At the Dissegna winery, located between Friuli and Veneto, wine is approached with passion. This has been done for three generations, as Francesco, who is currently piloting the farm, continues in the footsteps of his father Giovanni and grandfather Antonio, making wines, the first of which were created as early as 1925. While following his father's work, Francesco learned to take into account nature's own rhythm, and how it was better for the winegrower to adapt his own work to it , rather than trying to change nature for one's own purposes. Therefore, in 1998, Francesco decided to switch to fully organic wine growing methods in his orchards. Like his father, Francesco sees the vines as a mother figure, and the wines they give birth to as children, each of which has its own personality and each of which expresses its origin in its own way. The hope is that Francesco's young daughter, Maddalena, will in time find it her own honor to continue the family estate, like previous generations. At least the rich habitat made possible by diverse nature and its insects have made Maddalena interested in the ecosystem and respect its protection.
The 15-hectare orchards of the Dissegna family are located on calcareous clay soils. The climate of the Adriatic Sea prevails in Tarho, which moderates the weather conditions in the area both in summer and winter. According to the principles of organic viticulture, no pesticides or pesticides are used in the orchards, and the vitality of the soil is maintained with the help of grass growing between the rows of vines. The nurseries' own vitality enables the vines to thrive even when disease or drought threatens the nurseries.
In the cellars, the wines are made with the help of the naturally present yeast strain. Wines are made not only from the region's traditional grape varieties, but also from internationally known grapes. The organically certified Prosecco sparkling wines found in Viinitie's selections are samples of what Glera is capable of as a variety.
Since 2010, the functions of the Dissegna farm have been made possible by 90% solar energy, which means that the environmental impact of wine production is minimal. The water used in the fermentation process is cleaned and reused in the nurseries. Dissegna combines traditional values and various innovations in its operations, which makes it possible to make wines in the future while also respecting the surrounding nature.
The farm's annual production is around 130,000 bottles.
