Lorenzonetto Family

Famiglia Lorenzonetto

The Lorenzonetto family has always handed down the art of wine making and cultivation of vineyards from father to son, scrupulously observing old traditions whilst keeping abreast of modern viticultural and oenological techniques. The winery is located in the lowland area of Friuli, more specifically in the wine-growing area known as “Friuli Latisana”.

The soils here are distinguished by their tenaciousness coming from the lime and clay, and the good level of microelements results in balanced development of the vineyards.
The closeness to the sea provides beneficial, relatively warm saline air-currents, creating an exceptional microclimate, marking for tasty fragrant wines. 

Our production area has been well-known since the 15th century when the son of Doge Andrea Vendramin Bartolomeo, who had come to live in the Latisana feudal estate, established a highly regarded horse breeding farm, and encouraged cultivation, especially vine cultivation, the reason why the “Vino Furlano della Tisana” was distributed in Venice and enjoyed a great reputation in the capital of the “Serenissima”.

The wine of Latisana was also called “Vino Vendramino”, after Venetian patrician family Vendramin. Over recent decades the Lorenzonetto winery has opted to purchase highly technological wine-producing machinery and stainless steel vats.

The intention is to produce wines with increasing high quality organoleptic properties.
A quality wine is not solely the result of a good winemaking process; behind it all is a fundamental parameter: “THE VINEYARD”.

All the root cuttings re-planted in our vineyards are the result of decades of clone selection, which has highlighted a pre-eminent role among the methods of genetic improvement implemented in key wine-producing countries.

Winter and summer vine-pruning activities are carried out using manual techniques to carefully distinguish the shoots best-suited to quality grape production. Even the harvest is manual, guaranteeing the selection and cleaning of the grapes placed into the containers for transportation to the cellar.

All this, combined with the commitment and professionalism of those who work in our winery, results in wines that meet the satisfaction of all food and wine matching requirements, from the aperitif to the dessert.
