The territory, Friuli Venezia Giulia
Precious land of wines
The Friuli region’s territory is formed by 42% mountains, 20% hills and the remaining 38% lowland areas.
740 hectares of vineyards
Unique aromas and scents, in full respect of nature
Large-scale agriculture is carried out almost exclusively in the low, fertile and water-rich plain. This is where corn, wheat, soybeans, sugar beet, and vines are grown, and from which some of the finest Italian wines come from.
The vineyards belonging to the winery’s 150 members
The vineyards of the winery’s 150 members are located in the municipalities around Ramuscello di Sesto al Reghena. Most of the plots of land are in the Friuli Grave DOC area.
The term “Grave” refers to the plain formed by land of alluvial origin which stretches along the Tagliamento river, between the provinces of Pordenone and Udine.
The mountains shelter the land from cold winds, and together with the beneficial effect of the Adriatic Sea, they contribute to the creation of a climate particularly suitable for growing vines.
However, there is another reason which makes the Grave suitable for quality production: the LAND, characterized by a large stony surface, enhances the temperature variation between day and night, thus favoring the growth of grapes with a marked aroma and flavor, which give fragrant and elegant wines.
