Every bunch of grapes, every land, every project which we put into action is a new beginning, a quest to the limits of an ever higher quality.  Passion and dedication have always led us to carry out our work as wine producers with the aim of expressing to its fullest the potential of our land: Friuli.

The estate is divided in two sites, one in the heart of Colli Orientali del Friuli, an area dedicated the production of high quality wines, and one in Moimacco, nearby Cividale, the pearl of Friuli, where there is the family villa and the cellar. The limited dimensions of the Company allow to take the best care of the wineyards and to select the variaties more suitable to these lands. All winemaking procedures are strictly followed, from the collection of the grape harverst to the wine bottling.

In the cellar, tradition and technology have been brought together, the thermo-controlled stainless steel fermentation vats and the French oak aging barrels are used alongside the old wooden vats and the ancient wall tanksThe dedication of the work done in the cellar represents the natural continuation of the work in the vineyards, carried out with enthusiasm and meticulous attention to detail.
