The villa through time
This renaissance beauty in the heart of thousands of Brda vineyards tells countless stories. Initially, the villa was a hunters' lodge of the Counts of Gorizia and for a long time was used for summer vacations. The subsequent owners were the noblemen of the Herberstein, Della Torre, Attems and Teuffenbach families. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the mansion bore witness to the war between the Hapsburgs and the Venetians. They remodelled it into an exquisite renaissance villa in the first half of the 17th century. The villa was not spared during the two World Wars, and in 1948 it was also struck by fire. Since the 1960s much effort has been made to renovate and revitalise the dilapidated building, which was then successfully reopened in 2013. Enjoy the unique character of the past and contribute to co-creating its bright future.
