    About the winemakers
    La Tunella
    Friuli
    La Tunella

    The history of La Tunella and its most precious fruit, the grape, is inseparable from the territory of the Colli Orientali del Friuli and the mixed soil of sandstone and marl that can be found there. "ponca" called - connected. The Cantina in the small village of Premariacco, twelve kilometres east of Udine, can also be described as a modern and functional model company that can look back on a considerably large assortment and impressive sales volumes. Founded by Min Zorzettig between the world wars and later continued by his son Livio, the winery is in the hands of the third generation of the family and is now managed by the young but very experienced brothers Massimo (marketing) and Marco (vine care). Both are supported by their mother Gabriella and their wives Romina and Barbara. The mostly white wines of the Friulian winery reflect the century-old know-how of the Zorzettigs and convince with their unmistakable clarity on the palate and in the nose.

    As a young oenologist, Luigino Zamparo, a friend of La Tunella, already has the knowledge and routine of a cellar master with many years of experience. The technologies of the architecturally beautiful company are state-of-the-art. The dynamic and well-rehearsed team has plenty of space for wooden barrels of different sizes in the cellar, which serves the various winemaking processes extremely functionally on two levels. The grape drying room is equipped with controlled ventilation and cooling.

    The vines are cultivated according to the traditional Guyot method and the Friulian Monocapovolto (high vine with overhang). The yield of the vineyards of La Tunella has been limited to between 7,500 and 9,000 kilograms per hectare in order to improve grape quality. The assortment reaches from the classical red and white wines over Cuvees and Trockenbeerenauslesen up to white top wines from high-quality autochthonous sorts, which are released one year later than the basis wines for the sales.
