The Adriatic Sea, is a body of water separating the Italian Peninsula from the Balkans. The Adriatic is the northernmost arm of the Mediterranean Sea, extending from the Strait of Otranto to the northwest and the Po Valley.
The sea affects many wine regions in Europe but is in the northernmost part where it’s most visible, winds coming from the south channels through the whole sea into Friuli, Slovenia and Istria.
For Paul Balke author of the Book North Adriatic, those regions are now separate only politically but are connected by their climate and could be considered are a wide over different states wine region.
We centred our attention on Friuli Venezia Giulia as it represents well the climatic condition of the North Adriatic and the incredible diversity of grape varieties.
We have talked about the interesting story of how producers after the 2nd World had vineyards in both Italy and Slovenia and were the only ones allowed to cross the border on daily basis.
We talked about the historical importance of those regions both locally and internationally, we discussed why in Friuli we should not consider the plains are A and B sites, what grapes are grown in those regions.
