The farm, located at an altitude of about 450 meters above sea level, covers 270 acres, it is situated at the foot of Mount Tezio, among olive trees, vineyards, forests and fields. Here the plants benefit from privileged hillside position, characterized by an area of rocky limestone surface and deep clay, particularly suited to the cultivation of grapes and olives.
The farm is now followed by the new generations who continue the family tradition with passion and respect for the land, safeguarding the environment and reviving the village in complete harmony with the landscape and nature.
The company adheres to the protocols of the Umbria region for agri-environment, which contemplate a reduction of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in crops, replaced with natural soil improvers certified organic.
The white varieties are Chardonnay, crossed Manzoni (Reysling Rhenish and Pinot Blanc) and Malvasia, the latter used for a small production of Vin Santo, prepared by the family for over a hundred years. For the red wine, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. The harvest is manual and, for the white grapes, is made in the last half of August, while for the red grapes in the second half of September.
The olives are harvested by hand and are pressed the same day, to maximize the organoleptic properties of the product. The cold pressing occurs exclusively in a traditional mill, with a granite grinding stone, which allows the oil to maintain a cloudy appearance, a dark green color with some gold nuances and a delicately fruity flavor. The oil is available to buy in size of 500ml or 750ml and can be sent by courier directly to your home.
On the farm we breed some special pigs, the ones our ancestors used to use in the Umbrian countryside: black pigs. This is a typical slow-growing Italian breed, with a high quality meat particularly suitable for the production of fine sausages and hams. You can watch them graze in the wild and have the opportunity to taste the products we make from their meat.
We also give all our guests the opportunity to directly buy food from our organic vegetable garden.
