Location and history

The Estate is located in Cervignano del Friuli, within the district of Aquileia.

This is where Italy’s best Pinot Grigio originated, in the far northeast of the country (Friuli) where the wines are more concentrated and aromatic because of the cool hilly conditions.

Tenuta Ca’ Bolani enjoys the proximity to the sea and the breezes that blow in from the Grado lagoon.

“The most exciting part of my job as winemaker is unpredictability, because each harvests are different from one another; each vintage always brings something new to discover”.
