Attems

The history of Attems in Friuli has ancient origins. Numerous historical testimonies fully document its presence in the territory, its network of commercial, social and political connections at the highest level and its profound interest in wine production.
The estate covers 79 hectares of terraced slopes to the west of Gorizia. The slopes face the south and thus are protected from both the cold winds from the north and the “bora” blowing from Trieste. The terroir offers a particularly suitable substrate for viticulture. Already at the end of the 19th century, it allowed Friuli Venezia Giulia to be one of the first Italian wine regions in which, in addition to its native grapes (Ribolla Gialla, Friuliano), other noble varieties were introduced, like Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Merlot. At Attems, the vineyards are located very close to the sea, less than 15 kilometres from the Adriatic coast. The refraction of sunlight off the Gulf of Trieste gives the Collio an intense light. This generous luminosity ensures optimal ripening of the fruit. This light, together with the notable temperature changes between day and night, create a climate ideal for the production of excellent white wines.
