Vineyards of Eugenio Collavini located in the province of Collio DOC and cover the hills around Goritsiano in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, in the extreme north-eastern part of Italy. This area is home to fragrant white wines that are fragrant hints of ripe fruit and flowers, and the rich taste of fresh seduces slight acidity and excellent balance. Vineyards Collio area shaped like a banana and adjoin the boundary of Slovenia. This region of Italy joined only in 1918, just after the First World War, and before that he was a part of both the Republic of Venice and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. As a result, local wines clearly demonstrate the Slavic and Germanic traits, but the Italian style. The Adriatic coast is just 25 km south of Goritsiano. This allows smooth and slightly cool the hot summer temperatures, as well as to align the harsh winter swings. Also important are the fresh sea breezes that blow to the north (towards the hills) at dawn and returned to the south to the coast in the evening. This natural movement of air masses helps to reduce the spread of fungal diseases and allows the vines to grow up healthy. Precipitation has generally intense and short-term rather than long-term nature, which together with a bright sunny climate is perfect for ripening juicy and aromatic grapes.
