Discover with us  the magic of Italian wine heritage

krater-wineOenotria, “land of vines”, this was how the ancient Greeks called  Italy. Its variety of landscapes and climates, from the Alps to the shores of Sicily through  chains of hills, mountains and volcanoes, offers an astonishing range of grape varieties that have been cultivated for thousands of years  in their terroirs.

Under the Romans,  vines were planted throughout the Empire, grapegrowing and winemaking techniques became more advanced, the varietals that best matched soil and climate were selected to improve  quality.

The concept of vintage already existed, as the ancient books report that the fabled Opimiam wine of 121 B.C., an excellent vintage of Falernum, was aged and drunk decades later. 

This red thread that leads to modern times was never cut, though invasions, wars and fights split the country into city states, duchies, kingdoms along two thousand years of entangled events . 

Enjoy a glass of History!

I’ve always been in love with the white wines of Friuli Venezia-Giulia, a region at the far east of Italy. There are many fine indigenous varieties with a distinctive flavour, and passionate winegrowers devoted to their terroirs.

Like Hilde Petrussa, a refined lady who makes Richenza, a perfect example of the distinctiveness of Friuli wines. It is a blend of old native varietals : Malvasia Istriana, Tocai Friulano, Picolit, plus a touch of Riesling.
