THE BELTRAME FAMILY
Wine makers for generations
The Beltrame family has been producing wine for generations.
First the great-grandfather, then the grandfather and now Cristian, who represents the family in the company.
A longtime passion for the land and for the vineyard handed down, immutable and intact, until today and embodied in a special place, an ancient seventeenth-century farm, located in the village of Privano, in Bagnaria Arsa, which the Beltrame family has brought back to its original beauty.
...come our great Friulian wines.
THE BASIC LINE
The grapes are hand-harvested from the vineyard and then brought, in small crates, to the soft pressing. This process distinguishes our whole production and leads to our basic whites: fragrant, mineral, elegant and of great naturalness.
THE BASIC LINE
Every place is different from the other; here the microclimate allows the grapes to ripen longer taking on those particular flavours that give to the wine a so pleasant taste. From the Pinot Noir, fragrant and elegant, to the full-bodied and intense Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, our reds satisfy a wide range of palates and allow you to find always the right gastronomic combination.
