About Us

Between Apiro and Cupramontana, right at the heart of the lands of Verdicchio, we have been devoting our utmost care to our vines for generations. We strive to make true wines, telling the story of our wonderful land and, to some extent, of us personally, of our passion, and of our determination, by which we have made so many sacrifices and a few privations to go on and always try to get the best from our ten hectares of vineyards. We have made it, at last, or so it seems. Critics praise us and our products are included in the wine-list of several important restaurants.

But there is still a long way to go, as we know. This is why we make one small step ahead every year, as Verdicchio, the world’s greatest white grape, demands.

The territory of Apiro ensures its best expression: located on a hill at the feet of Mount San Vicino (m 1479)...read more

The Vines

Verdicchio, the King of White Wines, a Red Wine disguised as a White one. Its origins are lost in centuries, but then converge into the only land where it can always give its best. It is a strong, full-bodied variety of grapes, which tends to late ripening and favours well-exposed hilly regions and calcareous-clayey soils, preferably not too dry. It has excellent sugar-development properties and ...read more

HARVEST 2016

Looking at the general weather condition all over thru the year, we had: a dry spring with warm temperatures, a bit above the average for the period which anticipated the budding; the summer season brought more rain with numerous thermal oscillations.
