The Petrucco winery is the result of Lina and Paolo Petrucco's love for their land: we are in the heart of the D.O.C. area Colli Orientali of Friuli (Eastern Hills Of Friuli), in the town of Buttrio in Monte, Udine (Italy).
The Colli Orientali of Friuli are sunny and gentle slopes, ideal for viticulture, that has been practiced in this area since ancient times. The soil is of Eocene origin, basically made up of stratified clay and calcareous marls. This peculiar soil, locally called ponca, is particularly suitable for vine-growing, because it is very rich of mineral salts and microelements.
The estate spreads over a total area of 35 hectares with vineyards covering 25 hectares. Because of the focus on high quality the average annual production consists of about 100,000 bottles, as a result of an intentionally low yield.
