A fertile and fruitful land stretches along the Isonzo river, not far from the town of Gorizia. It is shielded in the north by the Julian Alps and warmed by the gentle breeze of the Adriatic Sea a few kilometers southwards.
Since the dawn of the Mediterranean civilization, this land was home to men and vine cultivation. It generated and still generates superb wines as a continuation of its cultural past.
In 1983 the World’s Vineyard, a symbol of human brotherhood, began to take root. It originated from the hearts of all Members of the Cantina Produttori Cormòns and it was then nurtured, day by day, by other generous men coming from all over the world.
Thanks to their cooperation, some hundreds of vineyards have been planted that come from countries where the vine lifts the spirit with its generous outcomes. As more vineyards are planted, the World’s Vineyard turns out to be one of the most beautiful varietal collections in the world.
Because of its natural connotation but especially its intrinsic message, this wine, the Wine of Peace, is definitely unique.
It is a symbol of human brotherhood, just as the vines coming from each and every continent join during the harvest, pressing and fermentation, giving rise to one single wine. In 1985 the first harvest took place.
With their hearts filled with joy, over 500 women, men, boys and girls picked the long-awaited clusters. The Wine of Peace was born.
Decorated by the great artists Baj, Music and Pomodoro, on 9th April 1986 the wine took off for the first time to bring its message of Peace to every civil and religious Head of State, with Alitalia as the official carrier. Thus began the story of the World’s Vineyard and the Wine of Peace, with their message of brotherhood and peace that is renewed every year.
