Anna Muzzolini returned home in 1999, leaving her job as a research biologist in Ferrara to take over the growing operations at Grillo. The estate was started by her father Sergio in the 70s, who initially purchased just one hectare of land to make wine to enjoy with family and friends. In 1992, Grillo had their first commercial release and has since grown into a nine hectare farm with production at around 3500 cases. Situated in the town of Albana di Prepotto, not far from the Slovenian border, the winery also hosts a quaint bed and breakfast overlooking the hills of the Colli Orientali del Friuli. The focus is on native grapes such as friulano, refosco dal peduncolo, schioppettino and ribolla gialla. Anna’s expression of ribolla gialla is fresh and balanced, with floral aromas and flavors of apple and peach. It also boasts the grapes’ characteristic high acidity which will make it a perfect companion to spaghetti alla vongole or fried fish.
