Overview

Mario Schiopetto has devoted his life to making the best wine Friuli has to offer. He has become a point of reference for the entire Collio zone as he essentially found new ways to vinify indigenous as well as international grape varietals. His products enjoy a cult wine status world wide. A prestigious variety of vine ideally suited to the hillside, improperly referred to as Borgogna Bianco. Imported from France in ancient times, it has adapted excellently to Friuli, particularly the Collio area. Azienda Agricola Mario Schiopetto s.s. grows Pinot Bianco grapes in an ideal spot on the open hillside where the soil is predominantly marly.
