Jesi, casket of history, art and culture in the hills
Jesi is immersed in an incredible hilly landscape where the Castles of the Vallesina stand out making it an ideal destination for experiential, cultural and sports tourism. Jesi is a treasure trove of art, history and culture, halfway between the mountains and the sea, it is surrounded by perfectly preserved centuries-old walls that have earned the UNESCO title of Città Esemplare for the conservation of architectural and artistic heritage. They consist of high curtain walls with corbels, open by seven doors and reinforced by towers including the symbol of the city the Torrione del Montirozzo. The historic center is made up of buildings of different epochs melted harmoniously with each other, paved streets, alleys, palaces. You can not leave Jesi without bringing a greedy souvenir of your visit home! Wine, oil, cheese, salami, honey, lonzino di fico, cavallucci, cheese pizza … the products of this land will satisfy the most demanding palates.

Around 24 hectares of vineyards are located within the municipalities of San Paolo di Jesi, Staffolo, and Cupramontana; they have different lying positions and soils being found between 250 and 450 meters a.s.l. They are specialized in the production of “Controlled Denomination Origin” wines, such as: “Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi”, “Rosso Piceno” and “Esino Rosso”. Our products range is enriched by other products: the Visciola Wine (sour cherry wine, an old and historic drink typical of our region), the Extravirgin Olive Oil and the collection of “Verdicchio Grappa.”
The beginnings of the 50s the land was assigned to Amato and his wife Maria, passionate winemakers and in the farmhouse of the farm bought started the production and marketing of the wines produced. Maurizio and his wife Serenella convinced that in order to grow and improve, one must be open to change, in 1992 they create a new production project. Our vineyards, with their stunning views over the gentle hills of the “Castelli di Jesi”, tell the story of our family’s history over the generations: a story of sacrifice, of good harvests and of others not so good; of hard work under the sun and under the rain, because wine begins, first of all, in the vineyards: tending vine by vine, shoot by shoot and grape by grape. This is the philosophy that, first my grandparents, and then my parents have passed down to me. In short, producing wine is a life choice. It is not a job. Creating a wine, shaping it with all your knowledge and passion, giving it a part of yourself and giving life to hopes and expectations. All this is hidden in its own special world and it all starts from a long way away: having the wisdom to choose the right soil, the correct variety of vine, watching it grow, honouring it and caring for it in order to finally pick its fruit, being passionate about this world in which roots merge with earth and earth with roots in order to create something special, something of your own.
