For the top floor of the building that houses our winery and cellars we envisioned a panoramic lounge from which enjoy the view of all our vineyards. Indeed, from here the eye is drawn across the vineyards and the horizon beyond, crowned by the Collio hills, the Karst highlands, and the hill overlooking the village of Medea.
Our vineyards lie part near Cormòns, which is ideal for growing grapes that give refreshing, fruit-driven white wines, and part in the area between the villages of Mariano and Corona, which are more suitable for red wines.

We strongly believe that the quality of a wine originates in the vineyard. We opt for high vine density, 5,000/6,000 vines per hectare, on grassed-over rows. In summer we carefully thin the clusters to achieve the highest quality possible. We have implemented a drip irrigation system, being convinced that it is the only method that fully respects the balance of the plant, and we carry out leaf removal by hand.
The yields are kept low, reaching a maximum of one to one and a half kilograms of grapes per plant. Following this method we obtain healthy grapes with a high sugar concentration, which is ideal to provide structure and longevity to the wine without losing its freshness.
For our lighter wines we choose to harvest the grapes early and leave some rows of grapes for late harvest. The grapes of each vineyard are vinified separately, and only at the end of the process do we assemble the wine to maintain the best balance between body and acidity.
Good vineyard management makes it possible to reduce the quantity of sulphites added. Our wines contain less than 80 mg/l, which is less than that provided by law for organic wines, where the quantity allowed is up to 100 mg/l for red wines and 150 mg/l for white wines.
