    In the early 1980s, thanks to the far-sighted ideas of Laura Drighi, one of Roberto's daughters, the wine estate converted its cultivation according to the method of organic farming.

    Agriturismo

    Agriturismo

    In 1985, along with our agricultural activities, we began restoring the four old farmhouses into apartments and rooms, including two swimming pools and a restaurant. Our agriturismo offers peace and pleasure in beautiful, green surroundings. Guided visits through the estate’s vineyards and winemaking cellar allow our guests to discover the countryside and to personally witness the wine production.
