The cellar, as the vineyard, was built in the sixties. Lisio Plozner, innovator by nature, designed a cellar very advanced for the times: nowadays this cellar is still a model of efficiency. It has been organized at three levels. Downstairs are located the sparkling tanks, in the middle floor there are the steel fermenters at a controlled temperature, the oak barrels (up to 60 hl) for the aging of red wines and the tanks in vitrified cement for stabilization of young wines. For the vinification of red wines is used “Ganimede “ system. Upstairs are located: the warehouse, the bottling area, the wine shop and the large tasting room with a central fireplace
Tenuta Plozner is located in Barbeano of Spilimbergo , in the heart of GRAVE. This d.o.c area is in the northern Friuli flat land between Pordenone and Udine and it is particularly suited for the cultivation of the vine. These soils, called also MAGREDI or lean lands, are made up of gravelly alluvial detritus, deposited over thousand of years by the rivers Meduna, Cellina and Tagliamento after the melting of Alpine glaciers. The flat land (here we are at 140mt above sea level) has 70% rocks and gravel, which become gradually thinner way down towards the sea. The vine is genetically used to live in less fertile soils and it founds in this soil the proper intake of nutrients : the crops are limited but of high quality. The gravelly soil drains the abundant spring rains. The climate is mild thanks to the protection by the Carnic Alps from the cold winds of the North and thanks to the influence of the warm currents from the near Adriatic sea. The Grave of Friuli are the suitable terroir for the production of white wines, to be appreciated for the elegant bouquet, the fresh taste and the mineral note. These wines are particularly long- lived.
