Feudi di Romans’s History and Philosophy
The Isontino wine territory, which winds in the province of Gorizia, where the area of production of the grapes suitable for the production of wines is the controlled denomination of origin Friuli Isonzo and Isonzo del Friuli, has an ancient tradition. Already under the dominion of Rome and a few kilometers from Aquileia, the oenological tradition of these lands was consolidated, a testimony of 77 AD, a writing by Pliny the Elder, which mentions the noble Vinum Pucinum ” produced in the Gulf of the Adriatic Sea, not far from the source of the Timavo, on a stony hill, where it matures for a few amphorae in the sea breeze“(Fote: Naturalis Historia XIV, 60). The great strength of this area is the ability to pass down and fight strongly for its traditions. This legacy also distinguishes the DNA of the Lorenzon family, owners of the I Feudi di Romans winery, one of the most important wineries in Friuli.
A story that was born thanks to Severino Lorenzon, who together with his son Enzo decided to invest in this Friulian territory. A bet that since 1974, with the decision to settle permanently in this area, has been won by starting what is now the reality I Feudi di Romans, with the first vineyards planted in 1991 and with an exponential growth over time, which has led today to the company to have an export on more than 20 foreign countries and a regional and national resonance.
Currently running the company are Enzo Lorenzon with his sons Nicola and Davide, who are divided between the company management and that of the cellar, the beating heart of the production. With its 120 hectares of which more than half are planted with vines, which thanks to the proximity of the Isonzo river and characterized by the presence of pebbles, gravel and sand with a small presence of sandstone marl, the famous local ponka, guarantee the best conditions for the grapes, also protected by a perfect microclimate. Here the vines cultivated by Feudi di Romans reflect the variety of the ancient Friulian tradition: Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Nero, Malvasia, Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio.
