Giovanni Puiatti

Giovanni Puiatti’s father Vittorio developed what is now Italy’s dominant winemaking technique for white wines, frequently called the “Metodo Puiatti.” Only 100% stainless steel is used during both the fermentation and ageing of the wines. This method is currently so well-entrenched that it is easy to forget that it was once considered revolutionary and is responsible for the super-clean, bright flavours of Puiatti’s wines.

The winery is the first cellar in Friuli to be constructed using only steel, concrete and glass, reflecting his motto of ‘Save a Tree, Drink Puiatti’ – in other words, no oak is used in any of the wines. Puiatti is now part of an important wine group in Italy called Bertani Domaines.
