DOC area (also Friuli Colli Orientali) for red and white wines in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region; close to the border with Slovenia and Austria. The name means "eastern hills of Friuli". To the south is the Collio Goriziano DOC area in the province of Gorizia (Görz), with the river Judrio forming the border. Both geologically similar areas once belonged to the Austrian Habsburg Empire. However, while Udine became Italian as early as 1866, Gorizia only became part of Italy after the First World War in the early 1920s. The zone comprises the hilly area in the eastern part of the province of Udine with 14 municipalities grouped in a crescent around the city of Udine. These are Attimis, Buttrio, Faedis, Cividale, Corno di Rosazzo, Manzano, Nimis, Povoletto, Prepotto, Premariacco, San Pietro al Natisone, San Giovanni al Natisone, Tarcento and Torreano.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
