About the Winery
After the Second World War, the people of the countryside village of Friuli in Italy had moved to different places. The place, which was once a wine-rich area, lost its charm after the war. It took an expert winemaker in the name of Livio Felluga to re-establish the wine culture of this place during 1956. Today, the wines of Livio Felluga are known for their exceptional winemaking style. Only the choicest of estate-grown grapes are used for this process.
The white wines from the brand of Livio Felluga are very popular. The best of the lot is the white wine, Picolit, which is a very warm and subtle wine known for its rich acidity and unique sweetness.
