Collio is an area which produces precious wines over approximately 1,600 hectares. In 1968, it was one of the first to be awarded the Controlled Designation of Origin.
From the hills of San Floriano and Oslavia above Gorizia to those of Ruttars, Lonzano and Vencò on the banks of the Judrio, which once marked the border between Italy and Austria, gentle hills flow one after the other, dotted with tiny villages, vineyards and farms, where you can taste the typical local products.
An original mix of traditions from Friuli, Austria and Slovenia combined with excellent white wines.
The white autochthones, often numbered amongst the best wines in Italy, produced on the Collio are: Friulano and Verduzzo friulano, Ribolla gialla, Picolit and Malvasia, side by side with the international Chardonnay, Pinot bianco and grigio, Sauvignon, Riesling renano and italico, Müller Thurgau and Traminer aromatico. Collio bianco is carefully mixed variety of different types of white wines. The red wines cultivated are: Merlot, all the Cabernet and Pinot Nero.
