Spolert is a boutique winery in the heart of the Colli Orientali of Friuli, a winery born as the project of Riccardo Caliari, a young engineer who goes alongside his interest and passion for wine culture and terroir. He works this land paying homage to the cultural heritage and the environment.
Friuli Venezia Giulia is an area of noble wine making tradition and Riccardo is certain it will respond positively to the climate changes wich will affect the wine sector.
In 2017, following the purchase, he renovated the structure of the winery itself along with a portion of the existing vineyards and currently the focus is on the native vines such as Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, Schioppettino Merlot and Refosco.
Our goal is to create our wines with respect of environmental sustainability, a matter that we have always been involved in.
Our current proposal consist of two lines of wine: the “Millennial” one to denote the continuity between the ancient vines and the modern day traditions: this line stands out for its cleanliness and exaltation of the varietal.
The “Premium” wines have undergone different production and aging processes: tonneau for the “Peper” Schioppettino, maceration on the skins for the Friulano “Fausto”. The Merlot “Zirlo” and the Refosco “Ostinato” are aged in barrique and cocciopesto amphora.
Since July of 2021 we have combined the production activity with hospitality in the winery.
