The historical evolution
The Estate was founded in the mid-50’s when the winemaking process was very different from the one implemented today, however back then, the territory offered already particular grapes with a high-quality level
In 1970, the Friuli Colli Orientali DOC was established, identifying the area, the production and its specifications. Thus, SIRCH found itself then totally inserted in an area of great value appellation promoting the specific qualities of the territory.
The new millennium brought the renovation of the cellar as well the investment in new plots, with consequent increase of the yield and bottles produced.
Nowadays, the Estate includes 100 hectares among three different places of the Friuli Colli Orientali DOC:
- Cividale del Friuli;
- Premariacco / Orsaria;
- Prepotto / Cladrecis.
Today, SIRCH exports in several European countries and one of its brands is sold in the United States by Terlato Wines, a primary reality of worldwide distribution that has chosen this Friuli Estate for its own label: Terlato Vineyards.
