The Roncade Castle is over a thousand years old. A gift to the Counts of Collalto in '900, it was destroyed by Cangrande della Scala, then rebuilt in the 16th century by Girolamo Giustinian.
The Giustinians, a noble and prestigious Venetian family, lived in the mansion – formerly known as Villa Giustinian – until the end of the 19th century.Bequeathed to the Barons Ciani Bassetti, the castle has regained its original splendor.
Today, it hosts the winery Cantina di Vini Castello di Roncade and is open to visitors. Tourists can participate in guided tours and spend the night in the elegant apartments of the castle's Bed & Breakfast.
The Roncade Castle is the only extant Venetian Villa featuring medieval walls, with towers and keeps. The walls embrace a historical park including 30 marble statues, the barchessas, an ancient private chapel, and Villa Giustinian with its elegant halls and 18th-century furniture.
The landscape surrounding the Castle is dominated by vineyards where the Cantina di Roncade wine is produced.
