    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.
