I miei vini,
a tutti coloro che
e crederanno in me
Azienda Agricola Marco Pinat
The Marco Pinat's farm, founded in December 2015, is a small reality located on the hills of
Savorgnano del Torre, in the Friuli Colli Orientali DOC area.
Since he was a child, Marco had the dream of owning and managing a vineyard, so as to pursuit his passion, he enrolled at the agricultural institute of Cividale del Friuli in the viticulture and enology course.
After the high school, he decided to proceed with the studies at the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Udine, in the viticulture-enology course. In 2011, he decided to re-establish an abandoned vineyard uprooting old plants and plant new ones, supporting a biodiversity project promoted by the University of Udine and the Consorzio Friuli Colli Orientali-Ramandolo. The initiative consisted of planting vines of Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso from mass selection of historic vineyards.
He later rents other historic vineyards planted with the autochthonous Tocai Friulano, Verduzzo Friulano and Picolit varieties. In 2016, he finally acquired his first vineyard on the same hill where he started his activity and, in January 2017, he purchased a second vineyard adjacent to the previous ones. At present, the vineyard surface is about one hectare and is cultivated according to the dictates of organic farming. To date, only the vineyard derived from mass selection is practicable on tractor, while the remaining vineyards can be managed only by hand.
In 2016, Marco also purchased some cashmere goats to clean up uncultivated land and the most impervious and hard-to-manage areas.
