Italy’s most north-easterly region, Friuli Venezia Giulia (known as Friuli) borders Austria and Slovenia and boasts a reputation for high quality single-variety white wines (look out for the key DOCs of Collio and Collio Orientali del Friuli) in addition to a smaller percentage of reds. Friuli is also a key region for the production of orange wines.

The region’s wines showcase a broad spectrum of both local and international grape varieties, including Friulano, Ribolla Gialla and Refosco, to name but a few. ‘Friulano’ plays an important role in Friuli, being somewhat of a regional speciality. This white grape variety produces dry, usually unoaked wines with characterful orange citrus, floral, orchard fruit and almond notes, together with refreshing acidity.
