The Tenuta Beltrame history

It was 1991 when the Beltrame family found the ideal place to establish its own company. It was an ancient seventeenth-century agricultural estate, located in the village of Privano, in Bagnaria Arsa (Udine). The property was scarred by time, but spaces, climate and land made this place a promising “land of wine”. Originally the estate was built in the seventeenth century as a noble residence for the aristocratic Antonini family. In recent years the Beltrame family has recovered the longtime abandoned estate, bringing it to its present splendour. The wine-growing vocation of the territory is rooted in a distant past, bringing us back to the times of the ancient Romans who began the cultivation of the vine here.

2017: Zapata & Beltrame

The Tenuta Beltrame has recently been enhanced by the entry of new shareholders. This new and cohesive group strongly believes in the goodness of plants and products and also in ambitious brand development plans. One of the new members is the football champion Cristian Zapata, currently defender of the Milan Club and formerly of Udinese Calcio, who decided to invest in the vineyard and in the winery, coming back to the places where his successful football career in Italy was begun.

Thanks also to the presence of Zapata, the Tenuta Beltrame activities will expand into a new hospitality project, which involves the construction of several apartments in the manor house building, as well as a wellness area, a conference room connected to the cellar, new offices and a large area for events and catering.
