Food and wine

Those who arrive in Caorle for the first time will shortly discover that they are not in an ordinary sea resort pivoting exclusively around its beach, but rather in a small charming and welcoming town, with its maritime traditions and its strong attachment to the surrounding agricultural territory.

This all finds its best expression in the local cuisine, of which Caorle’s chefs exalt the great qualities by attentively preparing and presenting each dish.

The core ingredient for most dishes is fish, freshly delivered daily to the local fish market by a large fleet of small fishing boats. The nutritive value of some local fish and shellfish, such ascapesante (scallops), moscardini (small octopuses), and canestrelli (small scallops) is universally renown by chefs and nutritionists.

Area to be discovered

A short bike ride on the new cycle tracks takes you to the largest farm of the area, the Azienda Agricola Ca’ Corniani, with its fields of corn, soy, wheat, its eel-breeding centre and vast vineyards. These wines can be tasted in the old cellars that have been recently restored.

Wine region

Caorle is situated in a strategic area for wine production: a few kilometres west is the D.O.C. zone of Basso Piave, where several small wine-producers companies produce wines of great quality of the following grapes: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Raboso, Pinot noir and Pinot grigio, Merlot, Tocai, Verduzzo and Chardonnay. Close to the Basso Piave area, is located the D.O.C. area of Lison–Pramaggiore, also known as the “la strada dei vini dei Dogi” (the Doges’ wine route), as Venetian families used to make their wines in this area. Here, wine producers signs still bear the Saint Mark Lion, symbol of the Venice Republic. The typical grapes of the territory are, in addition to the ones already mentioned for the Basso Piave, the Malbech, the “Refosco dal peduncolo rosso”, the “Verduzzo dolce”.
