The history of Roccat is the story of the Codello family from Valdobbiadene, who in 1929, – after dividing the property between brothers, as was traditional in those times, – moved to their share of the property in “Rocat e Ferrari” Road. This was an ancient road, built by the family in the late 18th century in order to have access to their respective pieces of land.
The origins of our hospitality
The Codello farmhouse was just before the “Crosera ai Santi”, the junction that was named after the votive images painted on two trees on either side of the road: Sant’ Antonio da Padova (Saint Anthony from Padua) and the Sacred Family.
It was in their name that the Codello family dedicated their first inn, called “Betola ai Santi” in which locally produced wine was sold and where locals and passers -by were made welcome with the typical Codello hospitality, which today is still one of the family characteristics.
The land of Superiore
“The “Superiore” DOCG hills are situated in the northern part of Treviso, one hour away from Venice, along the natural amphitheatre that is situated between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. As the tourist leaves the plains and goes towards the north of Treviso, the imposing Dolomites become visible. Here we find a totally new and striking landscape made up of alternating steep and gentle slopes upon which infinite vineyards crisscross. This territory is rich in beauty, suggestive and full of historical and artistic tourist attractions, located between the many hamlets scattered here and there, in which one can look for historical evidence of man’s presence and his culture.” From: coneglianovaldobbiadene.it
The land of Superiore is now visitable thanks to the Prosecco ring-route, a 15 kilometre footpath that winds through the production areas of Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG including the villages of San Pietro di Barbozza, Santo Stefano and Saccol. You can go on foot or by mountain bike but to maximise your experience it would be advisable to go with a guide.
The route is signposted and during the year various cultural events take place within the area, e.g. Vignarte. sanpietrodibarbozza.it
