Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso is an ancient native grape varietal that originally came from the area between Carso and Istria. Its presence in Friuli Venezia Giulia has been documented since 1467. The wine’s name comes from the vineyard’s position. “Ronco” in the Friulian dialect refers to a section on the hill and “Moreri” to the mulberries, which typically surround the vineyards.
Marco Felluga, in Gradisca d’Isonzo, has the Lion of Saint Mark as its symbol: a tribute to the glorious past of the ancient town founded by the Most Serene Republic of Venice. Its vineyards are located in four different areas of the Collio: Farra d’Isonzo, San Floriano del Collio, Oslavia and Cormòns. The quality of its red and white wines comes from these vineyards
