On a mission to discover the essence of REBULA, we set out in search of Slovenia’s Vipava valley.
PREMATURE easily describes the 2018 vintage in Friuli. While you could also add Fertile and Productive to the mix, it’s the early onset of seasonal change that, for us, begs the deepest reflection.
In REAL winemaking terms, we have not met many along the beaten path who wear their philosophy so comfortably as Fulvio Bressan. Located in Farra d’Isonzo, an outpost of the Collio Goriziano, in Friuli Venezia Giulia, the BRESSAN winery is quite unique.
The Friulani are an instinctive, autonomous, self-starting, energetic, creative bunch of go-getters. They don’t need an excuse or an invitation to do what they believe they must. No surprise Friuli Venezia Giulia is such a WINE-MAKING HOT BED of activity.
Trumpets at the ready…it’s almost that time of year again for the annual pilgrimage to the Pavilions of VeronaFiere. Yes, Vinitaly, the biggest Italian Wine Fair in the Universe, is a monstrous machine of viticultural & oenological dreams. And then some.
