The Jermann, who arrived in Friuli, in Villanova di Farra, in 1881 from Austria, were first sharecroppers, then owners of vineyards. In 1968, Silvio attended the "wine school" of Conegliano and returned with the young will of changing everything. No more heavy and strong wines, but fragrant, harmonic, built to modern logic, with modern machines and modern tastes, respecting tradition.
Because of his youthful ardor, he quarreled with his father and moved to Canada; when he came back, was able to give precedence to its innovative ideas: his wine and his family, including the Austro-Hungarian father, are now one of the most appreciated and valued producer of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Jermann is the important winery which has contributed to the excellent reputation of the Friuli Venezia region. The love for the land and for the great local vines is the main value of a wine production that has been writing a piece of Italian wine history
