Azienda Agricola Mario Schiopetto is one of the oldest wine estates in the Collio area. The Schiopetto family has been in the wine business for three generations, and started when Giorgio Schiopetto (Carlo’s grandfather) passed on to his son (Mario) his love of good wines. This passion would eventually give him the title as founding father of modern wine making in Friuli. Before turning to wine making, Mario traveled to Germany and France to explore the quality wines made in their famed wine cellars. It was German technology, blended with French finesse that enabled him to realize his dream. Mario learned the art and refined methods of making excellent wines, but skill and know-how, even when applied with passion, are not always enough. These must be painstakingly adapted to a different environment and climate, more specifically a different region with a unique “terroir”, like the one in the Collio Goriziano area.
Self-taught and gifted with exceptional intuition, Mario Schiopetto launched into the wine business in 1965, and Schiopetto was one of the first wineries in Friuli to ferment in stainless steel vats, keeping wines fresh and crisp. Today, the estate is run by Mario’s three children: Maria Angela, Giorgio and Carlo, and owns more than 75 acres of vineyards surrounding the former residence of the Bishop of Gorizia, in Capriva del Friuli.
