"Our mission is the continuation of toughness that led, our parents, to keep the vines ... try ... and re-try to improve!

We intend to keep the wine-growing it that way. Torreano, has alluvial soils with Piasentina stone underground, a land extraordinarily devoted to wine-growing, to produce great wines. The work in the vineyard is a heavy work, but compensated by the quality of the grapes that you can get. 50/60 quintals of grapes per hectare, some vintages also much less, and a number of vine-stocks of about 3700/5000 related to the variety. This is the realm of autochthonous vines: Friulano, Tazzelenghe, Refosco dal Peduncolo rosso, Schioppettino, Verduzzo and ' his Majesty ' the Picolit. At "Jacuss" are handled with the greatest care international varieties too: Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot.
We invite you all to join us and visit the small gallery of corkscrews of more than 100 different openers, a trace of history on this tool, born in England a couple of centuries ago. The attic of our house, used as a loft, where the small bunches of Picolìt dry, giving rise to 400-500 bottles/year of this special wine of the highest quality. In conclusion: around 50,000 bottles/year, for 11 different labels produced with absolute passion. Winemaking, even if supported with all the newest technological improvements, remains strictly traditional.
