PighinOur history dates back to 1963 when the brothers Luigi, Ercole and Fernando purchased a 200-hectare estate belonging to a noble Friulian family in Risano, in the Friuli Grave D.O.C. zone. After a radical reorganisation of the plots, giving rise to vast plantings of vineyards and orchards, the new winemaking centre housing offices and modern cellars, designed by the world renowned architect Gino Valle, was built in 1967.

The Spessa di Capriva estate in the Collio D.O.C. zone was purchased in 1968. It consists of 30 hectares of vineyards and a vinification cellar that was renovated and properly equipped. With this purchase, the winery obtained a range of production in the two most renowned and suitable zones for viticulture in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, as well as in Italy.

In 2004, Fernando Pighin, his wife Danila and his children Roberto and Raffaela acquired full control over the wineries, and today they continue to run the family estates with passion and enthusiasm.

The winery produces wine exclusively from grapes grown in its own vineyards, so that full control can be kept over the quality of the wines produced, from vine to bottle. The Risano and Spessa vinification cellars are equipped with the most modern and advanced technology currently available.

Amongst the thriving vineyards of the Risano estate in the Grave zone is a splendid Veneto villa, surrounded by a luxurious age-old park, which features guest quarters for public relations. The seventeenth-century villa also houses the fascinating historical red wine ageing cellar.

Steve

"I totally concur with the other reviewer. This is a very simple, one dimensional wine; no noticeable, fruit, short finish. Given the quality and price point, this is not a good value."

Bob

Average Pinot Grigio

"While this wine was pleasant enough to drink, it was pretty plain and uninspiring. Flavors were reticent especially on the mid palate where they faded instantly. There are much better choices for Pinot Grigio at or around this price point."
