The “Friuli Colli Orientali” DOC territory includes the hilly area in the province of Udine, covering a total of more than 2,000 hectares of vineyards.
The Perusini vineyards are one of the only fifty Italian vineyards mentioned in “I vignaioli storici”, a book by Luigi Veronelli. Veronelli was an Italian Italian gastronome, wine critic and intellectual who believed that great wine was born in the vineyard. He was one of the first people to introduce the importance of the terroir, working with the soil itself and carefully selecting grapes.
Owing to the quality of the soil and the family's improvements based on their studies, it is no wonder that their vineyards made it into the prestigious selection.
Even today, the family strive to grow their vineyards in the most sustainable way possible by focussing their production on organic principles. Despite the fact that the terraces in the hills make mechanisation difficult, the Perusini company does not use chemical weeding and only the cleaning between the vines is carried out mechanically.
Environmental sustainability is one of the company’s core values, as they believe that it is our duty to leave a healthy ecosystem for future generations.
