Ribolla Gialla Des Rosis
It all began in 1965 when Mario Schiopetto took over care of the vineyards surrounding the Archbishop’s Palace at Capriva. He completely reinvigorated the abandoned Friulano vines and eventually managed to purchase the property in 1989. Mario, fully aware that the real wealth and strength of his business lay in the soil and the health of his vines, transformed the unkempt terrain into carefully tended vineyards. He worked hard to create a unique plot that took full advantage of the “Ponca” terroir: the typical clay and limestone Friuli terrain. Over time, his children joined him in the business—Maria Angela, Carlo, and Giorgio—continuing his project in the vines and cellar with sensitivity and respect, love of tradition, and real passion. In April 2014, the Rotolo family took ownership of the property, with every intention of continuing carrying forward Schiopetto with Mario’s philosophy and dedication.
