The Collio is a vast hilly region located in the extreme part of the Friuli flat land, where there are gentle slopes of vineyards, vast forests and small villages. Recognized as one of the most prestigious areas of Italy and the world for wine production and especially for the high quality of its unique and unforgettable white wines, the Collio is a precious gem in the world of wine. Strategically located, surrounded to the north by the Julian Alps and the Slovenian mountains, and to the south far less than 40 km from the Adriatic Sea. The Bora that runs through the Vipava Valley and the air currents that run through the area of Cividale affect the viticulture in this area, ensuring fairly cool temperatures and low humidity for most of the year, while the proximity to the sea makes that the climate is mild during the winter and that wines are characterized by freshness and flavor. 2016 harvest was the first to give us wines with organic certification but for years the work has been done in total respect of nature in the vineyard and in the winery, preferring manual labour and limiting the use of copper and sulphur on the vines, not using animal by-products in the production of wine.

After careful selection of grapes, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The conversion of sugar into alcohol is carried out by yeasts naturally present on the grape skins.
Afterwards, the wine is aged partly in stainless steel tank and partly in French oak barrels for ten months before being bottled.
