Ca' Bolani

A magnificent garden of vines lined with 999 cypress tress celebrating the extraordinary biodiversity of Friuli

About the winery
999 cypress trees line the Ca’ Bolani estate encasing a flourishing biodiversity. The estate is located in the Friuli Region of Aquileia, where viticulture was first introduced during the Roman era. Here vines benefit from a wide range of temperatures such as warm summer sea breezes and the cool shade of the Alps. Meanwhile, the soil of Ca’ Bolani diversifies even further as its composition changes entirely from clay and gravel to sand when sloping towards the sea. The estate boasts many different varietals which all thrive in a garden like environment and are all characterised by strong aromas.

History & Geography
Ca’ Bolani owes its name to the ancient Venetian family of the Counts Bolani. Bishop Domenico Bolani (1514 – 1579) introduced the famous architect Andrea Palladio to the region. Aquileia was one of the Roman Empire most important capitals where wine production was introduced after its founding in 181 B.C. In the 1st century B.C., Pliny the Elder cited that the local wine ‘Pucinum’ was one of the most prestigious wines of the empire, particularly appreciated by Emperor Augustus’ wife, Livia. Viticultural practices were developed in the area throughout the following centuries. The Estate was acquired and given new life by the Zonin family in 1970.
