Friuli-Venezia Giulia is located in the northeast corner of Italy, bordering Austria and Slovenia.  The Julian Alps, named for Julius Caesar, preside over the northern landscape, while the south is comprised of villages and towns leading to the Gulf of Trieste. Being as close as it is to the country’s border, it’s historically been a veritable magnet for invasions, by everyone from Attila the Hun to Napoleon. In the 18th century, Charles of Hapsburg opened up Trieste and Fiume as “free trade” ports. But this only served to give Austria access to the Meditterranean and make these trade hubs very prosperous while the rest of the region was steeped in poverty.

  • Bervini Rose Friuli Venezia Giulia

    Snoothrank:

    Light strawberry and melon aromas. In the mouth this is lightly spiced with fruit notes of cherry, strawberry and cranberry, tart and refreshing with a creamy mid palate, nice texture and a sharp bold palate of fresh bubbles and light fruit. Fun and fruity. Read More

  • Also looking good was this earlier circular from Chambers Street. Oregon ... love of Italy (in particular Friuli and Piedmont), or the Saignée of Pinot Noir, inspired by local demand, and his wife Teri's newfound taste for rosés.

  • Candoni Pinot Grigio 2015

    Snoothrank:

    OK, but nothing to write home about - with it's pear like nose it leads with the varietally correct nuances but doesn't really drive home. Drinkable and when cold a hot day quaffer. Read More
