Livio Felluga farm is in Brazzano di Cormòns, in the province of Gorizia. This is a D.O.C. (controlled denomination of origin) area in the western hills of Friuli.

The Fellugas have loved wine for centuries – they stared producing Refosco and Malvasia in their homeland – Istria Island – five generations ago. In the 1950s, Livio Felluga moved the production to Friuli and founded the Brazzano winery, in the province of Gorizia. He also purchased his first vineyards in Rosazzo, in the province of Udine.

The success of this company is also due to its in-depth knowledge of the area after decades of cultivation and research, without any artificial fertility boost or human modifications.

Today, this winery stretches for some 400 acres on the Collio and Eastern Hills of Friuli.
The very icon of this territory is the Abbey of Rosazzo, which has preserved the history and wine culture of Friuli for centuries.

The very name Rosazzo comes from roses, abundant in the ancient times – in fact, this place used to be called “Rosacius”, “Monasterium Rosacensis” and even “Monasterium Rosarum”.

Roses are still found inside the church, frescoed by Francesco Torbido in 1535, and in the very coat-of-arms hung in the Sala del Capitolio – in the 1440s, a rose actually carved between two keys and this is still used as the official logo of the Abbazia di Rosazzo Foundation.

Along the fence walls of the Abbey and in the roof garden, there is an interesting collection of roses including ancient and contemporary specimens, and the “Rosazzo” species: a wild rose found in a garden of Friulian emigrants to France; it was probably was planted there in 1925.
Other varieties include Damask Roses, Rosa bracteata and Rosa bracteata “Mermaid”.
