Gorizia - Friuli-Venezia Giulia - Italy
Zuani is a family-owned winery in the Collio DOC of Fruilli Venezia Giula specializing in terroir- focused white wines in the hills of San Floriano and named after the ancient local name for the estate's land. Set in wildly rolling hills far in northeastern corner of Italy- with close cultural ties to Austria and Slovenia.
Patrizia Felluga is the 5th generation of a viticulture family dating back to late 19th century Istria, Croatia. In 2001, she acquired the vineyard from a well known old farmer. It was then, when she purchased the lands, that she made her dreams a reality. Growing only white grapes she and her 2 children, Antonio and Caterina, make 4 fabulous wines. Zuani's wines are like Patrizia- lovely and most memorable with a warm lasting impression that keeps you smiling.

Sodevo pinot grigio
Sodevo pinot grigio is a classic! Vinified in stainless steel tanks and kept on the lees for about 5 months before bottling, preserve its characteristics and integrating its elegant and refined aromatic profile. Tangy and minerally; a versatile wine that so food friendly.
Sodevo ribolla gialla
Vinification: Soft pressing, cold maceration in stainless steel tanks, five months on the lees. 10% of the wine is vinified in oak
The Ribolla is a wonderful food grape, savory and delicately fruity with clean citrus, jasmine and apple and well-balanced acidity.
Reviews: Kerin O'Keefe Wine Enthusiast
The Zuani Collio Bianco ‘Vigne’ is a blend of Tocai Friulano, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, andPinot Grigio grapes, each variety vinified separately in stainless steel. The wine beautifully exhibits the characteristics of classy Collio fruit - a rich yellow hue and broad palate with apricots, ripe peach, melon, and tomato leaf over a refreshing and crystal-clear framework.
