The Wine
Sauvignon Blanc is an international grape planted in many areas of the world. The two leading schools (areas) are French. The Loire valley produces a style of wine which is highly aromatic, salty and mineral, while in Bordeaux, where this grape is often combined with Semillion, is characterized by a good structure and body. In both cases only the best examples will be elegant and refined.
The right bank of Isonzo river has gravelly and warm soils, which are crucial to gain greater structure. As for climate, it is characterized by wide changes of temperature due to winds coming from the Balkans and by Mediterranean influxes from the nearby sea. These aspects put together create in this area the right conditions for a “Friulian style of Sauvignon Blanc”.

Lis Neris is located in the center of the famous wine growing region of Friuli, in the village of San Lorenzo, between the Slovenian border to the North and the right bank of the Isonzo river to the South.
More than 60 hectares of vineyards are planted in the most beautiful part of a broad shelf of calcareous gravel, dragged down by the melt waters from the glaciers of the Eastern Alps. San Lorenzo, which is a cooler area, is where most of the white varieties are grown while Corona and Romans, are warmer zones to the West of the winery, and where the reds are mainly planted.

It is here that, since 1879, four generations of the Lis Neris family have worked passionately to help create and develop one of Friuli’s most representative wine estates. In 1981 turning point materialized at the winery, and a new approach to production occurred. White wines proved to be the best expression of “terroir” and thus became the focal of production at Lis Neris.

Today, Les Neris Estate prominent standards apply both to there vineyard and wine practice. There goal is to produce the highest quality of wines while creating the ideal growing conditions.
