About us

Company details

We in Friuli are a people of few words. There are times when take it to excess and manage to say lots of things with just one letter. F as in Friuli, an area and a culture of which we are rightly proud. F as in Forchir, a wine producer boasting more than a century of history in a family tradition that spans four generations. F as in future, which for us means sustainable innovation respecting nature. I forgot, F as in Franco: that’s what my friends have always called me.
