Our Cantina, our Home
Surrounded by the Fiano vine, our Cantina, which is home for us, is located on a hill, about 600 m above sea level, in the Taverna del Monaco area (Grottolella).
Since for us it is a home, rather than a workplace, we would like our guests to feel at home. This is why – in addition to the winemaking area – we have spaces dedicated to hospitality ; we like to explain to our guests the wine-making techniques that we use. A barrel room and a tasting room complete a space more specifically dedicated to the transformation of grapes into wine.
THE WINE-MAKING AREA
The presence of advanced systems, both for pressing and for the biochemical processes of transforming the grapes into wine and its refinement, together with the use of the most recent technologies make our winemaking area a cutting-edge space.
To complete this area there is a small laboratory for analyzing grapes, musts and wines; an indispensable place to carry out some fundamental analyzes of grapes and wines.
THE BARREL ROOM
The barrel room is the area of the cellar intended for resting (mainly) red wines: it is here that we find large 50Hl barrels, barriques and tonneaus, all made of medium toasted French oak. It is a space subjected to controlled temperatures, in dim light and extremely silent. For aging in wood and refinement in the bottle, in fact, adequate rooms are essential, which have a temperature oscillating between 10°C and 12°C constant throughout the year.
THE TASTING ROOM
A place where we meet and discuss, the tasting room is the right space to taste our wines paired with traditional culinary products. The majesty and beauty of a room made of chestnut wood, tuff and stones also makes the space suitable for holding events such as conferences, presentations or private parties.
