ANNO DI FONDAZIONE
The Zorzon winery is based on a rich farming tradition and was founded at the beginning of the 19th century at Brazzano near Cormòns in the province of Gorizia by Luigi Zorzon, the grandfather of the present owner Giorgio Deganis.
The familiy-run winery (8 ha) is situated among green hills in the heart of the Collio respecting both tradition and nature. The company produces young and fresh DOC COLLIO white wines (Friulano, Malvasia istriana, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon), Ribolla Gialla IGT and DOC COLLIO red wines (Cabernet Franc, Merlot).
Giorgio Deganis, produces the excellent wines. His Austrian wife Petra is the business administrator and also responsible for winetastings and wine seminars. She takes great care of her customers and organises trips to Friuli for individual tourists and companies.
The vineyards are situated in an excellent position, occupying both the plains and hillsides of the DOC Collio area, which is subjected to strong thermal waves by night and day, mild temperatures and a constant breeze from the nearby Adriatic Sea. The soil is principally composed of marlstone, rich in mineral salts and ideal for wines.
The Zorzon Winery works with international markets: Italy, Austria, Germany, Irland, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Poland, USA (Florida, California, Colorado), Japan, Russia.
