From a young age Giuseppe Ceschin had a great passion for wine, studying enology and traveling around Italy gaining experience working for wineries in various regions. Alongside his wife, Carla, he followed his dream to Friuli, purchasing 35 ha in Prepotto, near the Slovenian border. They chose the Friulian word for springtime for their estate signifying a new era in their lives. Giuseppe and Carlas son Giulio and his wife Federica later expanded La Viarte to 41 ha. After decades managing La Viarte, Giulio sold the estate to Alberto Piovan, bringing in outside management to ensure the future of the property. Alberto has continued the focus on local varietals, such as Friulano, and has embraced the passion of the Ceschin family.
Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
