Rocca di Fabbri Estate was founded in 1984 by Pietro Vitali, thanks to his many years of experience gained working in the world of antiques, he understood the close connection between the beauty of the arts, the harmony of the countryside and the food and wine traditions of the territory.
He chose the Montefalco area for its ancient grape growing and wine making traditions, whose practices were first introduced by the French Benedictine Monks, but later lost after the mid-sixteenth century.
His desire was to replant these native grape vines using special growing methods in order to produce wines that could embody both the fragrances of the land and the elegance of a Benozzo Gozzoli painting.
The inside of the Rocca, a fortress dating back to the 14th century, was restored to create the enchanting wine cellar, and the buildings located inside the walls were restored as well. Outside of the walls, a new building was built to house the winemaking equipment and is connected to the cellar via a modern tunnel.
The estate extends over approximately 60 hectares of vineyards. The annual production is about 250,000 bottles.
