Ponte del Diavolo

Ponte del Diavolo Logo

The wines are made on the well-drained soils of Grave del Friuli and are fuller than those from Verona.

The Ponte del Diavolo wines take their name from the spectacular medieval bridge in nearby Cividale.

The story goes that the devil struck a bargain with the townspeople, promising to make them a bridge in return for the soul of the first living thing to cross it.

The cunning citizens sent a dog or cat across, depending on the variation of the story, thereby saving themselves and gaining a wonderful bridge.
