Farm history

The farm marks the rebirth of the tradition of quality winemaking in the Upper Tiber Valley.

It winemaking traditions date from the time of  the Romans.

Some letters by Pliny the Younger mentioned it; he  had a property just below the farm, consisting of extensive grounds and a large villa, his favourite.

The farm is located at an altitude ranging from 550 to 600 meters with a southwest exposure.
It covers 90 hectares, including vineyard and olive trees.

The vineyards enjoy a cool and very sunny climate that allows for the production of very aromatic grapes thanks to the relatively significant temperature range. 

The visit

The winery sommelier  will wait for you by the Romans ruins of  Pliny the Younger’s property.

Is  not possible to visit the archeological site, but from the outside you can see ruins of places where wine and oil were produced in Roman times.

Looking up the hill you can see the vineyard and the winery you will be visiting.

The visit starts with a walk in the vineyard.

The sommelier will show you the different types of grapes and explain the peculiarity of each one.

Then you move on to wine cellar to visit it and learn the complete wine-making process.
