The Venissa Estate in Mazzorbo

A two minute walk from the Burano vaporetto stop, just beyond the bridge that connects the islands of Burano and Mazzorbo, is located the Venissa Estate: a walled vineyard open to the public, where you can walk and relax in the magical atmosphere of this place.

The walled Venissa vineyard hosts the Dorona vineyard of Venice, a native Venetian grape, which had almost disappeared after the great "acqua alta" of 1966.

In addition to the vineyard you can visit the vegetable gardens, managed by nine pensioners of the island, who in the spring months produce the famous "castraure" (artichokes) of Mazzorbo.

Part of the vegetables produced in the vegetable gardens is used in the Michelin-starred Venissa Restaurant, and in the Osteria Contemporanea, which offers more informal cuisine.

At the Venissa's Osteria it is possible to stop just to drink a glass of wine, enjoying the peace of this green oasis in the Venice lagoon.
