History

It was the year 1582 when the princess Margherita of Austria, daughter of the Emperor Carlo V and wife of Ottavio Farnese, purchased for 52000 ducats the town of Ortona. Fascinated by the healthy air and the splendid lands decided immediately to build a palace on the seaside to pass long periods of rest. “Marghareta”, that’s how she loved being called, gave her lands of Abruzzi a great boost to produce refined wines, soon appreciated soon in the banquets of the main European courts. And, as a sign of gratitude for who has made them famous in the world, the farmers have maintained the Farnese name of the wines. 

Still nowadays the noble Farnese is obtained by the same vineyards, set on the suggestive valley of the river Moro, on the Northern side, enjoying a great exposure to the sun. The mountain massif of Maiella, 3000 metres high, here is only 30km far from the sea, creating the conditions for an ideal temperature range to produce high-breeding grapes.


Farnese “nowadays”


At Farnese we know how important is to achieve all the ambitious goals that we set by patient work without breaks and compromises leaving time, professionality and perseverance  realize our dreams. Only this way we can obtain hig-quality wines and in the Farnese wines there is all the generous freshness of new and creative energies where, however, history, memory and traditions stay sound and constant benchmarks  of a present that builds the future day after day. When tasted a wine expresses the knowledge, the history, the art and the culture of the land that has produced it, for this, in Farnese, we don’t love contenting and when the passion takes over our refined wines become rich even in an incomparable quality-price ratio and are ready to excite the most demanding consumers of all over the world.


Where the Farnese wines have chosen to rest and grow


Recovering and restoring Castle Caldora of Ortona, made by medieval and 15th-century structures, revised and enlarged in the 19-20th century, it is an operation that originates from a business strategy of Farnese to increase its visibility and prestige equipping itself with an ancient seat.


Our wines age


The refined Farnese wines, fruit of the best grapes coming from the Farneto Valley Estate and from other relevant plants from Abruzzi, complete their growth also in the splendid cellars of Castello Caldora, a structure whose restoration we have looked after to grant continuity to a wine and historic tradition vital for Ortona, assuring the Farnese wines a suitable ageing to the prestige that makes them leaders on the international markets.


Where the Farnese grapes are cultivated and gow


Our vineyards are set on the heights of the province of Chieti and Teramo and both the owned and the rental part are contantly controlled by two agronomists that look after all the processing phases to obtain grapes of excellent quality. The yields per hectare never overcome those established by the procedural guidelines and in many cases they are lowered with proper thinnings to allow to obtain grapes of great concentration.
