Producer Profile

Borgo Savaian di Bastiani Stefano

With roots stretching back three generations in Cormons, just 12 kilometers from the Slovenian border, this is truly a family endeavor. The younger generation felt inspired to carry on their parents' legacy after sharing a bottle of Friulano in the family vineyard at the tender age of 14 – a quintessentially Italian experience. Despite its modest size, the estate spans 18 hectares alongside Mount Quarin, maintaining a human scale and a deep commitment to farming indigenous varieties. Embracing a natural lifestyle in harmony with its surroundings, this family is dedicated to their craft. - Communal Grounds

Where The Wines Come From

Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, nestled in the northeastern corner of Italy, is renowned for its stunning landscapes and rich winemaking tradition. In recent years, the region has also become a hub for natural winemaking. With its diverse terroir, including mountains, hills, and coastal plains, Friuli-Venezia Giulia provides an ideal environment for sustainable viticulture. Natural winemakers here prioritize organic and biodynamic farming methods, cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Friulano, Ribolla Gialla, and Malvasia Istriana with minimal intervention. By eschewing chemical additives and relying on natural fermentation, they produce wines that express the unique character of the land. Friuli-Venezia Giulia's natural wines are known for their elegance, complexity, and vibrant acidity, with whites offering crisp citrus and mineral notes, and reds showcasing bright fruit flavors and silky textures. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to grow, Friuli-Venezia Giulia remains a leader in the natural wine movement, offering a taste of Italy's rich cultural heritage and winemaking traditions with each bottle.
