A bit of useful information: Cormons is located in an extremely favourable area since it is 12 km from Gorizia, 16 km from Cividale (UNESCO heritage site), 25 km from Udine and only 60 km from the splendid Trieste, which has the largest square in Europe directly overlooking the sea! Grado, the island of the sun, is 40 km away, while the mountains can be reached in less than an hour.

Friuli Venezia Giulia is a splendid region which deserves being discovered, just like a precious jewel which is mounted among the sea, the Karst, the mountains and the hills.


Collio is that “DOC”area with a Controlled Designation of Origin that extends through the northern hilly belt of Gorizia province, close to the state border with Slovenia, which includes about 1,400 hectares of specialized vineyards.
The soils consist of stratified marls and sandstones of oceanic origin, brought to the surface by uplifting the seabed in ancient times.
These marls easily disintegrate under the action of atmospheric agents, first producing a coarse, then granular and finally very fine loam, creating in the space of a few seasons a ideal terrain for viticulture.
This situation has favoured the vine cultivation, which was introduced to the area as early as pre-Roman times and later spread during the times of the ancient Roman Empire.
Known and sought-after Wines from immemorial time in the ancient courts of Europe, and particularly at the ancient courts of the Serenissima Republic and at the Habsburg imperial court that fought over these districts for a long time.
Modern viticulture was born in Collio in the second half of the last century, with the introduction of valuable varieties of French and German wine grapes, which replaced some old local vines of lesser interest.
A decisive step for the viticulture of Collio is represented by the Decree of the President of the Republic of 24 May 1968 which recognize the designation of controlled origin of these wines.


Isonzo “Esos“, the god of Trade, is the name of celtic river Isonzo dominating the guaranteed quality area of those wines produced along the region it wets.
The Isonzo guaranteed quality area is composed of a ground zone, of about 1.000 hectares of vine-yards, that extends itself to the south of the hilly area between Karst and Judrio.
Isonzo is actually the major maker of the geological conformation of this land.

It has a well-diversified chemical-physical structure; with a calcareous, permeable and porous land conformation, which perfect for vine-growing, passing to alluvial, gravelly and clayey- muddy lands. The climate is quite uniform thanks to the Alps and the Karst which do not allow the penetration of cold winds and the mitigatory action of the sea.

The vine-growing tradition around the guaranteed quality Isonzo area started out with the foundation of Aquileia and the Friulian hinterland colonization.
It is said that the first inhabitants of this countryside, the Venetians, a population who made a living working on the land, imported the vine from Greece, increasing the trade of products grown on their lands.
