Wine maker notes
A wine obtained exclusively from Pinot Bianco grapes, a varietal of great excellence, particularly suited to hilly areas, which has adapted perfectly to Friuli and in particular to the area of Collio. The Pinot Bianco has been planted in a well ventilated area where the soil is mainly marl (clay and limestone); it produces small compact bunches and the grapes are round and golden in colour. The harvest is by hand, followed by a soft pressing and decantation in absence of sulphur dioxide.This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature. The ageing takes place on the lees for 8 months.

The Schiopetto family has been in the wine business for three generations. Mario Schiopetto founded this legendary estate in 1965, producing wines that would eventually inspire the entire wine industry. Since his death, his children Maria, Angela, Carlo and Giorgio have demonstrated their commitment to running the family winery. The Schiopetto family’s 75 acres of vineyards cover the estate surrounding the former residence of the Bishop of Gorizia in Capriva del Friuli, and the Podere dei Blumeri in the Rosazzo hills that form part of the eastern hills of Friuli. Since the beginning Schiopetto has set a standard of unrelenting quality that covers vineyard practice as well as vinification. The vines are planted in a unique soil type known locally as Ponca, which lends tremendous crushed-mineral clarity to the wines. The heart of the winery is the yeast room, which plays a vital role in the company’s philosophy and production process. This is where the various types of yeast required to trigger fermentation are grown. Cutting edge technology is used to eliminate the risk of error and carry out the art of winemaking. Schiopetto is one of Italy’s foremost white wine producers. It was selected by Wine & Spirits Magazine as Top 100 Winery of the Year in 2006, 2007 and 2009.
