The history of wine-making family Attems began several centuries ago, when in 1106 the Bishop of Salzburg granted land Corrado Attemsu. Family files, which are stored in the family residence in Lutsiniko show that even in those ancient times, the family began to take an interest in wine, and materials from 1764 include lists of wines made from varieties Refosco and Ribolla.
In 2000, the family Attems started cooperation with the Marchesi de Frescobaldi - one of the most influential Italian wine dynasties. Attems family and Frescobaldi, which bring together the love of winemaking and the centuries-old tradition, believe that the unique character of the wine and its quality is directly dependent not only on the terroir, but also on feelings that winemakers produce wine. At present, the real estate sector covers 79 hectares Attems terraced slopes west of Gorizia. The climate of this region is ideal for growing grapes. At the end of the XIX century, the region was one of the leaders in the field of wine on the introduction of new technologies and development.
