When I was a child, like all children, I dreamed of becoming someone, of having a good job, an occupation that I could love and that could make my parents proud of me. So I started taking my first steps in the world with the intention of finding a passion to pursue, all mine. One day, just when I was looking for her, my passion found me. I was still a kid when a person close to me said a phrase that changed the way I see the world. I had already understood that my future would be tied to my land, but those few words allowed me to understand that I had made the right decision. Just right for me. It was a phrase by Howard Thurman: "Don't ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself 'what makes me feel alive?' When you find the answer, put your plan into action. Because what the world needs are people capable of feeling alive." And to me, the earth makes me and has always made me feel alive. On these foundations, in 1950, Monviert was born, at the foot of the church of San Giuseppe, which we have owned since I remember, within which all the members of my family got married, including me. It all started from my parents' stone house, built brick-by-brick, a bit like our company with its plots.
The name Monviert originates from the church, which has watched over our 87 hectares for centuries. In Friulian, the language of our land, it means "open mountain" because the "mountain" that hosts it gives an "open" view.
Located between the Julian Alps, which protect them from the cold northern winds, and the Adriatic Sea, which brings to them the warmth of the Mediterranean breeze, the Colli Orientali del Friuli have an ideal micro-climate for the production of red and white wines, which allows a slow and gradual maturation of the grapes.
