A Sip of Tradition!

Exploring The Delicious World Of Italian Wine.

All our wines are vegan friendly & produced and

bottled to the highest standard in Italy.

This exceptional wine is produced in two

plants in the heart of Italy.

The first plant takes care of the wine

making process. This plant is over 10,000

square meters and lies at the foot of the

hills of Velletri. Velletri region is one of

the highest vocation for wine of Lazio

where the grapes have the best climatic

conditions to develop and mature. The

second plant is over 11,000 square

meters, located on the hills reflected in

the Gulf of Gaeta. Here we take care

of the final stages, storing and finally

bottling the finished wine.

The wine-making plant of Velletri consists

of 40 stainless steel tanks with a storage

capacity of approximately 35,000

hectolitres of wine, and it makes use of

the best wine-making technologies to

preserve and enhance the quality of the

grapes. Also used are winemakers with

external shirts for temperature control,

thanks to a brand new refrigeration

system of 600,000 fr/h. Without at all

forgetting the presence, in the processing

room, of the best technologies for

clarification and filtration of musts.

The plant of Gaeta consists of highly

modern technology facilities for the bottling

and storage of wine, keeping to the goal

of obtaining genuine high quality wines,

whilst always respecting the ancient wine

traditions.

This factory is supplied by 70 stainless steel

tanks, which are temperature controlled,

relying on a refrigerating unit of 600.000 fr/h.

The production capacity of this plant is 6,000

bottles per hour, fully automated, limiting

the human component to the sole task of

monitoring. The total annual production,

amounts to 3,000,000 bottles, divided into

various sizes and types, although the actual

production potential would allow to reach

12,000,000 bottles a year.

Thanks to cutting-edge technology used, the

entire production chain is carried out under

the HACCP control plans, and has obtained

the certification for products by the SGS

international, the world leader in inspection,

verification, testing and certification.

What’s interesting to note is that many

wine terms in the New World are used as

marketing ploys, for example, “reserve”;

however, in Italy, these words actually have

defined meanings.
