The name Ermacora has roots in the history of the ancient Romans. Ermacora was in fact the name of the first bishop of Aquileia, who lived around the middle of the III century and it was the Romans who constructed the historical bridge on the Natisone River, along the antiquated route that still today leads to Ipplis. It is in this village of Lombard origin that Dario and Luciano Ermacora operate their winery. The estate is located in the D.O.C. Colli Orientali of Friuli, a hilly region fortunately bestowed with the ideal soil and microclimate for the cultivation of the vines: culture, tradition, and quality of unique wines that do not know time.The friable marl and limestone soil is ideally suited for growing Friuli's popular native varietals. The land is interspersed with wooded areas populated with wildlife and a stream providing diverse ecology for the vineyards. The Ermacoras are absolutely fierce in their environmental program relying on an aggressive use of clover and dandelions to protect their vines The wine making is meticulous, showing great respect for the fruit and the tradition of these wines in the region. They are characterized by a definite minerality, floral notes, fully developed flavors, structure and balance. Whites are all fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, with substantial bottle time before release.
