Borgo del Falco

Borgo del Falco is a zero-carbon winery in Friuli, in the little village of Palazzolo dello Stella close to the Adriatic sea. Borgo in Italian means ‘little group of houses’, the winery building made up of several old, traditional borgos that used to be home to farmers and their families. The ‘falco’ relates to the falcons that fly over the vineyards still, mascots and guardians of tradition according to the locals.

The vineyards consist of 50 hectares in one plot around the borgo, planted out with the indigenous grapes of Friuli, Friulano, Ribolla Gialla, Refosco and Schioppettino, and of course the commercially essential Pinot Grigio, plus other international varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Merlot.

With investment in geothermal heating and solar panels, the borgo became self-sufficient for energy with zero emissions. There’s also minimal use of pesticides in the vineyards and sulphites in the wines, always with the aim of reducing commercial footprint and ensuring sustainability for future generations.
