Winery History: Villa Russiz was founded on 15 February 1868 with the marriage of Elvine Ritter von Zahony to Theodor de La Tour. Elvine’s dowry, Villa Russiz, turns out to be an area which is still particularly conducive to the cultivation of vines and for producing wines of an exceptional quality.
Today, the passion for wine-making is stronger than ever at Villa Russiz. 50 of the 100 hectares that make up the estate are cultivated as vineyards, rewarding this same passion with exceptional, elegant wines.
The Villa Russiz Foundation red and white wines, made with autochthonous and international varietals, are constantly highlighted and continue to win recognition from prestigious guides and magazines in Italy and abroad.
