The Primosic Family is intimately linked to the history of Collio's winemaking. Founder Silvestro (Silvan) Primosic was in the committee that supported and piloted the creation of the Collio protected appellation in 1967. Today his two children run the winery, maintaining the focus on the native and traditional varieties of the area, and striving for a style that favors clear, precise fruit aromas, intense flavors and overall balance. The Winery's vineyard management is based on a precise match of each variety with the various types of soil available, thus ensuring a perfect fusion of the varietal character with its Terroir.
The winery is located in Oslavia, in the “Collio Goriziano”, a few miles from the border with Slovenia. Eastern european and Austrian/German winemaking influences are clearly visible in Primosic’s style, especially in their Ribolla Gialla Riserva, produced in the traditional style with skin maceration. Just like in other parts of the “Tri-Veneto” (north-eastern Italy), the French and Austrian presence in the 1800’s has left an indelible mark and grapes like Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are considered an integral part of the regional winemaking traditions, and are grown along native grapes like Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, Malvasia Istriana and Refosco.
The Fourth generation of the Primosic Family is now running the winery, with Marko focused on Winemaking and Sales, and his brother Boris managing the operations and the administration.
