Viticulture and olive growing have always been in my family history. My father, 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. You can also take part in wine tasting courses and in particular the Cesanese del Piglio wine tasting course directly with the winemaker.

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