The winery is located in the center of an area of great naturalistic interest bathed by the Cervaro torrent and protected by the institution of a Regional Park. The wine cellar, the pleasant show room and the vineyards are only 500 meters from the Sanctuary of Mary Mother of God Crowned, pilgrimage destination of thousands of people from all over the world.

The vineyards enjoy the particular environmental and climatic conditions of the Tavoliere, which expresses a natural and historical vocation to the cultivation of the vine.
