Winery Notes:
The Giorgio Zaglia Winery produces quality wines in the Friuli D.O.C., located in the southeast of the Udine province, in the Precenicco and Pocenia municipalities. The area lies between the Stella and Tagliamento rivers and near the Adriatic Sea, where clay soil, rich in mineral salt, and warm salty air currents create an extraordinary micro-climate ideal for wine growing.

The winery was founded in 1970 by Aldo Zaglia; today it is run by his son Giorgio who took over the in the 1980’s. After earning a degree in Agricultural Sciences, Giorgio implemented great changes in the vineyards and the cellar, combining tradition and new technology. Giorgio is guided by a respect for the environment and continual research of quality practices. In 1995, he began replanting the vineyards, increasing planting density per hectare, adopting short pruning and shrewd thinning, and using the most current and accurate methods of enhancing terroir.

Zaglia’s vineyards cover 30 hectares (75 acres) and produce around 13,000 cases per year.
