The Tenute Grandi & Gabana estate has developed from the ancient roots of the
Friuli Venezia Giulia Doc viticulture territory. The name comes from the founder,
Marcello Gabana, one of the first to believe and invest with commitment and
dedication in the wine business, unfortunately he left us prematurely. Today his
noble history continues in the same direction with the renewed enthusiasm of his
daughters Giulia and Claudia and wife Daniela.
Situated in the heart of the Friuli-Latisana Doc area, the estate is surrounded by its
350 hectares, 100 of which are dedicated to the vineyards. The typical
soil found in
the area is a calcareous clay soil, ideal for the production of aromatic and structured
wines. The love of the land and passion for wine enabled Tenute Grandi & Gabana
to become one of the most interesting wine producers in the area, thanks also to the
family tradition and natural ability to produce and offer excellent wines.
The Friuli-Latisana Doc territory, a harmonious combination of tastes and
atmosphere, is located in the South West side of Udine on a territory with inimitable
features. The soil is calcareous and is characterized by compact clay layers with
fractions of peat, making the wine that derives from this region very distinctive and
typical of the area, unique in its kind both from a physical and biological point of
view. This also thanks to the fact that the soil has a natural supply of underground
mineral water and therefore the area is kept in absolute respect to the environment.
Another beneficial contribution is the temperate climate, mild winters and pleasant
warm summers. Given these distinctive attributions, our vines are in an ideal
position for the cultivation of indigenous single varietal vines, like Refosco dal
Peduncolo Rosso, the Friulano, Pinot Bianco and Grigio and Sauvignon, which all
give unique and unmistakable sensations to the palate, a genuine expression of its
Today Tenute Grandi & Gabana provides a balanced
combination of history
(which stems back to the beginning of the century) and modernity.
In the course of the years the Gabana family has gradually increased the number of
hectares on its estate to meet the demand of a rapidly expanding market, planting
new vineyards along with the older ones (30-35 years
old) from which our top wines
come from, the “Cru Selection”.
The new and future plan of the wine cellar includes the construction
an innovative and modern structure together with architecturally advanced
showrooms where visitors can taste the entire selection that the company
wine to grappa.
Our cellar is the symbol of a company that draws vital energy from its history but
also has innovative capacity to renew itself. Originally built at the beginning of the
60’s, today it is equipped with modern facilities suitable to protect the quality and
peculiarity of the wine. High-tech plants for production and bottling of the wine
have been designed to obtain high-quality products following traditional
techniques. The harvesting of the grapes, soft pressing, controlled fermentation and
refinement inside slightly-roasted French oak barrels are the natural stages of
a production process that has remained unchanged in time and is tied to the history
of the land.
Dedication, professionalism and care taken during the whole production cycle have
enabled us to play an elite and important role in the Italian and international wine
business. Numerous prizes and awards provide evidence of a success that is intended
to persist in time.
