La Cricca is the story of an encounter, between The Winefathers and winemaker Giacomo Orlando. An encounter that happened by chance, or perhaps marked by fate. The Winefathers - Luca, Luca and Alessandro - excited about their project in the wine world are looking for a new idea. Talking every day with the winemakers, spending time in the vineyards and wineries, gives birth to a dream: why don’t we create our own wine? But immediately another question comes and brings them back down to earth: where to start?
As usual, life has much more imagination than us. Giacomo Orlando, young oenologist who works in a famous Friulian winery, feels the same need to create something new. Giacomo is a talented technician, capable of producing wines of excellence, but he wants to share his project with someone, to deal with the other challenge, namely how to communicate and convey the new wine.
And so The Winefathers and Giacomo - with the later addition of Michelangelo, oenologist in love with digital communication - come together and form a group - a cricca as they call it - to work together and bring to the table their idea of wine from Friuli.
