Giovanni Foffani is the manager of the company together with his wife Elisabetta Missoni. After a professional career in the worlds of engineering and finance, he has been working full-time for over 20 years on the farm once owned by his mother, Maria Calligaris.
The farm began its activity towards the beginning of the 1500s, with wine production documented in 1789. Today 10 hectares of vineyards, almost all concentrated behind the large garden, produce high quality bottled wines, well valued by professional guides and sold in Italy, Europe and all over the world, with SQNPI certified starting from 2018.
Thanks to direct control of the entire production chain, integrated production methods are used starting from the vineyard, with profound respect for the environment and its balance, preserving local biodiversity. The company is also an Historic Home, an ancient corner of Friuli with its original almost intact atmospheres, which can still be enjoyed by the tourist coming for a visit.
Along with the classic wines Pinot Grigio Superiore and Sauvignon Superiore, Merlot, Friulano, Refosco, don’t forget to try the “unconventional” wines, such as Merlot Bianco and Pinot Grigio Ramato, perfect for the modern, demanding, curious wine consumer.
Artisanal wines, exclusively from our own vineyards, located in the heart of Friuli. Classification: DOC Friuli Aquileia.
Since 2018, all wines are SQNPI certified: it is our commitment to integrated production, with respect for biodiversity, carefully calibrated and regulated treatments, use of only authorized products, analysis of wines and soil.
Our vineyards give us an already excellent raw material that produces extremely balanced wines. The production area enjoys a particular microclimate, halfway between the descents of cool currents from the Friulian hills, and the sea breeze that goes into the hinterland: the resulting wines feature an elegant mineral contribution, and are rich in aromas and personality.
Casa Foffani is a Historic Residence protected by the Fine Arts.
The atmosphere in its ancient courtyards is as unique and particular as its Genius Loci, which unifies since the building of the house in the 16th century, land and wine with the arts of man (music, poetry, painting). A unique place where to find your centre and enjoy unique wines that are balanced, centered, harmonic.
