Celebrate the gift of life with Celebrate Life Merlot.

Merlot is an intrinsic part of the history of this region and Fantinel's Celebrate Life Merlot is a classic example of the Friuli Grave DOC, an appellation widely considered a world-class expression of this noble grape variety.

Marco Fantinel, President of the Fantinel Group that includes the wineries of Fantinel and La Roncaia, was appointed as the goodwill ambassador for IIMSAM. IIMSAM (Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition) is accredited as a Permanent Observer Mission with the United Nations Economc Council to fight worldwide hunger. IIMSAM strives to counter malnutrition through the use of Spirulina: a micro-algae abundant in essential proteins, vitamins, nutrients and minerals equired by the human body.

About Fantinel:

This family estate was founded in 1969 by well known and admired hotelier and restaurateur Mario Fantinel. Driven to produce wines that would defy the expectations of his tasteful clientele, Mario purchased the initial vineyards in the Dolegna Collio area. In 1973 Mario's sons Luciano, Gianfranco and Loris embarked upon the next chapter of the Fantinel story by acquiring some of the finest vineyards in Collio, Grave, and Colli Orientali as well as opening a wine bar in San Daniele del Friuli. At the threshold of the third millennium, the third generation of the family: Lara, Manuela, Stefano, Marco, Marielena, and Paolo- embarked on further expansion. Over the years, the production of and the demand for Fantinel wines has grown steadily. Today they are enjoyed around the world while the Fantinel family continues in their ceaseless efforts to advance the cuisine and culture of Friuli.
