The choice made by Roberto Scubla, who in the past studied biology, to quit his job at the bank to devote himself to the countryside, that he loved so much, was guided by a passion cultivated since he was a child, when he used to visit his uncle’s estate and was fascinated by viticulture in hilly areas.
The company was founded in 1991, when new plants were added to some existing vineyards, until it got, in 1993, a total of 10 hectares of vineyards, located on both sides of a sunny and rolling hill, in the southern area of the Colli Orientali del Friuli, a place particularly suited to the production of wines characterised by beautifully balanced and extraordinary aromas and flavours.
In the period from 1995 to 2000, the old rural building was completely renovated, including the manor house and the cellar.
Roberto Scubla has always had the support of major winegrowing experts, especially the oenologist Gianni Menotti who, helping him both in the vineyards and in the cellar, allowed him to start a production characterised by very high quality standards, with positive feedback from the market and from the international press.
