Since the birth of the winery, Scarbolo’s philosophy has been very clear: contribute to a wine culture surpassing easy generalizations and fast trends that don’t belong to the world of farming. They have consciously invested in the Grave area of Friuli that for a long time has been considered only capable of ‘quantity’ wines, despite its amazing soil characteristics.
Valter Scarbolo inherited a passion for the vine from his father’s interest in viticulture. They planted their first vineyards in the 80s, in their hometown of Lauzacco. Lauzacco is located in Friuli on the right bank of the river Torre, just south of the Colli Orientali. The Scarbolo family puts immense effort into the vineyards in order to produce structured and elegant wines that represent the distinct characteristics of their native land. Their philosophy includes densely planting the vines and rigorously implementing sustainability practices to help preserve the ecosystem.
Scarbolo takes great pride in native Friulian varietals such as Friulano, Refosco and Ribolla Gialla. International varietals also thrive exceptionally well in this terroir, including Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. They are producing 96,000 bottles on 30 Ha of vines.
