The name Mongris comes from the contraction of the two words “monovitigno” (“single-varietal” in Italian) and “gris” (“grey” in the Friulian dialect, referring to Pinot Grigio).

 

Today Pinot Grigio is one of the most popular white grape varieties grown in the Collio DOC. Its presence in Friuli Venezia Giulia dates back to the second half of the XIX Century.

Type of Soil

The Collio’s hilly terrain. This soil type, called Flysch in Italian and Ponca in the Friulian dialect, is characterized by the stratification of marl and sandstone. It formed during the Eocene period and was once part of the ocean floor. The resulting soil is rich in minerals and, supported by an important temperature range, it lends sapidity and minerality to the wines and is ideal for white grape varietals.
