Independent, Stubborn Wines, Like The Region of Friuli
La Cricca began with a chance encounter between wine loving friends and the winemaker Giacomo Orlando. Giacomo, a well-regarded winemaker in the region was looking for something new, something that would showcase the beautiful diversity of the region; lucky for him he found likeminded thinkers in the three friends, and thus La Cricca was born.
La Cricca wines are produced in Craoretto, a small village near Prepotto in Friuli. This is a border land between the Colli Orientali, the Collio, Italy, and Slovenia. Tucked between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, this is a magical place where the La Cricca dream began and where it continues to grow.
