Vini Zorzon was started in the early 1900's by Luigi Zorzon. It's run today by his grandson, Giorgio Deganis and his wife, Petra (originally from Austria). The estate covers 8 hectares, in Collio and Isonzo, a hilly area hugging the Slovenian border near Gorizia, known for producing some of Italy’s most complex and award-winning whites.
