In a sea of Pinot Grigio mediocrity, Livio Felluga rises to the top.

It is often confused with some mass-produced underwhelming wines but Pinot Grigio, or Pinot Gris, is capable of making high quality wines in the right hands. It is grown throughout the world but can vary greatly in terms of style. It is the most famous in Northern Italy, especially in Friuili where it yields Balance & Finesse wines that balance plus body with elevated, refreshing acidity, fruit, and mineral notes. Alternatively, it can also be quite fruit forward and rounder if allowed to go through Malo, and in Alsace, it can even be sweet in style.

Livio Felluga

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy

The Felluga family are fifth-generation winemakers. Livio Felluga founded his eponymously named winery in the 1950s in Friuli’s rolling hills, helping to carve out a name for quality white wines in the Collio. He passed away in 2016 at 102-years-old, and now his son Andrea and his siblings carry on their father’s legacy.

The Felluga estate is 400 acres with 38 planted to vines on sandy-marl mineral-rich soils. The top cuvée, Abbazia di Rossazzo, is named after a famous abbey in Rosazzo which had longstanding meaning to Livio, who was entrusted with the honor of caring for the Abbey’s vineyards and cellars. 

The wines of Livio Felluga are lush, crisp, well-balanced wines with bright fruit, minerality, and floral notes.
