Prestigious winery brings exciting Italian wine heritage to Michigan for the first time.
Troy, Mich. – Woodberry Wine announces the addition of Tenuta di Angoris to their already impressive book of Italian imports. Tenuta di Angoris is located in northeastern Italy, in the famous wine growing region of Friuli, where despite representing only two percent of Italy’s wine making production, the region trails only Tuscany and Piedmont for the highest number of rated wines.
Villa Angoris was founded in 1648, when Locatello Locatelli received a gift from Austrian Emperor Ferdinand III for his achievements during the Thirty-Year War. Today, the 620 hectare estate (1530 acres) is run by Marta Locatelli and it is the only winery in Friuli to own land in all three DOC’s: Isonzo, Collio, and Colli Orientali del Friuli. Their wines are all estate grown, and sold under two labels: Villa Locatelli, which all come from the Isonzo DOC, and Angoris, which come from Collio and Colli Orientali del Friuli.
The winery grows popular varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but also unique, indigenous varietals like Friulano, Schiapettino, and Pignolo. Each wine is crafted with incredible care to bring out the best expression of the varietal, as well as the unique flavors that exist within the land of Friuli itself. Dan Glisky, CEO and Managing Partner of Woodberry Wine, stated that “We are very proud to represent these high quality wines to the US market. They are very appealing, meticulously cared for, and a unique expression of Italian wine making from an historic region”
Kindred Vines Import Co is importing the wine into the Midwest. Alan Gaddi, export manager for Tenuta di Angoris commented, “We are looking forward to working with the high energy team from Woodberry Wine. They are event driven and aggressive marketers.”
