The Attems family winemaking lineage dates back nearly a millennium. In 1106, records show that the Bishop of Salzburg gave them the estate for the purpose of cultivating vineyards and making wine.
After 900 years of wine production, Attems aligned with the renowned Marchesi de' Frescobaldi, one of Italy's most revered wine families. Douglas Attems and the Frescobaldi family celebrate a legacy of friendship founded during their years as students at the University of Florence. Understanding that a wine's quality and personality reflect the land it comes from, they have pledged to further enhance the vines at Collio. Together they have committed to innovative vineyard development and to strategic participation in the global market.
The Attems vineyard's marl and sandstone soils known as "ponca" produce crisp and lively Pinot Grigios and Sauvignons. In northeast Italy, bordered by the Alps to the north and the Adriatic Sea to the south, lies the Attems estate in Collio. This estate soil, a sandy, clay marl, is firm to the touch and rich in minerals and microelements. This soil produces beautiful food wines with the structure and acidity to deftly pair with a wide variety of foods.
