In the middle of the DOC Friuli, between the Roman town of Aquileia and the starry shaped fortress of Palmanova, lies the Tenuta Beltrame. The winery, dating back to the 17th century, once belonged to the Counts Antonini, was bought by the Beltrame family in 1991. In 2016 Cristian Zapata, current football player in the Milan Team, bought part of the shares of the winery, giving new upsurge and development prospects to the Company. With an area of 40 hectares of land, 25 of which are devoted to grape growing, the Estate produces high quality wines, very typical of the Friuli area, in the cellars of the ancient Villa. The vine training, made to grow high quality grapes, the arrangement of the winery and the thirty-year experience of Cristian Beltrame in the enological field allow us to obtain great territorial, expressive, refined and long-lived wines.
The Company philosophy is focused on the total respect for Nature while growing the grapes and, in the cellar, we simply wait for the correct ageing of our wines patiently kept in our barrels. Our focus is to obtain fine and elegant wines so, in the cellar, we do the fewer possible operations just to respect what Nature offers us in every single vintage. Our greatest goal is to preserve all the characteristics of our grapes during their transformation into wine.
In 2018 our reception project will start and this will allow us to restore part of the old Villa creating a B&B with 6 rooms, equipped with all the comforts, in an atmosphere of great charm. These accommodations will be available to all the eno-courious people and to anyone who wants to enjoy a moment of peace and relax.
