Italy, Friuli Venezia Giulia

Mario Schiopetto is recognised as the true father of Friulan oenology, transforming the wines of the region from the once traditionally heavy and alcoholic to the better known fresh and aromatic wines produced today. His was a philosophy of simplicity, technology and sensitivity, all of which is continued by the new generation, Maria Angela, Carlo and Giorgio who today manage the estate. These are Italy's finest white wines.
