Winery Friuli Aquileia DOC for sale with 24 ha of vineyards and well established brand
Winery Friuli Aquileia DOC for sale in a strategic location at the centre of the Friuli region. The property has a high quality wine production, well established brand and a wine cellar equipped with modern technology. The estate comprises 38.2 hectares of land, a farm house with about 700 m², a wine cellar and ageing area of about 600 m² as well as a storage room of about 280 m². 24.2 hectares of the appurtenant plot consist of productive vineyards, all in one piece and located in front of the buildings. Additional 11.3 hectares can be planted with new vineyards to augment production. The farm house out of natural stone dates back to the 17th century and was fully restored in conjunction with the attached wine- and barrique cellar. The restoration works focused on the preservation of the property's historical structure while simultaneously introducing modern technology. The farm house offers 700 m² on three floors with a spacious tasting hall with open fireplace, a professional kitchen, laboratory, offices, guest rooms and a private residence. The attached wing is used as wine cellar, production- and ageing area on about 600 m². This part of the winery reflects the same level of architectural detail and high quality restoration works as the farm house. The modern winemaking and production technology introduced, such as the INOX tanks with integrated cooling systems, create an intriguing and eye-catching contrast. The winery is fully equipped for a premium wine production but uses a mobile bottling plant to benefit from the latest technology. The air-conditioned storage room is located next to the wine cellar and is also accessible with a forklift from a covered loading area. The soil of the vineyards is argillaceous, rich in mineral salts and organic substances. The vineyards feature a drainage system, which extends over the entire agricultural area used. The local climatic conditions allow for an optimal maturation of the grapes and hence the creation of organoleptically high-grade wines without the need for substantial interventions in the cellar. The 24.2 hectares of vineyards in production are planted in double guyot with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Nero, Refosco, Ribolla Gialla, Sauvignon Blanc, Tocai Friulano, Verduzzo Friulano and Chardonnay grape varieties. The annual production amounts to about 170,000 bottles of excellent wines, which could be extended to about 250,000 bottles with new vineyards on the remaining 11.3 hectares.
