The Vineyard

Vigna Traverso was founded in 1998 by Giancarlo Traverso, driven by his love for the wines of Friuli Colli Orientali. Today, the winery is run by his son Stefano, owner and winemaker. Vigna Traverso is located in Preopotto, near Udine, a few kilometres from the Slovenian border, in the Friuli Colli Orientali area. 22 hectares of vineyards are situated on the hills where terroir, microclimate and altitude are perfect to produce unique white and red wines with a distinctive and elegant personality. Matures in stainless steel tanks and barrels for around 8 months. Aged for a further few months in the bottle. Ruby red tending towards purple. Typical berry fragrance especially of raspberry and bilberry. Intense, acerbic palate.
