About the winery
The Macerata vineyards are an undiscovered joy, producing a wonderful range of unusual and extraordinary wines. Ribona, Passerina, Verdicchio and a host of traditional and international verieties all grow perfectly here.Traditional and down-to-earth cantinas (with grandma at the helm) still thrive in this region, alongside innovative and modern wineries. Our vineyard tours, led by professional wine expert Graham, give you a unique, “behind the scenes” opportunity to understand organic wineries and discover the wonders of sustainable winemaking as well as experience a revelation of new flavours and varieties. Our crafted Artisan wine tours are a must for any visitor to the Le Marche region of Italy. Following several years working alongside the very best winemakers and now producing our own wines, we can guarantee you an unforgettable experience. Many of the winemakers have become great friends, allowing us an even closer insight into their world and their working day.

History & Geography
A house with history The house dates back over 350 years and was originally a grain mill. “Cotto wine” - a delicious sweet wine of the region - was also made here. It’s a beautiful home with great character and many fascinating stories to tell. David Mari (the previous owner of the house) still tends his vineyards, olive groves and “orto" (veggie patch) on the adjoining land and is there almost every day if you want to find out more. His family lived in this house since it was built in the 1700s and along with a local historian, can bring the history of the house to life with stories of his childhood and his ancestors. We are continuing the legacy of the Mari family and have returned the property and the lands to its original way, minimum impact farming producing organic food and wine and a rustic experience.
