Friuli and Alto Adige - Two great white wine districts ready to be discovered!
These two regions have a fascinating history including being part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire before the Unification of Italy.
This wine tasting on 19th May will explore the 2 terroirs, the distinctive styles of wine they produce and the perfect match they make for the complex cuisines of both regions
Both Friuli and Alto Adige in the north-east and north of Italy produce some of the finest white wines in Italy on a par with the best around the world. This great success has been achieved in a relatively short time. The reason for this is their incredible terroir and microclimate that are ideal for white wines. Today a number of artisan producers have emerged as producing exceptional world class white wines. Their obsessive search for excellence in choosing the best sites and in refining winemaking practice is now paying off
Among the producers represented, Cantina Terlano, Hofstatter (Alto Adige) as well as Borgo del Tiglio, Miani (Friuli) are at the forefront of their field and the inspiration of white wine producers around Italy.
