Winery Comelli Andrea is located in Nimis a charming small town of less than 3,000 inhabitants in Friuli, in province of Udine, not far from the Austria and Slovenia borders, in the heart of Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC area (Oriental Hills of Friuli), halfway between the sea and the mountains, where the vineyards are situated on rolling hills at the foot of mountain called Bernadia, our vineyards cover about 6 hectares.
Old family traditions handed down from father to son, for 4 generations.
Today as in the past we dedicate ourselves with loving care and passion to the growing, harvesting and vinification of our grapes. Grapes are harvested only by hand. We are a small family farm and we produce our wines only with local grapes in our wineyears located in Nimis.
We produce several wines typical of the region: Refosco dal p.r. , Tite (our Refosco Selectione),Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Friulano, Picolit, Trinità (our Brut sparkling wine). But the flagship wine is Ramandolo wine. Ramandolo is a sweet white wine from the village of the same name which is situated in the hills near Nimist in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia wine region of northeast Italy. It is made from a local variety of the Verduzzo grape. Since 2001, Ramandolo has been produced as a DOCGG wine and it is produced here only.
In addition to the vineyards, we devote ourselves even to a lowly farm that includes some livestock and farm animals.
We work every day with enthusiasm and passion for our work, as in the past our ancestors.
We invite you to visit us in our winery, you are welcome!
