Our History


Lined with the occasional row of poppies, rippled by the faintest of breezes, the landscape is a sweep of vineyards typical of the Trevisan countryside. In Monastier, the vines are grown to encircle a seventeenth century chateau, on the land of an old abbey from which it takes its name.


Here, the road of the great Veneto wines passes by. Here, for centuries the road has suggested welcome rest. It is a surprising place. For while the local D.O.C whites are exquisite – the Pinot Grigio, the Pinto Bianco, the Chardonnay, the Verduzzo – here too, in sweet contradiction, the azure and noble vein marking out these lands on the oenologist’s map changes to red – in Monastier, to the D.O.C reds of Cabernet, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Raboso.


In laying claim to emperor Giustiniano as their forefather, the lords of these lands, the Giustiniani, boast legendary origins.
No less legendary if, since its dawn, it is also the history of the Venetian Republic to have testified to their traditions – to the illustrious characters that have graced their name for centuries: Saints like Lorenzo, Poets like Leonardo, Historians like Bernardo, Doges like Marcantonio Giustiniani.


Stretching back in time, the line is long with these apparitions descending from the altars, descending from the niches and pedestals of monuments to project their glorious shadows as far as us. Will they have come, in the days of their earthly season, from the great palaces of the Lagoon?
Will they have reascended the canals, the gentle current of the Meolo, as far as the stone stepped landing places of these blessed lands?


Lands where the passage of time seems to crystallise in a thousand cordial ways; from the pergolas weighed low with clustered grapes, to the solemn and safely guarded oak barrels of the cellars. Even today – or is it an illusion? – these illustrious and sumptuously attired ghosts could arrive from one moment to the next.


It seems one can almost count the dames and knights who follow them; the musicians with their singular instruments, the impassioned singers, the servants, the animals domestic and exotic.


The tables are always ready. Upon them, in wonderful Murano flagons, shines the ruby of this place’s reds, the amber of its whites. The vineyards around have the colours of many a canvas, the tender melancholy of the closing scene of Goldoni’s “Villeggiatura”.



“Someone sings, somewhere: Woman, raise the hatch, that it creaks not in the opening…”

Sergio Ferrero – Writer and Novelist



It is an ancient song, a melody that goes back to who knows where, who knows when.
The words, adorable in their mischief, are those of a Giustiniani, Leonardo, the poet: his home is here.

The Winery


The Collalto Giustiniani Estate was founded towards the end of the nineteenth century in Monastier (Treviso), in the heart of the plains on the right bank of the Piave river.


The farm extends itself on an area of about 140 hectares, of these 35 as specialized vineyard, with soil rich in claim and limestone, particularly adapt for growing vines finalized for the production of high quality wines.


From these lands derive prestigious D.O.C. wines, red and white, known at national and international level, among which Cabernets, Merlot, Pinot Gris and Prosecco, only to name a few. But it is also a generous land of local vines, as Raboso.


The great number of awards assigned to the Giustiniani Estate, as the three Oscars won at the National Oenological Contests of the D.O.C. Wines in Pramaggiore and the prizes for the D.O.C. and D.O.C.G. wines obtained at the Douja D’Or in Asti, confirm how its wines best express the enoic potential of the typical Piave area, addressing itself towards costumers in search of high quality products.


In the Giustiniani Winery, the grapes, coming from the selected vineyards that surround it, are harvested and vinified with the most modern production processes, in order to comply totally with the strict D.O.C. Piave disciplinary and bring out the best of the intrinsic characteristics of the various types of blend.


The use of the latest technology, respectful of the organoleptic qualities of the wines, along with the methodical and precise control of the production systems, has permitted the Giustiniani wines to obtain the prestigious quality certification issued by Du Pont.


Advanced production methods, quality controls and innovation in finding the best technologies are the key elements of a business management, whose cornerstone is a long term vision which has ancient roots an modern goals.
