Our first lot consisted of 1000 bottles produced in the cellar of our friend Alessandro, we produced approximately 600 bottles of Flo’ and 400 of Corniolo. To this date I am not sure if it was luck, the novelty, or the wine itself, but the bottles sold within a few months.
The following year was the same and it was a that point that we decided to lease another vineyard.
In 2015 we purchased 3 hectares of land in the locality of Offagna: this used to an old sand mine in the 70s, which had not been planted for at least 10 years, and positioned approximately 300 m above sea level, northeast facing and with views towards Monte Conero; I immediately fell in love and thought of the white berry vine that could be planted.
Works started in 2017, sowing a typical vine from the Marche region, the Verdicchio, together with Manzoni Bianco, a cross between Riesling and Pinot Bianco which would be used to soften the flavour of the stronger local fruit. (nota – tolto marchigiano e scambiato per local grape).
In 2020 the project evolved to include “the cantina” we always dreamed of: an underground cellar for winemaking, and a wine shop to finally host the guests who will come to visit us.
