In doing a little digging on the Pighin family, I did learn a lot and it was pretty eye opening. First and foremost, they are one of the pioneers of the Friuli region which is about as hot as it’s ever been right now.. and they’ve been making wine there since Ancient Rome!
Back in the 1960’s the Pighin brothers took over this estate from a noble family. The boys had a hunger for winegrowing and a thirst for constant improvement and the villagers in the area soon took notice.
With a plethora of success within their first decade in charge, the brothers had developed a large following and a little bit of money – which they used over the next twenty years for enhancements.
They figured if they could build the most state-of-the-art winery in the region and acquire a few special estate vineyards, they’d be much better off than relying on contracts for fruit like so many of their neighbors and they could control every stage of the process. Both of those gambles have paid off in a big, big way.
