Our brand originated in the lands of Tocco da Casauria (PE), a small town on the hills between the Morrone and Majella mountains, two of the pricipal massifs of the Appennino Abruzzese. The location near the gorges and the proximity to the mountains cause the dry, mild and windy climate of this valley, with a significant temperature range from day to night, perfect for viticulture. The land from which we get our grapes is rich of streams, forests, and wildlife often coming from the nearby Regional Park.Our youth is synonymous of dynamism, initiative and desire to achieve important goals, and it reflects the pure lessons and the respect of the generations that preceded us. The community in which we live, that hosts four windmills producing clean energy, taught us to preserve and to respect the natural balances that govern the ecosystem, considering them a precious good.
