The winery Barchessa Loredan – located inside its namesake 16th century Palladian Barchessa (porticoed annexe) in Selva del Montello – is focussed on the production and direct sale of its own wines, obtained from blending DOC grapes typical of the Venegazzù area, as well as a distillate. The estate comprises 50 hectares of vineyards in the Selva and Venegazzù districts and is managed by the Countess Nicoletta Loredan Moretti degli Adimari.
The Barchessa lies in the midst of these vineyards and is approached by a long avenue of hazelnut trees from the trunk road “Schiavonesca” (Montebelluna to Conegliano), which offers a clear view of the building.
Barchessa Loredan in Selva del Montello (Treviso) is a magnificent example of Palladian architecture. The aristocratic residence was built in the 16th century and was originally part of a vast complex that included a large villa, which was destroyed in 1840.
Owned by the noble Venetian family Loredan, it is they who are responsible for the latest restoration.
Today all that remains is the impressive Barchessa plus the entrance gates and some of the enclosing walls. The building features a portico, a single bay in depth, consisting of nine keystone arches with volute framed by Doric pilasters supporting a moulded entablature extending the entire length of the ground floor.
The first floor rises above the portico and comprises a very large, perfectly restored attic where the Loredan family’s most significant artefacts are kept.
