The Pontine Marshes - A New Land for an Ancient Wine.
In 1878 J.W. Goethe visited the Agro Pontino area and even wrote about it in his book 'The Italian Journey'.
You will travel south from Rome along a route that until the late 1920's was mostly marshland, but thanks to an ambitious project by Mussolini this vast area - stretching from Anzio to Terracina and from the coast inland towards the Lepini Mountains - developed into the thriving agricultural community of today. In Roman times, around 400 BC, the local tribes (Volsci) inhabiting the area agreed to supply grain to Rome during a severe famine. These days the main highway carries the Summer crowd to the coast, and the fruit and vegetables to Rome.
The vineyard is one of the largest in our portfolio with an impressive range of wines made from local and international grape varieties. It is fascinating to experience the uniquely acquired characteristics of well-known grape varieties that have adapted to Lazio's soils and climate. You will have a full estate tour of vineyards and cellars, followed by a private tasting of 7 premium wines, accompanied by light buffet of local cured ham, sheep cheeses, rustic bread, extra virgin olive oil and mineral water.
