At the far North East of Italy, close to Venice and at short walk from Cividale del Friuli at the border with Austria and Slovenia, Altùris vines benefit of a unique microclimate. The Julian Alps protect them from the cold winds of North, while the breezes from Adriatic Sea smooth and mitigate the climate, offering the vineyards exceptional conditions to produce grand quality wines.
The beautiful hills of Friuli in our mother tongue are called “Altùris”: a geometry of reliefs engraved by vineyards. Exactly the place where Marco and Massimo Zorzettig, heirs of a historical family which has been a symbol of solid entrepreneurship in the wine world for three generations, founded Altùris. The winery is devoted to the creation of unique wines, capable to carry all scents and aromas of our territory grapes. The hills of Altùris are the trademark of our wines, along with the color of earth and the grapes in the various seasons.
The vinification cellar is the heart of Altùris, the safe of our Wines. We wanted it to be made in a hollow, at the base of the heights: in this high-tech structure of top design, our grapes are converged. The production is set for 70 percent to whites and 30 percent to reds.
