VENDRAME VIGNIS DEL DOGE, a family-run business, is located in the heart of Friuli Venezia Giulia (province of Udine), precisely in a small but well known village: Passariano. The Vendrame family has been devoted to farming since many generations. In 1997 Elia, with the help of his sons Gino and Simone, established Vendrame Vignis del Doge. The firm with 50 hectares, half of them as vineyards, is right in the center of the renowned Doc Friuli Grave region that flourishes in the middle of a rich valley enclosed by the Pre-Alps, in the north, and the Adriatic sea, in the south.
