The facets of Cesanese del Piglio

In Piglio, we will take a walk through the vineyards of our winery: we will hold a theoretical-practical lesson in the vineyard and you will learn the homeopathic farming methods that we use.

We will have a tasty buffet in the beautiful dining room of the farm and we will enjoy a glass of wine from our wine cellar; after lunch, you can explore the historic village of Piglio.

In our winery, you will participate in a short wine tasting course on “the Facets of Cesanese del Piglio wine” (4.30 p.m. – 6 p.m.) and discover this excellence of our territory.


The Expert Maria Ernesta: viticulture and olive growing have always been in my family history. My father Manfredi, pioneer of a new concept of viticulture and production of Cesanese del Piglio wine, has handed down to me his sincere passion for wine and for the conviviality of rural life.

The winery is located in a splendid historic family home, with rooms for farm stay, roof garden and dining room where you can enjoy the traditional and genuine dishes of Ciociaria in complete relaxation.

Viticulture and olive growing have always been in my family history.

My father Manfredi, pioneer of a new concept of viticulture and production of Cesanese del Piglio wine, has handed down to me his sincere passion for wine and for the conviviality of rural life.

Since wine harvest 2009, I have chosen to vinify on my own the grapes of the “Colli Santi” family vineyard and of other Cesanese di Affile and Passerina del Frusinate vineyards, that I acquired later. As in my paternal tradition, I do not use chemical treatments in the vineyard. With the help of my life companion Geminiano, who has brought to the winery his agronomic experiences acquired around the world, we have undertaken a viticulture which is more in line with natural dynamics, working in agro – homeopathy.

The activities in the vineyard are carried out by hand from pruning to treatments and harvesting: this allows us to monitor and support the phenological growth of the grapes and, if necessary, to use biodynamic techniques.

We follow the same path in the wine cellar, where fermentations are spontaneous, with no added sulphites in the wines, compared to the vintage.

The winery is located in a splendid historic family home, with rooms for farm stay, roof garden and dining room where you can enjoy the traditional and genuine dishes of Ciociaria in complete relaxation.
