Wine from a wonderful territory
We are in San Quirino, Western Friuli’s town.
A small portion of Friuli, characterized by the extreme proximity to the Friulian Alps.Our microclimate is influenced by its elevated temperatures, because there no hills to create a barrier between the mountains and the plateau.
The drinking pleasure, the simplicity and the immediacy are ancient values that have been handed down by this product and they have an essential importance for us.
For over a century the Russolo family history has been intertwined with the world of enology. It all began in the late 800s when Giovanni Russolo became known as a leading wine producer in the Pordenone region. Following Giovanni’s footsteps, Rino Russolo began to play an important role in the history of Italian wine starting in the 1960s. The winery took its current form in 1974 when Iginio and his wife Sonia created their own business.
With the purchase of the San Quirino vineyards in 1990, the fourth generation of the Russolo family entered the business, and with the support of Antonella and Rino the winery now embraces new challenges. In early 2000, the Russolo winery left its original headquarters for the new San Quirino winery built in the center of the company’s primary cru, Ronco Calaj.
