Altaya Wines is proud to carry various ranges where each blend and varietal has complexity and finesse. For whites, the powerful yet harmonious Mario Schiopetto Bianco is a blend of two different grapes: Chardonnay and Tocai Fruilano, a classic grape native to Collio Goriziano. Schiopetto also produces wine with pure grape varietal from Collio DOC like the intense and aromatic Pinot Bianco, produced with 100% Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Grigio, produced with 100% Pinot Grigio that is well-structured, with zesty citric character.

The reds from Schiopetto are beautiful as well. The Rivarossa Rosso, under the classification of IGT Rosso Venezia Giulia, is elegantly structured which defines a historic assemblage of the vineyards grown with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes.
