Description

The estate has been producing wine since 1890 and is now run by 4th generation Gianluca and Fabrizio Galasso. Their vineyard is located 20 km from Gran Sasso (the highest mountain in the Apennines at 3000m asl) and the imposing mountain forms an impressive background to the vines. The vineyard is also 20 kms from the sea. This ideal position between sea and mountain provides the necessary variations in temperature, as well as the gentle breezes that create favourable air circulation, which help the grapes to grow healthily. Even the soil has unique characteristics, thanks to its clay-limestone texture and the spring water which flows in abundance beneath the soil. As far as the eye can see are row after row of vines, interlaced with small country paths lined with cypress trees, and dotted with old farmhouses, which have been carefully renovated to accommodate our guests.
