The spectacular landscape of Friuli is particularly stunning in the fall.

In the north-eastern corner of Italy, where the peaks of the Alps and the waters of the Adriatic seem almost to touch, the countryside fare of Friuli-Venezia Giulia has been a traditional contrast to the more refined Venetian cuisine eaten along the coast. For neighboring Slovenia and Austria, Friuli has long played an important role as gateway to the Mediterranean, resulting in an eastern accent to many of the region’s dishes.

This influence also extends to Friuli’s wine production. Applying studied vineyard techniques and avant-garde enology to the production of distinctive reds and award-winning whites, Friuli’s innovative producers continue to set the highest standards in Italian wine making.

On November 17, join Nicola Marzovilla at Centovini for an evening devoted to the fine flavors of Friuli. Chef Patti Jackson has prepared a unique menu featuring some of the region’s specialties, naturally paired with wines by our favorite Friulan winemaker, Fabio Coser of Ronco dei Tassi.


Friuli's changeable weather makes for an ideal climate for vineyard cultivation.
