PHILOSOPHY

The vineyards, the Hills, and the Comellis. A strong bond developed over time through a constant enthusiasm for the future.
The Comelli Family and all of their collaborators share a simple model for life: respect for the land and traditions, courage to innovate, and the essential conviction that the search for quality is the ultimate goal of one's work.

A model for life that is enthusiasm for one's endeavors, for the products that are the fruit of this work, and for the future.

A model for life that requires a long-term vision, a continuous incentive for betterment.

HISTORY

When, in 1946, Paolino Comelli began to acquire those devastated vineyards in Soffumbergo, he had already intuited the potential held in the place and in the land.
For Paolino Comelli, there was one important rule to follow in business, and it was simple: the land never betrays. With this conviction, in 1946, when people were leaving the countryside for the city where opportunities were numerous, Paolino began to acquire abandoned vineyards in the hills of Colloredo di Soffumbergo, in which he intuited great potential.

Comelli succeeded in imparting his love for these hills to his son, Pierluigi. Beginning in 1988 and continuing today, Pierluigi has modernized the wine cellar and the vineyards, in addition to reintroducing the cultivation of olive trees.

Today the tradition continues. Filippo and Nicola, Paolino's grandsons, are following in the tracks created by their grandfather. After spending many years abroad, they have returned to Soffumbergo to respond to their origins.

PLACE

Artisan winemaking from 12 hectares of vineyards in the heart of the "Colli Orientali del Friuli" wine region, where a peculiar microclimate and the experienced workmanship create out-of-the-ordinary wines.
The property extends for 12 hectares in the Denominazione di Origine Controllata Zone of "Friuli Colli Orientali" in the small town of Colloredo di Soffumbergo.

The vineyards, planted in the hills surrounding the family's business, are exposed to the positive atmospheric effects of the Adriatic Sea to the South and are protected by the Prealpi Giulie to the North. The particular microclimate of the area, ventilated and dry, is characterized by accentuated day and night temperature ranges, essential to procuring the uncommon final product.

The terroir - made of marnoso-arenacea rocks of eocene origins - is rich in chalk, potassium, discrete amounts of phosphorous and magnesium, and is ideal for cultivating the hillside.

Combining a limited density per hectare - fixed at 4,500 vines - with a guyot growth system and a vine layout created to favor the quality of single bunches of grapes, sacrificing quantity (2.5 meters between rows; 80 centimeters between plans), we grow healthy grapes keeping intervention in the vineyards to the minimum.

The new cellar, introduced in 2006, is a state-of-the-art winemaking facility. It is organized into four sections respectively dedicated to wine making in steel basins, to refinement in french-oak barrels, to bottling, and to the final refinement in bottles in a temperature controlled environment.
