Founded in 1499, Tenuta Villanova is nowadays the longest-living winery of Friuli Venezia Giulia. The property covers approximately 495 acres, from the high banks of Isonzo river, to the Collio hills.
Tenuta Villanova produces excellences in both sectors of wine and distillation.In 1932 the property was acquired by Arnaldo Bennati.
Today it is run by his wife Giuseppina Grossi, expertly combining the respect for the traditions with the enthusiasm for the oenological future.
The vineyards are alluvial pebbly soil with high drainage. Its geological origins come from deposits of the Quaternary era, then followed by ancient floods (Pleistocene) and more recent ones (Holocene) of the Isonzo river.
Harvesting of fruits is done manually with ageing in stainless steel with 4 months on the lees.Shelf life of wine is from 2 to 4 years from the harvest, depending on storage conditions.
