Manzoni bianco is a variety that originated in the 1930s in the City of Conegliano, in northeastern Italy, by crossing the varieties Riesling Rhine and Pinot Blanc. The author of the cross was Luigi Manzoni, an oenologist and director of the Agricultural School of Viticulture and Enology in Conegliano. Today, Manzoni bianco vineyards are mainly located in the city of Treviso and the Veneto Region. A real rarity in Istria - a unique case of breeding in red soil.
