Wine Geek Recommended
Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Collio, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
The farming company FIEGL, active primarily in the field of wine products, is located in Oslavia, a village on the gentle slopes north of Gorizia. Its historical origin may be traced back to the sale contract of a vineyard called “Meja” in 1782 on the name of Fiegl Valentino. After more than two centuries the brothers Alessio, Giuseppe and Rinaldo are running the company consisting of 30 hectares of land, 25 of which dedicated to vineyards. Oslavia, in the Collio region, is one of the best sub zones for the production of white wines in Friuli, one of the most distinctive areas in Italy. A happy combination of geology, altitude and ventilation make it particularly fine place to grow grapes.
The area is known predominantly for its white wines which are considered some of the best examples of Italian wine in that style. Along with the Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige/SÃ¼dtirol, the Friuli-Venezia Giulia forms the Tre Venezie wine region which ranks with Tuscany and Piedmont as Italy's world class wine regions.
