The story of the Zorzettig family’s connection with wine begins more than 100 years ago, on the hills of Spessa di Cividale in the heart of Friuli’s Colli Orientali (Eastern Hills), an ideal place for viticulture thanks to its unique terroir and microclimate.
Those who approach our world are fascinated by the diversity reflected in our gestures and habits, and by a landscape that appears wholly unspoilt.

Located near Cividale del Friuli, our vineyards benefit from an ideal terroir and microclimate for viticulture, protected by the Alps from the cold currents of the North and caressed by the breezes from the Adriatic Sea.
