We are in one of the most beautiful wine-growing areas in Italy, if not the world. This is where the Jermann winery is located. We are in the heart of Collio, the north-eastern border with Slovenia. Here the area is characterised by a mild climate, thanks to the proximity of the Adriatic Sea, and by a unique soil, the ponca, a calcareous and clayey soil that gives the wines a high level of minerality. The history of the Jermann winery began in 1881, when Angelo, great-grandfather of the current owner Silvio, planted the first vineyards in Ruttars, a hamlet of Dolegna del Collio. In the following years the company expanded and began to produce quality wines, establishing itself as one of the most important realities of Collio. Today Jermann covers an area of about 200 hectares, of which 170 are vineyards and 20 are arable land. The vineyards are located in various areas of Collio, including Ruttars, Villanova, Lonzano and San Floriano. The vines cultivated are those typical of the area, such as Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling Renano, Friulano, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Still a family business, Jermann has made quality and sustainability its founding values. In fact, the winery is committed to a sustainable viticulture project, which involves the use of innovative techniques for vineyard management and the application of circular economy principles.
