The Colli Orientali del Friuli are an icon in world wine production. Beautifully kept, sophisticated, aesthetically perfect vineyards. Breathtaking sunsets. Wine has been made here for centuries; here we have developed a way of working the land, the vines and the grapes that is unique. This is how wines of great elegance are created. At Torre Rosazza we want to bring back the authenticity of the land through the wines. That is why we grow native grape varieties, especially whites, such as Friulano, Ribolla Gialla and the inimitable Picolit. But our land is also one of openness: we put the same care into growing red grape varieties and international varieties, and with the same confidence we innovate our winemaking techniques. This will come straight into your glass: history with a fresh, contemporary flavor.

For us at Torre Rosazza, making wine also means breaking the mold, thinking outside the box. Work on the vines is done by hand: from pruning to harvesting the grapes. For this, no technology has yet surpassed man. We use every soil management technique to allow the vines to withstand drought and high summer temperatures. But the center of innovation is in the winery. Here we bring the same obsessive care that we put into growing and harvesting the bunches, so as to always get the best from the grapes. Our techniques are constantly being developed: such as the bâtonnage, to give more structure to our wines. Such as the presses for maceration and the time on the lees for the cooled grapes in order to increase the aromatic content of the must and the wine. Or the slow, controlled fermentation, at low temperature, to maintain the aromatic characteristics of the harvested grapes.
From the vineyard to the bottle: this is how Torre Rosazza’s production system takes shape, a closed system that is modern and evolving, but always in harmony with nature.
This is our land, our soul, our DNA. Through wine we tell the story of a journey in a strong, frontier land of contrasts.
Native grape varieties
We bring the best of Friuli wine production into the wine glass, starting from the native white and red grape varieties, which we cultivate with meticulous care.
We are confident about our way of making wine, having grown up with the culture and history of our land, guided by the desire to evolve and improve ourselves.
We have always been connected with all of Friuli. Our history is that of our land. A borderland, a crossroads of cultures, an outpost of modernity. A story in which wine has always been the main character.
