Fondazione Villa Russiz’s estate extends over 45 hectares of Collio DOC vineyards set between gently rolling hills and steep terraces.
The vines are planted in privileged positions, identified by founder Theodor de La Tour.
Today, the patient, scrupulous task of the enologist and wine-growers of Villa Russiz requires achievement of just the right balance to safeguard and underline the specific features that make each individual variety outstanding.
The grower’s wisdom is thus enhanced by governing the exposure of the land planted with grapevines, adapting cultivation techniques in response to changing trends in the climate and microclimate, and imposing a rigorous cultivation method with a maximum of 4,500 to 6,000 plants: wisdom requiring hard work and dedication every day, making only Collio DOC wines and setting the standard for quality the world over.
This on-going search for excellence has become Villa Russiz’s mission, taking on the responsibility for faithfully expressing the land in the wine and obtaining a wine that pleases both connoisseurs and inexperienced consumers from the very first sip.
