Azienda Vitivinicola I VINI di EMILIO BULFONAt the heart of the winery philosophy is the rediscovery and selection of ancient native Friulan vines cultivated for centuries on the hills of West Friuli. Ancient vines that, up to thirty years ago, seemed to have disappeared, but that the passion of Emilio Bulfon, helped by Noemi and children Lorenzo and Alberta, has brought to new life, carefully identifying, selecting and replanting them in collaboration with the expert ampelographers from the Experimental Institute for Viticulture in Conegliano. At the heart of the work of Emilio Bulfon, discoverer of these native varieties is the will to persevere in the enhancement and protection of these vines, along with the basis of his wine-producing activity: constant care for vineyards, improvement and refinement of wines quality and reception of visitors at the cellar. In 1987, the Province of Pordenone, rewarding the work of recovery and improvement done, awarded him the gold medal and, after having started in one of his farms the experimental planting of 24 native Friulan vines, promoted, with the support of the Agricultural Initiatives Committee of the Pordenone Trade Fair and the Oenology Institute of Conegliano, the historical and scientific book “Dalle colline spilimberghesi nuove viti e nuovi vini”, by Emilio Bulfon, Ruggero Forti and Gianni Zuliani (1987, p. 83), where the ampelographic description sheets of the varieties recovered have been published for the first time: Ucelut, Piculit-Neri, Sciaglin and Forgiarin. A research that is continued later recovering other cultivars, once present in Pordenone area and now almost disappeared: such as the Cividin, Cordenossa and Cjanorie varieties, selected and cultivated for decades in the vineyards of the winery in Valeriano, thanks to the concession granted by the Agricultural Inspectorate of the Province of Pordenone and to the authorization given by the Region. All three vine varieties were entered in the “National Catalogue of Grape Varieties”.

Tenuta Fernanda CappelloFernanda Cappello, an architect, who was fascinated and charmed by a land that was so individual and tough, has taken up the challenge enthusiastically and now spends all her time on producing wine. Her passion, competence and professionalism is constantly growing, and these - together with the crucial contribution of highly-motivated experts and colleagues who are proud of their work - are the lifeblood of her energetic management of the estate, the cellar and also the newly-established wine bar. The Fernanda Cappello estate is situated on 135 hectares of flat land, of which 126 are given over to vines, 2 to woodland and the remaining area to crop rotation and to buildings (cellars, warehouses, workers' housing, etc). Seen from above, its natural and original position can be seen, in the "Magredi" between the Cellina and Meduna rivers: here, at the foot of the Friuli hills, at Sequals, protected from the calm and imposing Alps, on a flood plain, skeletal, made up of dolomitic limestone fragments, lie the vineyards of the Fernanda Cappello estate. A land that gives nobility and character to its produce thanks to two natural allies: the Alpine breeze from Val Tramontina, which caresses and ventilates the vineyards, creating a micro-climate which is dry enough to produce healthy grapes, even if it rains heavily throughout the year. And the stones, which are everywhere on the ground in the vineyards, are invaluable in creating the minerality of the land. A place where the Fernanda Cappello estate is already an integral part, a link which is carried on and enriched, harvest after harvest, from 1970.
