Wine started being produced to meet the needs of a personal catering business, but not long after that, in the early nineties, it evolved into a complete and exclusive dedication to wine.
The first bottle to be dressed up in Degrassi winery clothing was released with the 1996 vintage mark on it.
Committed from the very beginning to superior quality and the preservation of continuity, Degrassi cellar gives birth to wine that bring people together, inviting them to share special moments carried by their mutual interest and the ritual of existing.

This wine is born in the best wine growing area of the Buje region called Contarini-Brazzania where a low yield per hectare allows for the production of extraordinary wines. The vineyards are laid out in an amphitheatre fashion, helping them to ideally utilize the local climate and the mineral-rich white soil.
Alcohol fermentation begins at temperatures ranging from 25 to 28°C for a duration of 15 to 20 days. The malolactic fermentation and the maturation period take place over 18 months in small oak casks which help pair the rich and noble aromas of wood and grape. What follows next is the blending and the ageing of wine in a big wooden barrel over the span of a year, finishing with an additional 6 months spent in a bottle where the wine is further matured and balanced.
