Premio eccellenza Friuli DOC 2017 a Lis Neris
Wine growing is really important for the economy of this region. In the last thirty years this branch succeeded in renewing itself, creating a range of opportunities unthinkable in the past. Old and new generations are working together, sharing different knowledge and common values.
Friuli Venezia Giulia is a bridge between Latin and German cultures; its wines embody the fusion of the Mediterranean dream with the northern precision. Today, wine is not only a product to sell, but also a way to bring this land around the world and the world in this land.
I recall with a smile when, back in the Seventies, my grandmother, who was a woman of Austro-Hungarian culture, used to tell me that we were not ready for what she used to call “fine” wines. At that time she was right, but now things have changed and she would be proud of it as well.
