Livio Felluga Wine Tasting – Le Sommelier Inc, Exclusive Wine Agents arrived with Matteo Burani, Export Manager and long-time employee for Livio Felluga to lead our members through an informal tasting of their delicious wines.
This family owned winery is one of the historic estates of Friuli, Italy, which was 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”.
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 average of 750,000 bottles which are then exported all over the world.
Livio, now 95 years old, and still helps his children (Maurizio, Elda, Andrea and Filippo) continue the family winemaking tradition.
Special thanks to Bernard of Le Sommelier!
