D.O.C. Friuli Colli Orientali
IL RONCAL FARM AND HOLIDAY ESTATE: HEART, LAND AND QUALITY

There is a place in the eastern hills of Friuli (Colli Orientali del Friuli) which is a real heartland. Here the family values find their most sincere expression in producing great wines.
Il Roncal is a small estate of 20 hectares set on terraces on Colle Montebello (Montebello Hill), in the heart of the Colli Orientali in Friuli, only 3 km away from the historical center of one of the most important lombard cities, Cividale del Friuli (UNESCO site). Here Martina Moreale carries on the project of her husband Roberto, founder of the winery. Day after day, the diligent care of this land offers its best fruits that are harvested only to create high-quality wines. Simply just for excellence lovers.

The impressing landscape of the Colli Orientali del Friuli with the numerous beautiful vineyards has a more or less homogenous soil composition and homogenous climatic conditions. Nevertheless, the wines of Colli Orientali del Friuli are very diverse and have their own characters. These individual characters come from the passion the wine growers have for their vineyards and their vines and the technological expertise which they have brought to perfection.
Il Roncal is in exactly this area of the Colli Orientali del Friuli. In Friuli, the name of our firm, Roncal, means terraced estate on a hill, and “ronchi” are, in fact, the hillsides commanding this striking landscape. The slopes of our vineyards, surrounding the hill of Montebello, favored by an excellent exposure and the sandstone/marl soil, are ideal for growing grapes. At Il Roncal, the grape harvest is delayed on purpose, in order to pick the grapes when they come to their full ripeness. The process is then carried out, within the factory cellars, with traditional methods under controlled temperature. Here, as well, tradition and modernity continue to cohabit; near the shiny cold steel basins stand the sweet-smelling oak casks, where the wines mature and the fragrance becomes full-blown.
