Founded at the end of 1800 and handed down from woman to woman for more than 100 years, today, Azienda Agricola Marina Danieli is one of the most important estates in the Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC area. It has 100 hectares of agricultural land including vineyards, arable land, woods, vegetable garden and orchards. In 1980 Luigi Danieli entrusted the management of the family business to his youngest daughter, Marina, handing down the traditional arts of winemaking and agriculture to her. Now Marina Danieli and her sons, Letizia and Francesco, are the fifth generation to run the company.
Most of the vineyards are in the hilly area of Buttrio in Monte and enjoy perfect exposure. Of these vineyards, some 50/60 years old plots have been selected to carry out a new project that will take hold in 2015. This is the FRUS project - son and fruit in Friulian - which, at the instigation of Luca Gargano, together with his sons and Fabio Luglio, is only suited to sustainable and natural production. The varieties initially processed were tocai friulano, pinot grigio, refosco and tazzelenghe, through vinification aimed at the natural expression of the berry and the territory.
