HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

THE FRENCH NOBLES AND THE COLLIO

A LONG HISTORY OF LOVE (AND VINEYARD)

The love of the French for the Collio Gorizia and for its wines has ancient roots, when it was one with the Goriska Brda. Perhaps it stems from the desire to unite two territories, as Lodovico Bertoli does in 1747, affirming in his “The vineyards and the wine of Burgundy in Friuli” that Pinot noir is none other than Refosco. In 1881, the consul of Portugal even wrote that sparkling Prosecco from the Trieste coast “a beaucoup d’analogie avec le vin de Champagne” (a lot of similarity with wines from the Champagne region)!

But it is with the French Revolution that the first exiles arrive, such as Albert-François de Moré, count de Pontgibaud, who in 1791 settled in Trieste with the pseudonym of Giuseppe Labrosse, then acquiring vast agricultural properties in the county of Gorizia, near Ronchi . 

So it will be Napoleon’s sister, Elisa Baciocchi, to own an estate in Villa Vicentina, where wine is still produced today, and in Canale (today Kanal in Slovenia) near Gorizia. 

The latter was purchased by Duke de Blacas d’Aulps (1771-1839), gentleman of Charles X’s chamber, who arrived in Gorizia in 1836 and was buried with him at the convent of Castagnavizza: the so-called «Saint-Denis de l ‘ exil », also today in Slovenia. 

His son, Louis of Blacas, will also own a winery for decades in Castel San Mauro, downstream of Oslavia, with the vineyards overlooking the Isonzo. But certainly the best known and most cited French winemaker transplanted to the Collio is Count Teodoro La Tour en Voivre, who in 1868 married the Gorizia Elvina Ritter de Zahony and built what we know as “Villa Russiz”. 

He will bring the French vines to Friuli and collect prizes, diplomas and medals for his wines. In 1888, at a fair, brings in tasting Riesling, Traminer, Franconia, Burgundy red, Bordeaux red and Cabernet SauvignonToday it is the young viscount Charles-Louis de Noüe who has fallen in love with the Goriska Brda to produce wines with Alis Marinic in Vedrijan, a place included among the best for his wine vocation already in 1787, not far from the Dobrovo castle, which he labeled in 1880 the bottles Château Dobra.
