Producer profile

San Lurnis

In 1874, the family initiated mixed agricultural activities in San Lorenzo, including winemaking, alongside crop and livestock production. Over the decades, despite challenges and the cessation of wine production in the 1970s, the commitment to vine cultivation persisted. By the 1990s, a shift towards organic agriculture began.

Wine region

Friuli–Venezia Giulia, Italy


Friuli-Venezia Giulia, situated in Italy's northeastern corner, has a multifaceted historical tapestry influenced by various civilizations. From its inception under the Romans, it underwent successive dominations by the Goths, Lombards, Huns, Venetians, French, Austrians, Yugoslavs, and eventually, the Italians. The region's capital, Trieste, became an official part of Italy only in 1977, underscoring its intricate geopolitical history.


The terroir of Friuli-Venezia Giulia is shaped by its unique geographical juxtaposition between the Adriatic Sea and the Julian Alps. The central Friuli Grave valley, characterized by its stony terrain, facilitates effective grape ripening, lending distinct acidity to wines, notably Pinot Grigio and Prosecco. The northeastern Julian Alps, home to the Colli Orientali del Friuli and Collio regions, provide an elevation essential for grape maturation, influenced by the distinctive Ponca soil—a mix of marl and sandstone. The Carso Peninsula, near the coast, offers a predictable maritime climate, with soils rich in "terra rossa," limestone, and alluvial sands, fostering the growth of organic and natural wines.


White wines from Friuli-Venezia Giulia are diverse and distinctive. Ribolla Gialla, an indigenous grape, is known for its citrusy notes and pronounced acidity. Friulano, grown in Colli Orientali, Grave del Friuli, and Collio, presents a fragrant profile with high acidity. Verduzzo, notable for its tannins, varies from sweet to dry, while Picolit, native to the Rosazzo region, exhibits aromas of stone fruit and honey. Vitovksa, primarily cultivated in Carso, produces citrus-infused mineral wines, while Pinot Grigio from ancient vines stands out for its complexity and creaminess.

The red wines of the region include Schioppettino, reminiscent of Syrah and Cab Franc, showcasing balance and complexity. Refosco, grown in Colli Orientali, is marked by its minerality and strong acidic finish. Pignolo, primarily found in Colli Orientali del Friuli, exudes flavors of plum and blackberry. Tazzelenghe, known for its texture, and Terrano, native to Carso, complete the red wine profile of the region, emphasizing its dedication to both organic and natural wine production.
