A family unit with Montepulciano at its heart

  • Mario and Simona are born winemakers - the TLC they put into just one bottle is enough to leave most mere mortals needing a good lie down. They are a father and daughter duo who thrive under the pressure of a busy harvest - in fact the whole family rolls up their sleeves to support them, with Simona's two younger sisters and Mario's wife on hand to help run the winery itself. 
  • With winemaking roots harking back four generations, their drive has been handed down through the years and centres around their love for Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. It's one very small grape that represents a whole lot more for Mario, Simona and their family winery.
  • 'The path is never easy. There are many difficulties to face and sometimes the strength is lacking, but the love for this job is greater. Our greatest joys are our customers and seeing their faces smile and appreciate our wines is our greatest achievement.' Mario and Simona, Winemakers
