It’s also available with Stelvin screw cap by the French company Pechiney: we decided for this very technical closure to preserve the fragrance and the organoleptic qualities obtained first in the vineyard and then in the cellar.

 

Tasting notes: It has a bright, pale straw shade and fruit aromas with a mineral undertone. On the palate it is dry, fresh and tangy with the unassuming elegance of an authentic country wine. Vinnae is delicious as an aperitif and it is also an excellent match for seafood starters and first course dishes with fish. Its freshness and irresistible drinkability make it an ideal summer white.

History: The name Vinnae was created for the 1983 vintage to celebrate the birth of Silvio Jermann’s second son and to commemorate the Jermann family’s 100 years of winemaking at Villanova. Five generations of the family have cultivated Ribolla in the Collio vineyards of the village, earning themselves the title of “vinnaioli” or “wine growers”; hence the choice of the name “Vinnae” of this Ribolla-based wine.

The label was restyled in 2004 with the addition of a symbol of the Jermann family’s Austrio-Hungarian origins, a double-headed eagle found on an old barrel belonging to Silvio Jermann’s great grandfather Anton. The phrase “servus cella” is a reference to the cellar, while mention of the varieties of the cuvée recalls the three-fold heritages of Slovenia, Friuli and Austria, which pervade the spirit of the Collio.
