“I have always been particularly fond of white wines that demonstrate freshness, minerality, and purity. Pinot Grigio is undoubtedly among my favorite varieties. One day, I asked a friend of mine what is the best Pinot Grigio in the world and he quickly responded that the best PinotGrigio came from Friuli Venezia Giulia. In deepening my knowledge of this little Italian region I was introduced to Marco Fantinel, owner of one of the leading wineries of this area. Pictures alone helped me fall in love with the Fantinel estate so I decided to go visit it personally. After walking though the vineyards and tasting with the Fantinel family, I felt extremely connected to the place, and more importantly, the people. The experience inspired me to create my own wines in partnership with Marco Fantinel.”

Mary J. Blige

The name is very personal for me, as it’s a name I was given
as a child by my mother.

The name SUN GODDESS evokes powerful childhood memories that I carry with me today. I’ve always loved the sun, and as a child I always tried to capture the sun’s warmth and energy. It was magical to me, and it’s with that spirit, that my sister began calling me “Sun Goddess”. “Sun Goddess” immediately struck me as the perfect name as it connects my real life, conveys the connection between nature, and the personality of wines I enjoy the most, combined with my style and that of Fantinel.

The vineyard

Fantinel Winery was born from the passion of Mario Fantinel, a well-known hotelier and restaurateur in Friuli Venezia Giulia (a region in the north-east of Italy), who purchased his first vineyards in 1969 to grow his own grapes and offer a higher standard of wine selections directly to his customers. The heart of the operation is located in Tauriano, part of the ancient village Spilimbergo, which is a cultural town famous around the world for its prestigious Mosaic School. A few miles away, within a stately winery, the Fantinel team manages over 300 hectares of vineyards divided into the renowned Friuli, Prosecco, Collio and Colli Orientali denominations. Each of these exceptional zones contains terroir which provides optimal microclimates for the maturation of the grapes and thus a true expression of each vine variety.

Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy 

Friuli Venezia Giulia recognized around the world as a source of excellent quality wines. Its particular climate enables the grapes to develop acidity together with fragrant aroma. The terroir in this area is extremely rich in minerals, enhancing the structure and complexity of the wines. Firstly, this territory’s particular climate, characterized by a strong temperature difference between night and day, enables the grapes to develop a significant acidity which, in the glass, reveals fragrant aromas with pleasantly vigorous citrus notes for the palate. The primary aromas show refined flower scents and intense fruits. Secondly, the terroir in this area is extremely rich in minerals, providing and strengthening  structure and making Friulian wines fullbodied, complex and long-lasting.
