The first La Roncaia wines were produced in 1998 in the small village of Cergneu, in the northern corner of Colli Orientali del Friuli, just 5 miles from the border with Slovenia. About 250 metres above sea level, maritime breezes protect the vines from the cold northern winds; the grapes benefit from the longer ripening period developing intense flavours. They farm some very old vineyards which produce tiny yields of high-quality grapes.
From the cold northern regions to the sizzling south of Sicily, Italy is a kaleidoscope of colours, flavours, grapes and styles from regions such as Barolo to lesser-known Montefalco and Etna.Explore Italy
