This is a family owned estate with 28 ha of vines in the Dolegna district of Collio. Established in 1930 when Daniele Venica purchased Ronco del Cero. Today the winery is one of Friuli's most well known and respected estates. Giampaolo now has taken over the estate from his father Gianni and uncle Giorgio. The winery is known for highly textural and aromatic whites that use little to no wood in the production of their wines. Varieties of Sauvignon Blanc, Friulano, Pinot Grigio, Malvasia, Ribolla Gialla, Traminer and Chardonnay are planted to white wine production. Varieties of Refosco, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are planted to red wine production.
The estate has a gorgeous Bed and Breakfast on site, which is an extension of the family's history of running a small guest house since 1940.
The Venicas are local winemakers who appreciate and enhance their traditions with continuous research and innovation:
“The effort that we are always making is aimed at understanding the characteristics of the many microclimates on our property, in order to create a mosaic of the diversity of the various sites, and best exploit the varietal characteristics of every single vine.”
