At a crossroad between the road going from Gorizia to the summit of San Floriano del Collio and the one that goes down to the Preval lies the Muzic company, belonging to Ivan and Orieta and their children Elija and Fabijan.
The authenticity of their work and the prevalence of native vineyards and old plants offer the opportunity to enjoy “the garden of Gorizia”, the original Collio; you will be inebriated by the scents and flavours that the Muzic wines will give you, that recall the lush nature surrounding their wine cellar.
Four generations of hard work and passions which find expression in the quality of their products.
THE COMPANY TODAY
For thirty years now the guiding light of the company has been Ivan Muzic, son of Luigi and Jolanda. He is a “free spirit” born to live in the midst of its vineyards in any season and in any weather, driven by a great passion for nature and for his land.
At his side there are Orieta, his wife, and their two sons – Elija and Fabijan – which have been flanking their father with passion and professionalism both in the vineyards and in the cellar for years.
The company has never stopped growing and has reached twenty hectares of vineyards (eighteen enrolled in the Doc COLLIO, plus two hectares located in the neighbour Doc FRIULI ISONZO area). Recently, in fact, new lands and a historic building were acquired; they are present in the annals of the area because they belonged to the De Randich family in the past, linked over the centuries to wine production in San Floriano del Collio.
There are three great forces driving our company: growth, tradition and respect for the environment, where the first cannot be separated from the others! The core of our production are the native vineyards, also when we implant new vineyards we do it starting exclusively from those same plants we have been growing for years, without inserting external clones. This choice led us to have vineyards that have been growing on our land for almost a century, among which our Malvasia stands out; it is an institution of the territory since the plants have been the same for over 80 years. The alchemy that linked the land and the vineyards is a priceless value, and this makes our wines, if possible, even more typical and extraordinary!
The love for nature, its fruits, and the environment around us have allowed us to obtain the MAGIS certification, which guarantees the full environmental sustainability of our wines.
The sense of proportion comes from the teachings of our ancestors, which are essential for that purpose and can be summed up in this maxim: “Do only what is needed, only when and where is needed.”
The name and the life of our company are historically linked to the Collio, the area par excellence for white wines in Italy. The heart of our production grows and matures within the DOC Collio territories, of which San Floriano is definitely one of the most prosperous areas. The excellence in the excellence. The Muzic company has been a member of the Consortium for the protection of Collio wines for decades, the third oldest in Italy and among the first and foremost in Europe, participating in the initiatives it proposed and carried out. The demonstration of the double bond between our company and the Consortium was the adoption of the “Collio bottle”, for exclusive use with DOC Collio certified wines, made immediately recognizable by its shape, and designed to enhance the products of our territory during maturation in the bottle.
