The winery is based on a rich farming tradition and is lead in its third generation by Giorgio Deganis with his wife Petra, the grandson of the founder.
The winery is spread across 8 hectars, cultivating D.O.C. Collio and Isonzo wines. As members of the Consortium for the protection of the wines of COLLIO they have to follow strictly the Regulations for producing DOC COLLIO wines.
Situated in the north-east of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, the Collio is a small hilly area bordering Slovenia. This area of Italy has unique soil and climatic conditions. The soil is called “ponca”; it’s marl and sandstone and makes Zorzon’s wines mineral, unique and very aromatic.
The breezy climate, rolling hills and significant temperature fluctuations make the Collio one of the best-suited areas for producing fine autocthonal white wines like Friulano, Malvasia and Ribolla Gialla and international wines like Sauvignon and Pinot grigio. Zorzon produces also two precious red wines, typical for the area: Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
As traditional, however, innovative family enterprise have positioned strongly in the international market and are glad about customer in the whole world. The main export markets are Europe, Japan, USA and Russia.
