Here at Monteciccardo…
Both our vineyards and our winery are in Monteciccardo, a place where the four seasons still alternate with great precision and Nature accomplishes its cycle as people almost do not expect anymore.
The memory of our own roots is living in our grandfather Ilario and in his hands. He has been growing vineyards since forever and he has been producing wine since he was a young man, when the important issue was to have good wine not a good packaging.
We preserve our grandfather’s memories as the most precious gift. These have become our flagship. We have improved and developed his knowledge and experience by studying and by refining scientific research.
Inspired by Ilario, today we are pioneers in the production of wine and extra virgin olive oil. We have been working to make the essence of this land shareable thanks to a line of products that are healthy and long-lived.
A pure land
Our philosophy is based on the respect of the circle of life, both in the vineyard as in the olive tree grove.
The witnesses of our respectful behavior are the bees. In fact they have found in this valley, protected by its own hills and caressed by the sea breezes, their ideal habitat.
In the cellar and in the olive oil mill we experience the strength and power of becoming. The grapes and the olives, looked after for a year in the field with care and wisdom, are turned into wine and extra virgin olive oil with the aid of the latest technology including a prototype which we developed and that we use in our olive oil mill.
Freshness and green tones, from sage to balsamic notes, salinity and complexity are our signature.
“I like bonds. I consider them gifts that I defend and protect.
So, at some point in my life, I decided to bind me inextricably to the land and with my family I founded the Conventino of Monteciccardo.
Il Conventino keeps my nature and my roots, but mostly preserves the history and traditions that belong to everyone.
We cultivate the land with this spirit and produce wine in the share name.
Wine that aggregates and gladden the hearts, which is the direct link between man and Mother Nature, what foods the will to life.
The tension led me to happiness in a vineyard and I hope that every sip of my wine is worthy witness. “
