About the Rocca Bernarda winery (Friuli):
Rocca Bernarda is steeped in history and has long been a point of reference in Friulan enology. It is among the first wine estates, dating back to 1559, and considered one of the finest in Friuli. Situated in the superb location of Rocca Bernarda, it enjoys a unique microclimate and boasts spectacular terraced vineyards protected by the Julian Alps. The soil, formed over 40 million years ago, is a mixture of sandstone and marl that yields complex wines which reflect the region’s character with an unmistakable minerality. Rocca Bernarda has contributed greatly to the awareness of and appreciation for its native grapes, particularly the Picolit, revitalized by the illustrious Perusini family who owned the estate.
About the Castello di Magione winery (Umbria):
Castello di Magione is a magnificent medieval castle originally built as a hostel for pilgrims travelling to Rome in the XII century. Wine production here began in the Middle Ages, and remained an important influence throughout the history of viticulture worldwide. Its vineyards nestle into the hills that encircle Lake Trasimeno in Umbria, where abundant sunshine and perfect exposure ensure delicious grapes.
