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.

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. But after World War II, areas rich in agricultural traditions were able to benefit from the rise in modern industry and the region as a whole rose from its downtrodden past.

  • Tiamo Pinot Grigio Venezia

    Snoothrank:

    White blossom and potpourri on the very floral nose. Somewhat thin and mellow in the mouth with more floral notes, some mild lemon and a demurringly tart finish that is ever so slightly creamy. Read More

  • Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio Venezia 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is warm and fruity on the nose with stone fruit and citrus notes, apple, lemon and a light nuttiness. More fruit notes of peach, pear and green apple on the palate, this is pleasant and light and unassuming and a classic expression of Pinot Grigio. Read More

  • Bellafina Pink Moscato Venezia

    Snoothrank:

    Effervescent in the glass with rose petal and strawberry aromas. Off dry in the mouth, this would please those with a sweet tooth. This starts out with more strawberry and watermelon but there is a light tart note here that's acidic and lemony. Read More
