Gilbert & Gaillard Awards

Summer is the time for wine guides and contests awards. These are important moments for our winery, when we can challenge ourselves and get an idea our wines’ quality.

Gilbert&Gaillard International Challenge for registered wines is a good example.

Our winery is already well known for PIWI wines, but we’re still located in a territory where traditional grape varieties are widely recognized for their oenological quality.

All our three classic red wines, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Refosco have received a Golden Medal Award. The same award has been given to our three whites, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon Blanc. This is the result of our team work, and we are happy that our activities both in the field and in the winery have been recognized. We also would like to say thank you to all the people that help us harvesting our grapes and bringing them safely to the winery for vinification.

Let’s take a look at Merlot 2021 IGP TreVenezie, this is how it has been praised by Gilbert&Gaillard.

« Red ruby wine with purple nuances. On the nose a scent of red and black berries, with vegetal notes. On the palate fruity aroma of blackberry and wild cherry, tannins later grow and grow gradually. Well paired with roasted meat dishes. » . We see it paired with barbecued meat, while we enjoy the evening sitted in the open air.

Looking Back at 2022 and Planning for 2023

January is the time of the year in which we plan the future and write down new projects and initiatives for our winery. But we also would like to look back at 2022 and take all the good things that are now pushing us towards the future.

Terre di Ger has been reinforcing its position as “resistant” winery thanks to the six Piwi Wines on the market. Rufini Bio Sparkling, a blend of Sauvignier Gris and Bronner, is the latest new entry to our wine selection. Our wines ratings have been growing the whole year gaining important awards in many wine contests. Mach Foundation’s PIWI Wines Contest, in San Michele all’Adige, awarded our Feltro Bianco 2021 as the best absolute wine, while Caliere Rosso 2020 has been awarded as top red wine. Our Caliere Rosso 2020 gained a Grand Gold Medal at the PIWI Wine Award International, while Arconi Bianco 2020 and Feltro Bianco 2020 both gained a Gold Medal in their categories. We look at all these awards with great satisfaction, because all these achievements keep bringing our winery to a new level and give continuity to our project.

Local wines from Friuli are still among our classics and keep getting good ratings. For example Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso has been described by Il Golosario as distinctive of the “the balance between tannins and acidity with good aromatic ending.”

Good wines are the result of good work in the fields, where the vineyards are managed properly the whole year, starting from the very first spring buds. We are now certified Organic growers and are working toward the Integrated Production Standard (SQNPI) for our conventional vineyards. This is our response to the necessity of environmental protection and sustainable agriculture.
