Prepotto, also called Prepot in Friulian and Prapotno in Slovene, enjoys a mild climate because it is encircled by the Julian Pre-Alps, which shelter it from the cold north winds, and the proximity of the plain and the Adriatic Sea, no more than 40 kilometres away. It is located at a veritable climatic tipping point, straddling the sea and the Mitteleuropean region, where warm days and cool nights ensure the temperature excursion the grapevines require.
Located 6 kilometres from Cividale and 25 from Udine, Prepotto is a popular destination for a day outdoors surrounded by nature.
This land is not only located at the intersection of no less than three international trails crossing Friuli-Venezia Giulia (the Cammino Celeste, the Alpe Adria Trail and the Via Alpina), it is also crossed by the Judrio River, with its valley offering a constantly changing natural spectacle with its rich flora and fauna.
The area also offers numerous cultural points of interest. The history of the town is closely linked with that of Castelmonte, the oldest sanctuary in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and among the oldest in all Christendom.
