In accordance with our credo that a great wine is born on the vine, Perusini wine is produced only from the grapes of its own vineyard, all terraced on loam rock (known as Ponca in Friuli) in a splendid position, the vines closely planted in accordance with strict criteria. The in-depth research into native vines that has become a byword for our vineyard over three generations.
The Perusini vineyards are one of the 50 happy few listed by Luigi Veronelli in “I vignaioli storici” (The Italian Wine-growers Bible). Today the estate is run by Giampaolo’s daughter, Teresa, an art historian like her uncle, but also a keen cultivator who divides her time between her studies and running the estate together with her husband Giacomo de Pace and her three sons.
