" From our love for our homeland, came the desire to have our name on one of the typical products of excellence of the territory : the grapes and the wines it produces." D.M.
Our wine comes from the flats in the Friuli area, from a terrain rich in minerals and sheltered from the cold northerly winds. This richness of the soli originates from the nearby alps, with the minerals transported to the plains over the centuries via the flooding of the rivers Meduna, Cellina and Tagliamento. This area is known as’ le Grave’.
This area is extremely flat and is characterised by a stony surface, all features which emphasize the temperature difference between day and night. The gentle climate created by the vicinity to the Adriatic sea serves to calm the otherwise harsh conditions and creates a microclimate ideal for developing extraordinary wine.
That’s why we decided to grow our grapes here, right in the middle of Le Villotte in the town of San Quirino, located in the province of Pordenone. Our grapes are typical of the north east of Italy and ideal for our soil, which although at first glance is seemingly inhospitable, in reality conceals unique conditions to create products of the highest quality.

These features make it excellent for aperitives, an ideal companion for many starters, particularly with seafood.

Two cousins, a bet and a gold medal!
FROM BEIJING 2008 TO LONDON 2012
Daniele had finished competing at the Beijing 2008 Olympics and had started his preparations for London 2012.
Part of this was to spend an increasing amount of time in London training and he therefore started spending more time with his cousin Federico who was already residing here.
This is where the bet was born, that they would buy a plot of land to create a vineyard in Pordenone if Daniele won a gold medal at London 2012.
THE GOLDEN VINEYARD
Daniele won gold for Italy at the 2012 London Olympics in the kayak slalom event reminding Federico about the bet.
In 2014 Daniele and Federico started their first commercial wine brand with a traditional Prosecco recipe originating from the region they come from: Friuli.
