Blending grape varieties in Sharis reconciles the culturally acquired expectations of the local consumer with those of the international wine lover, forming a link between Friuli and the rest of the world. From a winemaking point of view, blending gives the wine balance and complexity. On its own, Ribolla Gialla has aromatics that are not particularly assertive, but its contribution is important, for it gives the blend texture, freshness and vivacity.

History of the producer

In Friuli, and now not only on this land chosen by men and wines, Livio Felluga is a part of the best wine traditions.

A consolidated wine-making tradition that has passed down through five generations, that goes back to when the family was producing Refosco and Malvasia on their native land on the Istria Island.

Seventy years ago, Livio Felluga, firstborn of the fourth generation who has the great privilege of being considered the “patriarch” of the Friulian enology, moved the business to Friuli.

His urge to succeed helped perpetuate absolute and even stubborn love and devotion to the earth.

Today, the company is proud of their hillside in the Collio and in the Eastern Hills of Friuli: over 160 hectares of property, 155 of which being vineyards.
