Ettore Anselmi planted the family farm to vines in 1937 and began to sell his estate produced wines after the Second World War in the local markets of Udine, Trieste, Verona and Venice. Today, his grandsons Giuseppe and Luigi run the estate. Luigi graduated from the famed enology school of San Michele in Trentino and studied at estates in Piedmont and Tuscany. The Anselmi family owns 400 Ha of land, of which 90 are planted to vineyards. The remaining land is used to farm grains, apples and vegetables. The southern boundary of the farm is defined by the Stella River, which flows to the Adriatic and is part of a Natural Park. The farm is split into two parts: the largest part is in the Friuli sub-zone of Latisana, and the other is in the Collio DOC. Latisana is located southwest of Collio Orientale del Friuli and Collio is on the Slovenian boarder in the foothills. The farming is sustainable, with no use of pesticides or fungicides. Cover crops and mowing are used to maintain vineyard health. Soils are a fine mix of limestone and clay (marl). Dry farmed.
