CONSTANTINI SUPERIOR QUALITY WINES

The Goriška brda region district lies in the northern part of the Mediterranean growing area where influences from the Alps are still felt, if only slightly. According to the European Union wine regulations, the region is classified as zone C II.

The landscape of Goriška brda is diverse and picturesque; the terraced slopes with an average altitude of 150 m above sea level are suitable for high quality viticulture. Olive trees, elders and acacias are scattered throughout the landscape. The soft hills of Brda extend to the Italian side of the border where they are known as “Collio”.

The Adriatic coast is only twenty kilometres away, and its proximity accounts for smaller temperature fluctuations through the year and a rather mild microclimate. The nearness to the sea creates peculiar conditions due to the sunlight being reflected from the surface of the water, bringing about the effect of double exposure to the sun`s rays. The influx of air is twofold: from the south, warm air penetrates from the Adriatic Sea, whereas cold air masses from the north are partly hindered by the last hills of the Julian Alps. Breezes from the Alps keep the summer nights fresh, playing a favourable role in terms of acidity and aromatic elements of the grapes.

The soils of Goriška brda are composed of layers of marl, sandstone and clay from the Eocene. They were formed millions of years ago when the area was covered by sea.

Goriška Brda Through time

In this area with excellent geo-pedological and climatic conditions, making wine is an ancient tradition going back as far as Pre-Roman times.

In the Roman era, Brda was part of the Regio X "Venetia et Histria". The name at that time was ´Colles or Collibus´. Founded in 181 BC, Aquilea was the nearest town and one of the nine most important cities of Roman Empire. Brda was also part of the Patriarchate of Aquilea.

Christianity spread from Aquileia and reached the region in the 6th century. It is believed that the first chapel was built in Medana in 630.

Until the 19th century the border between the Republic of Venice and Austrian Lands ran across Goriška brda and later between unified Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The first attempts at growing French grape varieties date to the second half of the 19th century.
