LAND AND NATURE
We have a close relationship
with the land and the environment,
made up of respect for nature and its rhythms.
IN THE BEGINNING
THERE WAS THE SEA…
Then Alpine glaciers shaped the valley of the Isonzo river and melt waters shaped its current profile. This is how the land where our vineyards grow was formed into a broad shelf of calcareous gravel.
THIS IS WHERE
THE LIS NERIS
more than 70 hectares of vineyards planted between the Slovenian border to the North and the right bank of the Isonzo river to the South. The surface gravel, locally called “claps”, guarantees drainage and stores the warmth of the sun to help the grapes reach complete ripeness.
AND THEN THERE IS
MORE TERROIR, FEWER VARIETIES
“Claps” is the local name given to the surface gravel that stores warmth and releases it into the soil, helping the grapes to ripen fully: this is what gives us powerful, full bodied wines.
The Bora prevailing winds coming from the North-East create wide day-to-night temperature variations that help the aromatic concentration of the grapes and the creation of balanced acidity. This is how elegant wines are made.
The coexistence and contrast of power and elegance in the wines heighten the complexity of their taste.
Our wines are authentic and original, just like the land where they are produced. Here, Latin and German cultural influences come together to make something unique.
