The management was then sharecropping and then divided the harvest made of grapes, corn, and mulberry leaves for the silkworms.
The production of wine, red and white then, it was restricted to the inhabitants of the village and some customers of the nearby town of Udine.
In 1968 , his two sons and Gianpaolo Giansandro decide to bottle the first production of Tocai and Merlot. So they increase the vineyards and equipment , they begin to sell outside the region and with bitter D' UDINE , bitter still produced in Pharmacy Colutta , reach the tables of the finest restaurants nationwide. In 1985, George, son of Giansandro , joined the company and began an extensive marketing work in Italy.
