Villa Erbice dates back as far as 1870 when grandfather Narciso started producing wine. The name Villa Erbice derives from the prestigious location of the company’s head office which is located in a historically significant 17th century villa. The Erbice family started producing excellent quality wines there, always made using grapes from their own vineyards.

The company vineyards cover approximately 13 hectares which are located in the municipality of Mezzane at an altitude of between 250m and 450m above sea level.

Environmentally friendly cultivatio techniques are employed favoring the use of natural pesticides such as copper and sulphur. Furthermore, all steps in the production processes are carried out by hand. The winery is organized in a tradtiional way with the fermentation of grapes on their skins in temprature controlled stainless steel vats. The wines are then aged in 225-litre French oak barriques.

Villa Erbice wines embody the spirit of the area and Silvio and Alberto’s personalities. They are wines with a classic intense color and sophisticated bouquet. They are well structured, especially in terms of tannins, and are suitable for long ageing.
