La Tunella Estate Winery

La Tunella Estate Winery

Friuli, in the eastern hills of Italy...

Friuli Venezia Giulia, in the extreme North-east of Italy is located in the centre of a triangle with Venice to the west, Austria to the North and Slovania to the east. It is divided into eight separate wine growing areas of which Colli Orientali del Friuli is one of the best known throughout the word. It is an area dedicated to the production of excellent and elegant white wines in particular.

The vineyards are protected to the north by the Giulian Pre-Alps, which serves as a  mighty shield against the chilly winds, and are pleasantly warmed by the mild breezes coming from the proximity of the Adriatic sea.

La Tunella estate owns 70 hectares of vineyards, of which 70% are dedicated to the production of white wines and 30% to red. The winery is fully equipped with a two storey building which is fully functional for the various phases of the vinification, with a fermentation room for white wines in stainless steel vats, a room for  drying  grapes for the passito wines and the room with vats and oak barrels in which the red wines rest. It is all state of the art. A superb, ultra modern tasting room is ideal to appreciate and enjoy the entire range of delicious wines from this superb estate.
