This is your opportunity to visit one of Italy's lesser known regions, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, or simply Friuli, might be considered one of Italy’s best-kept secrets as far as wine tourists are concerned, but Italians have been coming to the area for centuries.

Wine lovers know that when visiting Napa Valley it’s about Cabernet Sauvignon. In Bourgogne, you go to enjoy the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. But when traveling to Friuli, it’s about a wide range of varietals. There are over 30 different grape varietals planted in the vineyards here and, because of that, some have even referred to Friuli as the “vineyard of the world.”
