our VINEYARDS
our VINEYARDS
Publius Vergilius Maro used to write “apértos bàcchus amàt collés” (The Georgics 37-30 a. C.),
meaning that steep slopes well oxposed to the sun, are the ideal growing environment for the vine.
Here the vine directly absorbs sun rays benefiting from the currents of air draughts and the natural drainage of rainwater.
The Collio is a hilly area in the Gorizia district extending along
the Slovenian border between the rivers Isonzo and Judrio,
It includes around 1300 hectares of highly developed hilly vineyards.

The territory covers a sequence of slopes which develop
almost uninterruptedly along an imaginary east-west line with exstensive surfaces exposed to the sun at midday particularly
suited for a high quality wine production.


the COLLIO

The Collio belongs to the so called "Flysch of Cormons" here the soil is made of alternate layers of marls and sandstones.


The "Ponca" ("marl" in Friulian language) is the best ground for growing vines on hills. It is altered by atmospheric agents and quickly crumbles to scaly fragments, which afterwards decalcify and turn their original leaden-grey hue in a yellowish colour until they dissolve in a clay ground.

the GROUND

The marl makes the ground impermeable causing rainwater to run off its surface thus easily giving rise to erosion.

Because of this phenomenon vine-growers terraced the hills to plant the vines, to avoid the "consumption of the hills and the hoeing up of vineyards.

Over the years these terraces have become a distinctive

feature of our hills and, in some areas, are called "ronchi".


The hills are exposed to a sea breeze which prevents air and humidity stagnation and the risk of mould developm

ent.

Furthermore, the vineyards in the hills are strongly effected by seasonal changes and by the daily temperature excursion This grants the must a good acidity degree as well as production

and enrichment of freshness and aroma.
