The history of Tenuta di Angoris begins in 1648 in the village of Cormons, when the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire Ferdinand III (the Hapsburg Family were the governors of this land at the time) thanked Locatello Locatelli for its service during the Thirty Years’ War donating him 300 fields in the area known as “Langoris”.
It has been almost four centuries since then, and Tenuta di Angoris takes care, with the same dedication as always, of both its 600 hectares of forests and vineyards and Villa Locatelli, the historical mansion, heart of the company and custodian of the tradition.
Fate wanted Tenuta di Angoris to go back to a “Locatelli” Family in 1968, homonymous of the first owner: 320 years after Locatello, Giulio Locatelli acquired the property, definitively weaving together the history of Angoris with the Locatelli name.
Marta Locatelli received the baton from his father Luciano and renovated over the recent years the wine production and the image of Tenuta di Angoris. Winemaker Alessandro Bologna, assisted by a dynamic and passionate team, constantly looks after and valorizes the 75 hectares of vineyards in the estate, covering Friuli Region’s best suited areas: DOC Friuli Isonzo, DOC Friuli Colli Orientali, DOC Collio.

A long time ago, Tenuta di Angoris embraced the respect of the environment and its resources, in one word: SUSTAINABILITY.
Since 1997, our goal is to improve our energy efficiency and contribute to environmental protection. Through a reforestation process, we added 40 hectares of woods to our estate. Most of the company’s investments have been dedicated to upgrade our equipment with tools for a sustainable management in the vineyards and in the cellar. New machinery for mechanical weeding to avoid use of chemicals, the construction of a well with a water treatment system, the installation of a 1800 m2 solar power system, cutting-edge filtration system, are just some of the measures we adopted to commit to environmental sustainability.
In 2017, we received SQNPI Certification (Integrated Production National Quality System): an agricultural production method following ecological principles, reducing the use of substances and fertilizers to the lowest possible.
