We invite you in Friuli Venezia Giulia to discover the Cantina Produttori Cormòns, born at the end of the 60s thanks to the far-sightedness of some local wine growers and their love of centuries-old traditions. The passionate presidents Ezio Dalla Pozza, Aldo Moretti, Adriano Drius and Stefano Gregorat have always asserted that the future of wine production is not bound to transient trends but to the firm enhancement of their own land. Thus they established the Cantina, which is unique across the world for its first-grade wines and its many initiatives.
We based our production project on the care of Vineyards, writing a Countryside notebook, a detailed Code of conduct that every member has to comply with. Here all the details are written down. Each member reports the start and the end date of the grapevine phenological stages, in order to achieve a homogenous and high qualitative standard of the grapes. A steady supervision of the 400 hectares of vineyards ensures protection from parasites and 8 equipped weather stations scatter over microclimatic spots record any change in weather. The collected information is immediately dispatched to the Cantina computer station: a technology which fully respects the old customs.
On several occasions from the early Eighties, about 20 among the major artists of the second half of the twentieth century (such as Zancanaro, Celiberti, Ciussi, Ceschia, Spessot, Benedetti, Crico, Fornarelli, Ornella and Menon, just to mention a few) were invited to paint the Slavonian oak barrels, thus creating a unique art gallery with vivid imagination and, different painting styles and techniques.
Cormòns joined together artists of vineyards, of grape harvest as well as of figurative art.
Our BOTTAIA is absolutely unique and is the clear proof that winemaking is an art.
Visiting the BOTTAIA is a feast for the eyes as well as for other senses.
