A small Italian winery making the biggest waves
- Nicola, just like us, knows that small wineries are the jewl in the crown of the wine world. Having worked as an independent winemaker since 1992, Nicola can attest to the fact that the mixture of precision, creativity, and hard work that these guys invest in their trade, pays off in extra delicious wines that can't be paralleled.
- The aim of the game is to make wines that ring true to their landscape and region, with Angel funding Nicola hopes to expand the reach of the quality and experience only small wineries can provide.
- Precision is everything for Nicola, and he has his processes down to a science. Every sip has pure Italian style and charisma as a result - white wines with clean, crisp definition and reds that are smoother than smooth, with a sweetness that can't be resisted.
Map of the Vineyard
Graduated in agricultural sciences in 1990 in my hometown Udine. After I followed several courses in winemaking in France and Italy. While I was studying at university, I started to collaborate with a society that had bottling services and winemaking facilities for small cellars in my region (friuli) and in Italy too. I was employed as lab technician at the beginning then I move to winemaking consultancy for the society clients.
I've been involved in winemaking officially from 1992, first for other cellars and then, with my wife, in 2004 I started to make wine for our cellar Borgo delle oche. Nnw Iam the winmaker for my cellar and I still continue to collaborate with others in Italy.
