Collio – Famous wine-growing area in Friuli
Four of the DOC areas that intersect this large area (Collio, Friuli Isonzo, Friuli Colli Orientali, Friuli Grave), along with their DOCG areas (Picolit, Ramandolo, Rosazzo), represent our winemaking heritage, in addition to the high-quality agricultural food we produce. A vast expanse of specialised hillside vineyards produces excellent quality wines such as Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco, Friulian wine, Sauvignon, Ribolla Gialla, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Collio (DOC blend of grapes).
However, other delicacies are also produced, which will delight your palate. Visit our hills, pop into our wineries, find out how the delicious Prosciutto di San Daniele del Friuli is made and discover the tasty dairy cheeses such as the renowned Fagagna, the curious Pestât (Slow Food Presidia), a dressing full of vegetable flavours and fine lard, in addition to a speciality with an acquired taste, the Rosa di Gorizia, chicory with a deep red colour which comes in various shades of red and pink, and has a slightly bitter and crisp flavour.
