|Believed to have been an active church since before the year 1000a.d., this site was a Benedictine Abbey from as early as the late 13th century into the early 19th century when it also served as the local parish church. In 1871 the forbearers of the current owners purchased the estate and the first modern restoration efforts began in 1940. In 1969, the family gave the restored church back to the local diocese.
The estate now cultivates 20 hectares of vineyards in addition to grain crops and olive groves producing oil. Grape varietals include the indigenous Passerina, Pecorino Trebbiano d'Abruzzo and Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Falanghina and Tannat round out the varietals cultivated by this fine estate. |
