THE WINERY 

Located in Farra d’Isonzo, an outpost of the Collio Goriziano, in Friuli Venezia Giulia, the BRESSAN winery is quite unique. In today's turbulent ocean of quick industrial fixes and shortcuts, BRESSAN Mastri Vinai is a philosophical lighthouse, and Fulvio Bressan is an unmissable character. 

He is passionate about life and winemaking and lives life on his terms. He is opinionated but at the same time has logical reasons for his viewpoints. 

Fulvio studied in France, Bordeaux, with the director of Margaux, his mentor.
