1921: QUASI CENTO (almost one hundred) years of history and the work of four generations, today the firm ANTONUTTI VINI is run with passion by Adriana and Lino, Caterina, Nicola and Riccardo. About fifty hectares in the very heart of the Grave del Friuli appellation area, it is far from the more glamorous wine regions of Italy and away from the spotlight, but it is THE key to interpreting our history throughout the years and our knowledge. The Grave del Friuli region: far from the more glamorous wine regions of Italy and away from the spotlight, but it is the key to interpreting our history throughout the years and our knowledge. The area of Friuli Grave covers more than one third of the wine extension of Friuli Venezia Giulia, where the Meduna, Cellina and Tagliamento rivers have left huge quantities of dolomitic limestone and dragged it to the valley. This area is protected from the North winds and benefits at the same time from the good effects of the nearby sea. Our grapes grow in Barbeano, a pebbly land, with a high day-night temperature swing: that’s why our grapes can be harvested late, containing more flavors and fragrances. A devoted land, in which there is a place intimately linked to the roots of wine: RAUSCEDO, a village at the feet of the Carnic Pre-Alps, where since 1933 more than 250 vine nurseries have produced about 70 million young grafted vines per year, which are exported all over the world: the famous “Barbatelle”. The choice of following our own path continues: as a matter of fact, the Winery has recently also acquired the rich lands of Clauiano, where red grapes are grown in medium textured clayey soils.
