The vineyards, about 150 hectares, entirely cultivated crop of lives, extending in a territory recognized, what is the Friuli, since the time of the ancient Romans who, retreating from the coastal area to the hinterland, began the great tradition of wine in this region.

The production is a good choice on the best grapes recognized in all the world as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, along with other varieties.
