Fantinel Winery was born from the passion of Mario Fantinel, a well-known hotelier and restaurateur in Friuli Venezia Giulia (a region in the north-east of Italy). His love for wine was inherited by his children who expanded the families’ vineyard properties into the best areas of the Friuli region. What began as a small agricultural endeavour, is today a third-generation wine company represented by grandsons Marco and Stefano.
