Pordenone province

Pordenone province


Little known but rich in unique landscapes and historic wine factories, the Doc Grave area extends for about 75 hectares on the river Tagliamento, between the provinces of Pordenone and Udine.

The high Friulian plain, close to the pre-Alpine arch, is characterized by a natural landscape of remarkable originality: it is a large area formed by the floods of the Meduna, Cellina and Tagliamento rivers, which over the millennia have deposited huge quantities of calcareous-dolomite material ripped from the mountain by the violence of the waters and dragged down along their riverbed.
The whole plain is formed from rough land in the northern part of the DOC, the minute as the rivers continue their course. The mountains, besides giving rise to the Grave soil, protect it from the cold winds coming from the north. This fact, together with the beneficial effect of the Adriatic Sea, has contributed to the creation of a climate particularly suited to the cultivation of vines. There is, however, another reason that makes the Grave suitable for quality production: the ground, which is characterized by a wide surface, exalts the thermal excursion between day and night, thus favoring grapes with a distinct aroma and wines characterized by a great minerality and rich in perfumes.

Forget the hectic life of big cities and let yourself be immersed in the unique landscapes of this magical province, where time seems to have stopped. History, art, rural landscapes and a culture of good food and good wine are the elements that characterize this territory to be discovered and loved.
