The vineyards of our estate are only a few kilometers away from Orvieto. They are on the hills overlooking Lake Corbara. along the Tiber river, right above the road from Orvieto to Todi. This area, known as the "classic" zone, is the oldest and most well known wine-producing land in the Orvieto province. An aristocratic house, that dates back to Roman era, probably controlled the surrounding hills, which are now covered with vineyards and olive groves. Archaeological research has shown that grapevine and olive grove cultivation in the Classica area dates back thousands of years to the Etruscan era. Along the Tiber, the ruins of an ancient Roman harbor are proof of the fact that these products were shipped to Rome itself. In the medieval period, many fortified castles with watchtowers were built to protect the borders of Orvieto and Todi. Our castle, the Castello di Monticello was one of these fortresses: approximately one hundred people inhabited the grounds and were charged with tending to the surrounding lands, which were dedicated to grapevine, olive, and cereal cultivation.
