The first official document pertaining to the Rodaro family bears the date of March 23, 1846. That period had already seen the family involved in agriculture in what is today Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which was then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. 

Their descendants were small farmers, freed from the bonds of the sharecropper system, who worked their fields and vineyards. They were timber dealers as well, suppling lumber to the Republic of Venice. Over time, the Rodaros achieved the status of leading family in the area of Cividale del Friuli. 

Edo Rodaro’s ceaseless commitmento his vineyard and winemaking and the business acumen of his brother Luigi, along with the far-sighted investments done by Paolo, thrust the winery into its present position as one of Friuli’s most dynamic companies in terms of viticultural research among the historical wineries of the area. 

Thanks to a combination of intuition and perseverance, Paolo Rodaro embodiment of the sixth generation of winegrowers - has found his treasure in the vineyards of the Colli Orientali and as a winemaker has focused his efforts on his own personal interpretations to bring out the full potential of the wines from this growing area. Supported by his wife Lara, with her radiant personality, he continues to manage the winery, investing and experimenting with new techniques both in the vineyard and in winemaking. Paolo’s daughter, Giulia, is in the midst of her university studies.

The winery’s deeply experienced staff is also an integral part of the family and support Paolo’s creative efforts. Cellar-worker Ljubo has been working here for over 26 years, while Francesco, involved in the administration for 16 years now, with his daughter Claudia follows hospitality and brand promotion as well, and the young oenologist Sara works alongside Paolo in crafting the wines.  


Aunt Dina, born in 1931, saunters down the wine cellar as if the years were nothing and fondly remembers the time when Paolo, still a youngster, used to pick up the grapes together with his father Luigi and uncle Edo, proudly accompanying them on the cart with the freshly harvested grapes.
