Troy, Mich. – Kindred Vines Import Company announces the addition of Tenuta di Angoris to their already impressive book of Italian imports. Tenuta di Angoris is located in northeastern Italy, in the famous wine growing region of Friuli, where despite representing only two percent of Italy’s wine making production, the region trails only Tuscany and Piedmont for the highest number of rated wines. The wines are being currently introduced to distribution partners in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Missouri

Villa Angoris was founded in 1648, when Locatello Locatelli received a gift from Austrian Emperor Ferdinand III for his achievements during the Thirty-Year War.  Today, the 620 hectare estate (1530 acres) is run by Marta Locatelli and it is the only winery in Friuli to own land in all three DOC’s: Isonzo, Collio, and Colli Orientali del Friuli.  Their wines are all estate grown, and sold under two labels: Villa Locatelli, which all come from the Isonzo DOC, and Angoris, which come from Collio and Colli Orientali del Friuli.

The winery grows both popular varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but also unique, indigenous varietals like Friulano, Schiapettino, and Pignolo. Each wine is crafted with incredible care to bring out the best expression of the varietal as well as the unique flavors that exist within the land of Friuli itself.  Dan Glisky, CEO and Managing Partner of Kindred Vines Import Company, stated that “We are very proud to represent these high quality wines to the US market.  They are very appealing, meticulously cared for, and a unique expression of Italian wine making from an historic region”

Alan Gaddis, export manager for Tenuta di Angoris commented, “When we were looking for an import partner in the US, we knew that Kindred Vines Import Co had the reputation, passion and drive to represent our historic estate and to represent our wines in the best possible way to the American market.
