Livio Felluga

Sustainable

This family-owned winery is one of the historic estates of Friuli, Italy, founded in the 1950s. The Felluga family has been making wine for five generations, with the mantra that “premium-quality wine is made first in the vineyard and then in the cellar”. Their vineyard management philosophy is one of sustainability - “low environmental impact integrated pest management” and most of the vineyards share a similar soil type of Marl and sandstone flysch of Eocene origin. The first year of production in the Friuli estate was in 1956, when Livio Felluga purchased a few hectares of vineyard at Rosazzo, now considered one of the finest wine zones in the region. Today, the Livio Felluga estate has 160 hillside hectares under vine, with an annual production averaging 750,000 bottles, exported all over the world. Livio, now 95 years old, still helps his children (Maurizio, Elda, Andrea and Filippo) continue the family winemaking tradition.
