Livon

This is how our family history started…

A fifty year-long story, between 1964-2014, that has its roots in the family's passion and traditions: a true love for the homeland, Friuli or better, the Collio and the Colli Orientali del Friuli, the far north-eastern corner of Italy and gateway to Eastern Europe. My dad Dorino Livon acquired his first vineyards on the Collio hills in 1964, and slowly, plot by plot, expanded his property. In the early nineteen eighties, my brother and I start working in the family company. We both brought new ideas and strategies to the table setting our goal on high quality products. Indeed, since 1989 our commitment to quality has been well recognised and is represented by the Winged Woman created by Ertè. The decade following such brave decision of diversifying the production was spent consolidating our new strategy. The years between 1992 and 1997 saw yet another strategical change for the company. We realised that we needed to remain competitive in the rapidly-changing and ever evolving market, so we decided to buy two estates in areas particularly suitable to winegrowing though beyond the borders of Friuli: Borgo Salcetino which is located in the very heart of the Chianti Classico area, in Tuscany and Fattoria Colsanto, in Bevagna (PG) in the Montefalco DOCG area, in Umbria. In 2008, after a period dedicated to the renovation of the ancient Locanda Villa Chiopris, acquired in 2003, the rural countryside villa returned to its original splendour and has become the venue of wine tasting events as well as a very pleasant boutique Bed and Breakfast, which can boast the peace and best views of the surrounding vineyards.

Now, after fifty years, our children represent the legacy not only of our family, but also of the values and life philosophy that have helped us build and develop our trademark and have our wines internationally recognised. Such a rewarding outcome seamed possible only in our dreams when we were younger.

GRAPE HARVEST

The grapes are harvested by hand using boxes, steeped in a cold horizontal press for eight hours and the must is cleaned through settling.

VINIFICATION

30% of the fermentation takes place in Allier Barriques and 70% in steel at a controlled temperature of 10°C. When the fermentation is over, the product thus obtained is not poured off and therefore remains in the same containers to mature for about eight months at a constant temperature. At the end of this period, the wine is assembled and bottled. There follows a further long period of refining gin the bottle before the wine is distributed.
