In the heart of Venice: the Venissa Wine Resort

Venissa Wine Resort is an enchanting estate in the heart of Mazzorbo, the island that makes up Native Venice along with Burano and Torcello. With an almost fairy-tale setting, the location is a combination of flavors, art, and colors that allows guests to enjoy the beauty of the location. In addition to its central location, which allows guests to reach Venice in half an hour by vaporetto, Venissa is a wine resort that consists of a vast cultivated area of about two hectares and is an excellent example of a walled vineyard. It may be the medieval walls that surround it, the buildings of worship that tell the story of this city and the scent of the vineyards that exhales throughout the estate, yet Vinessa expresses all the enclosed enogastronomic richness of the region. The chef has great imagination and is in constant communication with the sommelier, ready to recommend the best wines for each dish. This means that each bottle is chosen with the utmost care, to enhance fish dishes caught directly in the lagoon and the freshest vegetables grown in the garden behind the facility. Respect for seasonality, the exaltation of raw materials and the all-Italian cult for first courses make this the perfect location to live a wine experience in the name of beauty and culture.
