Paraschos - Friuli

Paraschos is a family-owned winery located in the Friuli region, close to the town of Gorizia on the Slovenian border. The Greek-born, Evangelos Paraschos, moved to Friuli back in the 80s. He discovered the wines of the Friuli legends, Gravner and Radikon, and felt inspired to start making wine himself back in the 1990s. Today, it is his son Alexis who runs the winery.

They work with a mix of triadional and international grapes such as Tocai Friulano, Ribolla Gialla, Pinot Grigio, Malvasia, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Since 2003, cultivation in the fields has been organic and all 7 hectares are cared for with great respect for the plants and nature.

The grapes go through a very careful selection at harvest and only perfect grapes are used for the final wine. The wines ferment with wild yeast in large, open vats and are aged for a long time on the yeast residues before bottling - unfiltered and unsulphurised.

Gravner and Radikon make fantastic wines, but there is no doubt with us - Paraschos are just as good and they make some of the very best wines you can find in the Friuli area! Expressive, complex and energetic as hell!
