is a young winery created in 2019.
The first vineyard of Buttrio, where Merlot reaches its best expression, and the Poianis vineyard, where Friulano grows in perfect synergy with the cohesion of the natural elements, are wisely cultivated by the oenologist Enrico De Candido, who has seen in them the concrete realization of one of his passions.
The place is Udine, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy where the excellence of the territories, properly chosen, pays homage to these wines.
- clay rich in red and grey marl with fossils in Buttrio (Colli orientali del Friuli);
- clay with a prevalence of blue and red marl in Poianis (Colli orientali del Friuli).
Age of the vineyards:
from 25 to 80 years
the vineyards are exposed to the south at 200 meters above sea level.
Situated between the Julian Pre-Alps and the high Friulian plain, where the ancient sedimentation (Eocene deposits) gave origin to the typical marl and sandstone, the lands of Poianis and Buttrio are surrounded by woods and the Adriatic Sea, then receded, is only 40 kilometers away from them.

the main concern of the winery is that wines must enhance the territory of origin, realize the characteristics of elegance and finesse by preserving the value of a varietal fruit. Enrico De Candido says that "calibrating the proportion is an exercise of balance".
