Jermann is the story of a passion that came from far away. In 1881 Anton Jermann, the founder, left the Austrian wine-growing region of Burgerland and, later, the vines of Slovenia to put down roots in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Here he continued his winery business, and from the 1970s Silvio Jermann's combined genius and imagination took the company to undreamed-of success in wine circles, both in Italy and worldwide.
Today the Jermann estate extends over 150 hectares of which 130 hectares are vineyards and 20 hectares are given over to seed and horticultural crops. This is a company that interacts with the world every day, but its greatest attention is always reserved for the things that make a wine great.
Sandwiched next to the Slovenian border in the North East corner of Italy, Friuli has had a history of producing light aromatic white wines of immense drinkability but of little interest outside the region. Silvio Jermann has almost single handedly changed that. Silvio is widely considered to be a true 'artist' in the production of wines from his region, he is one of Friuli's top winemakers, producing small quantities of finely honed wines usually pre-sold on allocation. His style is to bring out floral aromas and piercing varietal character along with subtlety and elegance, resulting in very long wines with good ageing potential.
