Venica & Venica, Pinot Grigio Jesera 2018Regular price $25.00 Save $-25.00
Variety: Pinot Grigio
In the flood of bad Pinot Grigio around the world, there are a few producers that still care about the quality of mainstream grapes. Venica & Venica was founded in 1930 and have always been at the top of the game. Their reputation has been accomplished by incredible vineyards and serious work ethic for many years. 28 hectares of vines in the Dolegna district of Collio sets this family apart from the many grocery store labels seem today. For over 80 years the family has worked only with hillside vineyards. Whenever there is extra money from the vintage, it goes back into the estate in some form of upgrading, either vineyard or winery. The wines always show perfume and texture, something that is lacking most of the wines of Friuli.

Varietal: Pinot Grigio
The Maccan family has sustained three generations of winemakers in Friuli Grave, a region located in the northeastern area of Italy. The owner, Stefano Maccan, sums up the family’s vision with this quote, “My family’s passion for farming grew inside me until it became something more than mere curiosity and turned into determination... the determination to finally produce my own family wine.” Even though the Maccan family had been making wine dating back to 1788, it wasn’t until 2012 that Tenuta Maccan was an established domain. The family creates other bottlings including Chardonnay, a classic Ramato Pinot Grigio, Ribolla Gialla, Sauvignon Blanc, Refosco, and Pinot Nero. Here, the Maccan team pays homage to tradition while innovating with their organic and certified sustainable farming techniques.
