wall.

The Villa was seriously damaged by the 1976 earthquake, completely restored and now represents the typical Friulian residence of a country gentleman.

We have an average size farm, about 63 hectares, growing grapes for wine (Friuli Grave D.O.C. - Controlled Denomination of Origin). All the wine is produced on the farm itself. We also have biologically grown kiwis, almost totally for export, plus cereals and soya.

The fields are all around the Villa and the farm, and form a significant agricultural center only 10 minutes from Udine.

There is a small room available for guests with hydromassage and sauna. A small meeting room for up to 20 people is also available.

Rooms:

Nice large double bedrooms, with decorated walls, antique furniture and carpets, are available for guests, only in the warm season.

Apartments:

In the large building that used to be the cellar and barn we have made six apartments sleeping from 2 to 5 persons. The apartments are well equipped for a pleasant stay in the country, only ten minutes from Udine and Cividale del Friuli.

The apartments for 4 are structured on two floors.

On the ground floor there is a large sitting room with a well equipped kitchen, a wood fire, comfortable armchairs, direct dial telephone (suitable for modem) and satellite TV. Direct access to a small private garden, one for each apartment, equipped with table and chairs, sunshade and deck chair.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. Two apartments also have a washing machine. The apartments for 2 are on the first floor and have a double bedroom, a sitting room/kitchen with satellite TV, direct dial telephone and bathroom with shower.

One apartment for 4 has been restructured and is completely accessible for the disabled.

Pets such as cats and dogs are welcome, provided they are well behaved.

The Cellar:

While we respect traditional methods, wooden casks for the red wines, we adopt the most up to date techniques to control the fermentation and to refine the wines. We produce the most typical wines of the Friuli Grave area, on average between 500 and 700 hectoliters per year.

The Wines:

Friuli Grave Doc - Merlot:

Originally from the Gironde (Bordeaux), this vine is perfectly suited to Friuli. The wine is a ruby red colour, turning Burgundy red after a brief period of ageing. The bouquet is full and fragrant, with a subtle scent of roses. Dry, harmonious taste, with a slight grassy flavour. A versatile wine, it can accompany both white meat and red, and semi-mature cheeses. Serve at room temperature.

Friuli Grave Doc - Cabernet Franc:

This vine originally came from the Bordeaux region, and spread through Friuli from the end of the 19th century. The wine ages quite well, is an intense ruby red colour, with a marked grassy bouquet, reminiscent of raspberries. It has a full, robust and harmonious taste. It goes particularly well with game, red meat dishes, well matured, hard cheeses. Serve at room temperature.

Friuli Grave Doc - Refosco:

An old, Friulian vine, already common in the 18th century. Intense purplish red colour, winy bouquet, characteristic; dry, full, warm and slightly bitter taste. It can be aged for one or two years. It goes well with game and typical Friulian dishes (pork sausage with beans, goulash, etc.). Serve at room temperature.

Friuli Grave Doc - Tocai:

The most typical of Friuli's white wines, for many years it was the "white wine" by definition. A fine, delicate wine, with an intense bouquet reminiscent of wild flowers, a dry, soft and very rounded taste. It is an excellent aperitif, or with hors d'oeuvres, fish and white meat. Serve at 12°C.

Friuli Grave Doc - Pinot Bianco:

Clearly of French origin, the vine is widely grown in Friuli too. A medium bodied wine, it has a delicate and elegant bouquet, when young, reminiscent of wild flowers and fruit. As it ages, the bouquet becomes more intense and prompt. Drunk as an aperitif but also with hors d'oeuvres and fish, broth, poultry, eggs and mild cheeses. Serve at 10 - 12°C.

Friuli Grave Doc - Pinot Grigio:

The vine is a variant of the Pinot Noir, and has found very favourable environmental conditions in Friuli. Distinct, strong bouquet, reminiscent of the acacia flower. Dry, full, pleasant and slightly bitter taste. Particularly suitable for hors d'oeuvres, especially ham, light soups, risotto, fish and white meat. Serve at 10 - 12°C.

Colli Orientali del Friuli Doc - Verduzzo:

A native vine, characteristic, which has always been grown in Friuli. The wine is golden yellow in colour, with a fruity bouquet, a taste of honey, tannic, strong bodied: all perfectly amalgamated. A great dessert wine, served at 8 - 10°C.

Friuli Grave Doc - Sauvignon:

The vine originally came from the Gironde, near Sauternes, and has long been grown all over Friuli. Greeny yellow in colour, the wine has a delicate bouquet, slightly aromatic. It has a dry, strong but smooth taste, with a slightly bitter after taste. Recommended as an aperitif and with fish, ham, omelettes. Serve at 10 - 12°C.

Friuli Grave Doc - Chardonnay:

This vine comes from the Champagne and Bourgogne regions, but has adapted perfectly well throughout Friuli. Pale yellow in colour, the wine has a delicate bouquet, the typical taste of this variety of wine, full bodied, suitably acidic. For aperitifs, hors d'oeuvres, shell fish and fish in general. Serve at 8 - 10°C.

Schioppettino:

The vine is of the Ribolla family (Ribolla Nera) and comes from the area between Eastern Friuli and Slovenia. The wine is red with purplish undertones, a bouquet reminiscent of raspberries and blueberries, full bodied, fresh, a little sweet. It goes well with dry cakes, bitter chocolate, dry fruit.

Spirits:

By carefully selecting the grapes and marc, we distil limited quantities of Brandy and Grappa, which combine tradition and a refined taste. We produce Grappa from the "Cabernet Franc" grape, and "Noac" Brandy.

La Baita:

La Baita means "mountain hut" and in a small park next to the Villa there is the trattoria "La Baita", where you can taste the specialties of Friulian cuisine accompanied by Villa Corèn wines.

Location:

Villa Corèn is 10 km northeast of Udine and 11 km from Cividale del Friuli, near the hills and a short distance from the mountains and numerous places of great historical and artistic interest and natural beauty.
