Even if it has been forgotten a little bit, particularly in the German-speaking countries, due to the development of white wine qualities there: Friuli is still a paradise for white wine lovers.
Of course, you can find large quantities of simple everyday wines here, too, but at the top, completely independent, characterful and sometimes even extremely long-lived drops are produced. Their predominantly bone-dry style predestines them to be versatile food companions just as much as their in most cases not very fruity style, which clearly distinguishes them - largely independent of the respective variety - from most wines of Germany or Austria.
The most important of these varieties are, on the one hand, the internationally widespread Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon, but from indigenous varieties such as Friulano, Ribolla Gialla and Malvasia Istriana, absolutely equal and certainly no less exciting wines are pressed here. For the rarer dessert wines, producers usually use Picolit or Verduzzo Friuliano.
