DRINKING WINE TO SAVOR THE WORLD

DRINKING WINE TO SAVOR THE WORLD

From the mountains to the sea

The main tratturi ran from mountains to sea, usually 60 old footsteps wide (111 meters) and up to 250 km long. They were connected by a thick web of smaller crossroads, called tratturelli, which innervated every part of this pasture land.
Today most of this road network no longer exists, either transformed into motorways or fields and vineyards.
Yet wherever you go in Abruzzo you’ll always end up, even without realizing it, stepping over an ancient tratturo.

The heart of tradition

Even where the paths have disappeared, the long imprint of the roads can still be sensed underfoot, often marked by spaces between vineyards or by long, bare areas of earth descending along the hillside. The stops on the way still remain along the shepherd’s path, in the villages and rural churches where they would rest.

In a land of shepherds

Perched along the slopes of the Maiella, wild but open to the world and to hiking, the land of an ancestral relationship with nature, the shepherds of Abruzzo still live in our territory today. If you meet them along the way, they have only a few words and perhaps a chunk of cheese, that pairs perfectly with the good wine that you can offer them. A wine of Abruzzo like Pecorino is still thriving today thanks to them, and their herds that have long fertilized the vineyards on their perennial journey.

In the heart of Abruzzo, in the heart of Italy

Though not one of the most famous Italian regions, Abruzzo is without a doubt one of the best-known for their local tradition.
Nestled in the center of the Italian peninsula and spanning from the highest peaks of the Apennines to the long Adriatic coastline, it is an authentic example of small-town Italy – in many ways rebuilt, yet never abused by modernity and still charming and loved.
It is here, in the town of Atessa, that our family has lived for centuries.
