Di Lenardo Winery
The Di Lenardo family has a long-standing tradition in cultivating vines in Ontagnano.
However, it was only through the production of the 1987 vintage bottles that the quality of their company took an enormous leap forward, thanks to the decision to only use grapes produced in their family vineyards, flanked by the planting of new specially selected varieties, an increase in the density of the vines, which grew to 6000 per hectare, decisive pruning, and other salient actions fundamental to the management of our vineyard that produce quality wines.
Today, the grapes are strictly handpicked. Refined methods of vinification, based on principles of physics and electronic temperature control during the fermentation phase are implemented. Consequently, the quality of the final product and its unique taste is even further enhanced.
They only use cutting-edge technology during the production of white wines. This guarantees top quality for their bottles and maintain their reputation as the most advanced cellar in the Grave area.
The “DI LENARDO VINEYARDS” Estate produces quality wines from its four large family owned vineyards situated in Ontagnano (UD), in the heart of the FRIULI region.
VIGNE DAI VIERIS, VIGNE DA SAN MARTIN, VIGNE DA LIS MARIS and TIARE D’ALBE are the names of our four large vineyards. They stretch across around 40 hectares of the 150 hectares of the entire estate.
The winery also rent five hectares of vineyards in the Aquileia doc area, and they personally “control” and harvest approximately four hectares in the Colli Orientali DOC area. Consequently they currently work directly upon a total of approximately 50 hectares.
