In 2007 the two brothers Gianni and Giorgio, current owners of the company, dedicated this wine to their father Adelchi. Thanks to all that he had left them: from the cellar to the vineyards, to the precious teachings, not only of the profession of winemaker. It is a heart wine which therefore represents the link and the passing of the baton from one generation to another of the Venica family.
The Ribolla Gialla grape, with a white berry, is autochthonous from Friuli and is characterized by its bunches which, at the moment of maturity, acquire a particularly warm and intense color, almost gold, from which the attribute "yellow" in the name itself derives of the variety.
It is a rather ancient vine with origins that are not well defined but still dated in Friuli-Venezia Giulia at the times of the XIII-XIV century.
Some argue that it was present in the region since Roman times, others say that this variety came from the Ionian Islands, passing through Dalmatia, then part of the Republic of Venice. The Ribolla Gialla vineyards are located within the DOC Collio territory.

Grape variety: Ribolla Gialla is produced in a DOC Collio grape variety. It is a white berried grape belonging to the typical autochthonous vines of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region.
Harvest: The grapes were harvested and de-stemmed between 21 and 26 September 2019.
Vinification: After harvesting the grapes are macerated for about 14 hours at a temperature of 10/12 °C in special containers, protected from oxygen with innovative systems by recycling their fermentation carbon, in order to reduce the intake of antioxidants.
Aging: The must ferments and ages on the lees for 5 months both in large wooden barrels of 20/27 hl (for 60%) and in steel containers for 40%.
Bottling: The wine was assembled and bottled at the full moons between the end of March and June 2020.


"Since 1930 when grandfather Daniele buys the central body of the company, time has passed giving birth to the seed of a new generation ready to consolidate its roots. Crossing the threshold of time, new energies and new perspectives are grafted onto the legacy of the past, a new Venica & Venica era begins. Not only a metaphor but the emblem of a Concept that starts and develops around the identity, the origins of winemakers with the heart and becomes tangible testimony through the ancient door of "home" [Porta di Daniele], masterfully restored , and to which Ornella Venica is intimately linked by the profound meaning it carries within itself. Symbol, of a new path, borderline between two worlds, hinge between two realities that dialogue, opens tomorrow and closes or better, ajar the past behind us, letting its magical essence filter. Gianni and Giorgio two brothers who with care and passion have continued to give voice to the territory by cultivating with their own style vineyards that exude character and culture, in one word terroir. Wine culture and gesture of the producer, nature and innovation. Over time, professionalism, respect for the territory and history has become the living material that has shaped the architectural aspect of the Venica & Venica Company. Each room exudes a beauty dormant over time, the walls breathe from memory and every corner reveals stories and thoughts like the ancient pantry. The job of living and surviving is linked to the pantry, food nourishes and leads us to new days. Just like the door that today houses this treasure chest [Porta di Adelchi], precious, material, essential, which leads us to reflect on the precarious situation of the past. Having food to be identity on your territory. A door that does not close but invites you to discover a world from which the directives of your future branch out. Walking within these walls is like touching the feeling, feeling the breath, cutting the emotional fabric to be reborn in every instant memory and evocation. Venica wine. An interweaving of experience and present The winery seems to be an interweaving of experience and present, where modern design and wine innovation transmit a concept of propulsive tradition and previous future. Stones, wood, steel and corten seem to identify new interpretative codes. In synergy Gianni and Giorgio, they shed tradition in every small detail without ever underestimating the importance of evolution. Unprecedented solutions that identify with a new door [Porta di Gianni & Giorgio], a dynamic work of art, which in the simple operation of opening and closing stages a rhythmic dance of gears synchronized in the temporal flow of the eternal moment. Symbiosis cannot be otherwise, modernity modulated in reason and soul, only in this way can it work. Vision and evocation as a synthesis of a growing process. Besides, the future awaits the new generations [Porta del Futuro]. Light on new faces, ideas, projects, intuitions that walk to communicate wine in its truest identity. From the vineyard to man the terroir as a trait d’union.
