Ronco del Gnemiz

Name of winemaker in photo

Owned and managed by Serena Palazzolo and her sons, Ronco del Gnemiz has been one of Friuli Venezia-Giulia’s leading wineries for more than a decade. The Palazzolo family bought the estate back in the 1960’s, and Serena took over from her father in the early nineties when she returned home after college.

The ten hectares sit atop the hill of Rosazzo and benefit from the cooling Adriatic Sea breezes and the shelter the Alps provide from the not atypical harsh winters. The vineyards are managed organically and are planted on Friuli’s signature ‘Ponca’ soil.

It’s great to see this venerable artisan estate working at such a high level.
