Pighin family winery is situated in North Eastern Italy’s DOC region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

The Friuli Grave region named after its meager, chalky stone and gravel soils is ideal for white vine varieties. The climate, cool yet moderated by the proximity of water and the sun’s reflective effect on the stony soils, allows a long growing season to ripen the fruit well into autumn.

The Collio property at Capriva, along the eastern border of Grave del Friuli and within sight of Slovenia, lies on some of the sunniest and most beautiful hillsides of the area, all with southern exposure. The yield is limited: only 5 or 6 tons of fruit per hectare.

The Pighin family vineyards are maintained with organic farming methods on 185 ha.
