“Ronco delle Mele” or Hill of the Apples is the name of a hill, of a single vineyard and nowadays one of the most famous and rewarded white wines in Italy.
The small hill was bombed by the Austrians during the WWI and this caused a slight landslide of the slope. Daniele Venica who bought the property in 1930 decided to plant several apple trees among the existing vines, in order to support the soil. The Hill of the Apples was born!

Venica & Venica

Venica & Venica is a family-owned estate with 28 hectares of vines in the Dolegna district of Collio, near the Slovenian border. It was established in 1930 when Daniele Venica purchased Ronco del Cero.
Today the winery is one of Friuli’s most famous and respected estates and is well-known for making highly textural and aromatic whites that use little to no wood in the production of their wines.
Giampaolo now has taken over the estate from his father Gianni and uncle Giorgio. Venica & Venica’s vineyards are spread over 7 different hills from 300-400 meters above sea level — each with its own distinct micro-climate.
This great terroir provides unique characteristics to each of the vines and, when blended together, creates a wine of great complexity.
