Ruttars, Italy ... the vineyards....and more ...

View Larger Map

Ruttars is in the middle of the Collio Goriziano  
in the region of Friuli Venezia-Giulia.

With a car you could be in  Udine, Gorizia, Aquileia or
Cividale in minutes and in less than one hour, Trieste, Grado o Lignano.
The surrounding area is suggested for the bike lovers,
starting from the Wine Road  which proceeds through
the cultivations of wine, in the famous Collio area.

The link on the "Wine Road" is a new Italian blog
I came across when doing some research.

A lovely church at the top of the winding road....

unfortunately it was closed.

and one last view....

A fantastic area to visit ,
I am sure you will agree!!


  1. yes fantastic view thanks for sharing a beautiful trip!

  2. Wow. Spectacular scenery and sunshine. My husband discovered cousins in northern Italy. We'll have to go back and visit them

  3. Anne your photos are spectacular. We do not drink much Italian wine as we do not see it for sale here in France. That last photo is stunning. Hope all well over there. Diane

  4. Gorgeous! I just love all those wonderful italian names. You must have a blast and the food fantastica!

  5. The views in your photos are absolutely amazing - such wonderfuly countryside, and so very Italian! I expect you are hoping that you will get back there again some time.

  6. I bet the air smelt fresh and crisp. I'm taking a deep breath with closed eyes and trying to imagine standing in one of your photos!

  7. I did not go to the north or east of Italy, but I still want to. These are lovely photos, especially the mountains. :D

  8. Anne you've done such a wonderful job of sharing your trip details and photos but I really must thank you for sharing Grado! It has been years since we've been there, in fact the first time was when I moved here in 2003. We must go back, it is so gorgeous!

  9. Thanks for sharing another beautiful place that you saw while you were here.
