White Wine List

All wines subject to vintage changes

FRIULI–VENEZIA-GIULIA | whites

Friuli is one of the most important areas for white wines in Italy.

The vineyards are planted mainly on poor glacial soils that force the vines to dig deep for nutrients. The resulting wines are complex, intense and fine.

 

“When a man drinks wine at dinner, he begins to be better pleased with himself.”
