Thank God Its Friuli!
Friuli is a difficult land. It is located in the northeastern section of Italy directly on a major fault line. It is a beautiful land with mountains and high plains. It has cold winters and hot summers. I greatly admire the people of Friuli. A simple and hardworking people who accept the difficulties of life and, without complaining, they live in harmony with their environment turning it into a terrestial paradise. The discerning traveller will find Friuli to be an excellent destination, a land of wonder hidden in the mountains of northern Italy. The women are beautiful and as passionate as the land is demanding. It is no wonder that Raffaella is a daughter of Friuli.
Friulani are not widely recognized in the world even though their products are. The surgical utensils of Magnago, the grappa of Picolit, the Prosciutto of San Daniele and the wines of Collio, are all products we use and consume and are the highest quality in their respective markets. We know Friuli, its products are in our daily lives, its sons and daughters are among us, but few can identify what or where is Friuli. This derives from the Friulani themselves. They are not boisterous or loud, they have learned over the centuries of devastating earthquakes and wars the secret to a quality life. Family and friends, being the best at what they do taking the difficulties of life and turning them into opportunities.
One of the best-kept secrets of travel is Friuli. Usually only the most passionate wine lovers arrive in Friuli and discover a destination rich in beauty and tradition. Friuli is not the museums of Florence, or the powerful Rome, but it is a unique combination of great food, marvelous wines, warm people, and scenic beauty. The best way to experience Friuli is to take one of the wine trail tours, stay at each of the wineries for a couple of days and visit the local towns, osterie, and vineyards. It will change your perspective of life.
