The Colli Orientali del Friuli hills boast layers of marl and sandstone, called “ponca” in our language, formed during the Eocene Epoch and capable of draining the water from frequent rainfall while allowing the vines to find all the natural minerals and nutrients that make our wines truly unique. The earth and the gentle breeze work together to ensure that the health of the grapes is always perfect right up to the day we bring them into the winery.
Every parcel of our vineyards is controlled at every phase of ripening in order to guarantee that the vines and their grapes can make the most of their exposure and micro-climate. In this way, grape clusters arrive in our winery bright and healthy for processing with utmost care, to obtain wines that respect the great work of nature.
Our vineyards, spread across the Friuli Colli Orientali DOC hills, were established in 1970 to protect and promote the specific character and identity of this wine region. The Colli Orientali hills have always been recognized as one of the highest expressions of the quality of the wine of the Region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, as it has been able to count on a wide variety of vines and a great wealth of different terroirs.Go to the map of the vineyards
