Awards and honors
This wine is produced in the Collio in Friuli area where the soil is rich of marl and sand with a sub-layer of rocks which becomes the characteristic “ponca”. It is made with a blend of Ribolla Gialla together with the Tocai Friulano and Riesling Renano grapes. The Ribolla Gialla is exposed at south-east, the Tocai at the south and the Riesling at the north-west. This wine rests for 6 years In bottle. There is a refinement period for a part of the blend for 6 months in Slavonia oak barrels of 750 hl. The closing of the bottle is the Stelvin. This choice of the winery is to keep all the fragrances in the bottle and not to let something going in. Since the 1983 this bottle is called VINNAE to reminds the birth of the second son Michele and the work of the five generations that arrived here in 1881. Since the Villanova hamlet, the vinnae is made with Ribolla Gialla.

There is also the indication of the three souls of them: Slovenia, Friuli and Austria.
