“Wine Country!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

We were referred to Relais Russiz Superiore by a Brian Larky of Dalla Terra Wines, one of America's great Italian wine importers. What a treat!

We showed up a bit late as we had traveled from Florence to Venice by train then rented a car to drive from Venice to Capriva del Friuli. Elisa, the Public Relation Manager for the property and wineries, personally waited for us to arrive as we did not have cell phone capabilities while in Italy. She was absolutely amazing from the time we arrived until the moment we left. Thank you so much Elisa!

We originally had a room booked for 1 night and decided to change it to 2 as we didn't think we would have enough time to truly appreciate the property. Great idea! The property sits on a hilltop about 10km from the Slovenian border. At night, there is an amazing view of (I believe) the Kolovrat Alpine Mountain Range in the not too far distance. The property consists of 6 rooms and a suite, but we had the place to ourselves!

The guest property was recently renovated or possibly just built. Our room was perfect. Quiet, clean, comfortable and, thankfully, cold, as it was very hot everywhere in Italy in July! The bathroom was very modern with a spacious shower. All of the ground level rooms have a somewhat private courtyard while the upstairs rooms have balconies.

Elisa made some local recommendations for dinner, but we opted to explore the area and drove into a town on the Slovenian border called Gorizia. The area is beautiful, so if you have a car with GPS, check it out.

The next morning, we awoke and had a beautiful outdoor breakfast prepared by Elisa. Breakfast included fresh squeezed juices, hot cappucino and espresso, warm pastries, homemade jams and pretty much anything else you could ask for. Delicious!

For lunch, Russiz Superiore wine maker Roberto Felluga treated us to one of the best meals we had in all of Italy paired beautifully with his Sauvignon Blanc. It was absolutely amazing! Italian Sauvignon Blanc with an Adriatic seafood tasting menu. What more could you ask for?

In addition to a tour of the property, Elisa did a private wine tasting with us. We tasted a few wines from both Marco Felluga and Russiz Superiore in both white and red. All were delicious! The property also has complimentary bikes available for guests, which we took full advantage of.

We would definitely love to return to this property in the future!

Grazie,
Roberto, Elisa and Brian!

Great hotel, very new, clean, rooms with fantastic view. Wine tasting tour is for free and the red wine are top of the line. Try to book the rooms at the ground floor since you will have a nice front yeard.

I found Relais Russiz Superiore after doing some research of the area. I wanted to stay at a place that produces wine and do some wine tasting as well. This was the perfect place to stay. (€120.00 a night) My husband and I stayed for one evening. The room was very tastefully decorated and seemed to be very new. There was a great view of the hillside and the vineyards.We spent the day in Subida and had evening drinks in Cormons. The next morning we woke up very early and had a great hike through the vineyards. It is a perfect location if you like hiking- hiking trails abound.The breakfast was a bit scarce and I think that it would be easier if they made it a buffet instead of serving guests. Later that morning we did a proper tour of the cantine and wine tasting- 2 whites and 1 red. Another couple joined us so it was nice to exchange opinions on the wine. Afterwards we purchased a few bottles and we were off. Elisa, the young woman who is basically responsible for everything ( even serving breakfast) was professional and very helpful. the place would be great for a 3 night stay. You are in the heart of the Collio so exploring the area (even on a Vespa) is very easy. Call ahead if you would like to visit the cantines..
