1964 – Douglas Attems founds the Wine Consortium of Collio

Count Douglas Attems was following a remarkably ancient tradition when, in 1964, he founded the Consorzio dei Vini del Collio, which he guided as President until 1999. The winemaking principles that were the inspiration for that association still protect that growing area today, with limited yields ensuring the very highest quality of wine.
