Venica & Venica is a family owned estate with 28 ha of vines in the Dolegna district of Collio, near the Slovenian border. It was established in 1930 when Daniele Venica purchased Ronco del Cero. Today the winery is one of Friuli’s most famous and respected estates and is well-known for making highly textural and aromatic whites that use little to no wood in the production of their wines. Giampaolo now has taken over the estate from his father Gianni and uncle Giorgio. Venica & Venica’s vineyards are spread over 7 different hills from 300-400 meters above sea level — each with its own distinct micro-climate. This great terroir provides unique characteristics to each of the vines and, when blended together, creates a wine of great complexity.
