Region in the north-east
The region in the extreme north-east of Italy, in the centre of a triangle formed by Venice, to the west, Austria to the north and Slovenia to the east, lays claim to solid oenological traditions and to 15,400 hectares of vineyards, of which 60% produce white grapes and the remaining 40% red grapes.
Friuli Venezia Giulia is divided into eight wine-growing areas with D.O.C. denominations: Collio, Grave, Isonzo, Carso, Aquileia, Latisana, Annia and Colli Orientali del Friuli. The latter denomination is known throughout the world as an area dedicated to the production of white wines of great excellence and elegance.
