Like so many producers in Italy's northern most regions, the Keber family's roots are not exactly (or entirely) Italian. This part of the wine world is a crossroads of sorts, where ethnic histories and languages spoken (Slovenian, Italian, German, etc.) vary considerably often between neighboring households. The Keber family migrated to Collio 350 years ago from Austria, and they've been making wine here ever since. In fact, if you ask Edi where his family is from, he'll simply say "here." The Collio region is difficult to pin down due to the sheer number of varietals permitted in the vineyards, so a regional style is difficult to express in a single varietal wine. Rather than fight this uphill battle, Edi discovered years ago that the best expressions of Collio were achieved by blending the myriad varietals. Since he's all about Collio, his vineyards are planted strictly to native grapes. His wines, which Wine Spectator has called "provocative" and "refined", are quite unique in style, with a beguiling complexity and character that isn't really comparable to that of any of the other 120 winemakers in Collio.

The Keber family makes one white wine that they believe defines the Collio region and best showcases their winemaking philosophy. Rather than producing single varietal whites, they combine Friulano, Malvasia and Ribolla Gialla which results in a full-bodied wine with rich aromatics and flavors along with wonderful acidity and a true expression of terrior. It remains one of our favorite Fruilian white wines.
