A leader in winemaking technologies for more than 30 years, Gortani is the international reference for the production of tanks used to store liquids.
“Our story began with our grandfather, Gian Pietro. He launched this tradition in the 1960s. His strong work ethic and tenacity showed him to be a true Carnic. Dissatisfied with wooden casks to produce Sliwovitz, the plum distillate that was once produced in abundance in Carnia, and especially in Cabia (a hamlet of Arta Terme), he was looking for a steel tank to use as a model so that he could start manufacturing them himself. With the assistance of artisans and the raw material he was able to purchase at low cost, he built his first steel tank that he installed in his Gortani distillery in Arta Terme.”
It was then that Gortani products began appearing in wineries.
With Gian Paolo Gortani at the helm, the company has
continued to grow thanks to the commitment, progress and
values that have characterized its history.
