Hi, yes indeed, you see I am responsible for the production and doing really the best.

For generations the Caiello family has been dedicated to agricolture and has had lands, estates and vineyards even before the First World War. The first vineyards were planted in the period during the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. In addition, even in Hungary, Slovakia and Austria, the family possessed many properties. The Italian roots are found in the beautiful city of Orvieto in Umbria in which three generations ago aunt Giovanna was another great cornerstone for the production’s development. With much toil, hard work and difficulties she developed the company which was subsequently brought to greatness of today once her niece - Gabriella Caiello - took over. Gabriella Caiello is the one who nowadays manages the estates and who represents the beginning of real palpitations for the extension of thr family business. 40 hectares (100 acres) located in the district of Perugia were added to the original 100 hectares (248 acres) in Orvieto, 230 hectares (570 acres) in Sicily, 102 hectares (252 acres) in Apulia and 192 hectares (475 acres) in Tuscany which were subsequently joined to her uncle’s vineyards in Montalcino. Additional structures with 700 hectares (1730 acres) from the family in Tuscany and roughly 50 hectares (125 acres) in Piedmont, cooperatives in Abruzzo, Le Marche and in Lazio, today they represent nearly 1200 hectares (3000 acres) of property. A great family business and a profile of the person who runs Gruppo Casaleone today: an energetic woman who loves to work while tending to her family, consisting primarily of women. Together with her cousins, they represent the SEVEN WOMEN WINERY in the wine making field ready to take on all obstacles.

Gruppo - You know you can upload winemakers notes (and images etc) to your wines. As long as you are logged in you should be able to see the "Have winemakers notes" on each wine - just click it and drop the notes in there.

Hi Philip, thanks I know, I already put all the winemakers notes!!! You cannot see them? I also tried to upload a file, but it was not possible. Have a nice sunday. Gabriella

I didnt check all your wines, but did see notes for the ones i looked at.

What was the file you wanted to upload? You should be able to upload bottle images, is that not working for you?
