Nudging up against Slovenia and Austria, Friuli-Venezia Giulia’s name has been made on the back of characterful, whistle-clean white wines which seem to directly echo the purity of the region’s mountainous terroir; however, this doesn’t even begin to tell the full story.
Here you will also find generous and elegant reds, not to mention a swathe of idiosyncratic wine styles found nowhere else – anyone for a super-macerated, copper-coloured Pinot Grigio that’s been aged on its lees for two years?
We hope Members will be similarly enthused and delighted to welcome Matteo Bellotto and Angelo Turi from Friuli-Venezia Giulia’s consorzio, as we taste the nuances of a region which plays host to 66 different varieties planted on a complex array of soils.
Aided by in-depth data presented via Google Earth, Members will embark on a journey deep into the viticultural tradition of a region whose uniqueness is perfectly transmitted through its wines.

2021 Adriano Gigante, Friulano Vigneto Storico
