Vistorta is a historical village in the region of Friuli, in the northeastern part of Italy. The estate hasbeen in the ownership of the Brandolini family since 1780. The current estate, which includes afarm and a winery, was created by Guido Brandolini with a long term vision to modernity. In 1985,Brandino Brandolini, inspired by Bordeaux standards, introduced a winemaking revolution toVistorta by implementing a project with the aim to produce a great age worthy red wine: MerlotVistorta. The range of production includes both red and white varietal wines, typical to the Friuliantradition with the claddic Conte Brandolini label. In 2005, the Vistorta project converted to organicfarming. The whole farm, which counts some 200 hectares, was totally converted to organicfarming and certified as such starting from vintage 2009. On the farm soils, Vistorta grows a varietyof crops (corn, wheat, soybeans, spelt and alfalfa) as well as vegetable garden. The soilcomposition of the 37 hectares of vineyard is mainly lanted to clay-limestone and sand-gravel,excellent for producing fresh white wines such as Friulano and Pinot Grigio, and in the redsRefosco and Cabernet Franc. The old vines of Merlot are dedicated to the production of VistortaMerlot that we have been ageing carefully in the cellar for more than 20 years, collecting wonderfulvintages, which are available for customers starting from 1996 vintage, up to the current one.
