Considered one of the three premier wine regions of Italy, Friuli is widely regarded as the home of Italy’s best white and dessert wines: Tocai Friulano, Ribolla Gialla and the rare Picolit are local celebrities while Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Pinot grigio are fine international varieties produced in this area along with some reds of excellent quality and taste such as Cabernet, Schiopettino, Refosco, Merlot and the rare Pignolo. The tour will start with a visit to a boutique winery in the Colli Orientali del Friuli: you will walk through the vineyards accompanied by the owner who will then show you the wine cellar, explain the particular wine making process of his wines followed by wine tasting. Lunch will be in a typical trattoria where you can enjoy delicious regional food and taste Gubana, an exquisite local dessert. In the afternoon, we will visit the charming historical town of Cividale del Friuli founded by the Romans in the 1st century B.C. Driving along a spectacular route, which runs along prestigious wine estates and beautiful countryside we will end our day with a visit to another winery with enchanting views over a breathtaking landscape.
