Livio Felluga moved to Friuli in the late 1930s, to settle on the gentle buttresses of the Rosazzo hills. His dream of producing hill wine was interrupted by the call to the front, as if that were not enough, the return to Italy was not easy for the veterans of the Second World War: the physical, political and ethnic boundaries had changed, distorted forever, as the same agricultural and social landscape of the hill. The peasant population was leaving, further impoverishing the land and abandoning crops, values and traditions linked to it.
It is easy to understand how the story of Livio Felluga and his wine intertwines with the history of that particular land that surrounds the far north east of the Adriatic, the point of contact between the Mediterranean and central Europe. History of borders changed several times, empires that have disappeared, past wars ... of people who have stopped here. It is the story of a man who went through two world wars, lived first in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and then in the young Kingdom of Italy, and lived on the rocky coast of the Istrian peninsula and in the Grado lagoon.
Livio Felluga had to undertake a new battle to revive the hill, convinced that only the rebirth of quality cultivation could bring life back to the Friulian countryside, with great courage he began to restore the ancient vineyards of Rosazzo and plant new ones, introducing ideas and methods innovative, hard work, undertaken with great stubbornness and passion that over the years will lead him to create one of the most beautiful and significant business realities of the beautiful country, fully acquiring the title of re-founder of the Friulian wine tradition and reference actor of the Renaissance Italian winemaking
