ABOUT LIVIO FELLUGA
In over 100 years of age, the founder and patriarch, Livio Felluga, was accredited with innovating and mastering modern winemaking in Italy. Back from the Second World War he sealed a deep bond with the hill side of Friuli by reviving the vineyards of Rosazzo. It is 1956 when, anticipating the appellations of origin, he chooses an ancient map of the area to create an iconic label to tell the world the story of his wines. His reputation extends well beyond the region of Friuli and his wines are recognized in a class with the most esteemed producers from around the world.
