The Collio region, a strip of hills bordering Slovenia, is reputed to have one of Europe's most privileged micro-climates for white wines while the red wines are also noted for their appeal. Collio wines are rather more intense than those from Friuli and have impressive richness and length. Founded by Eugenio Collavini in 1896, this family owned house is now run by Manlio Collavini together with his three sons. Located in Udine, they were among the first to vinify Ribolla Gialla - an ancient local variety - and to implement new winemaking technologies. Collavini prides itself on its clean, modern style wines, while still retaining the traditions and grape varieties native to this area. Collavini's "Broy" is a multiple Tre Bicchieri winner and is recognised as one of Italy's top white wines. As keen dog lovers, the Collavini’s very first pet Dachshund “Ribolla” is portrayed on the label.
The estate was founded by Eugenio Collavini in 1896. The vineyards are located in San Floriano del Collio, Cormòns and Gorizia where the Sauvignon Blanc vines are planted to a density 5,000 vines per hectare. Trained according to the cordon spur and Guyot methods, they yield 80 to 90 quintals per hectare. The vineyard soils are marl and sandstone.
