A story made of love. Love for the Umbrian hills, love for quality, love for the “magic” that brings a bunch of grapes to turn into a liquid capable of challenging time. A story that originated in the early 1900s and currently operated by the 4th generation. The Goretti estate stands on a hilly area near Perugia, Umbria which features a renovated 14th century tower and is the flagship and emblem of the winery. Concentrating on the harmony of flavors attached to one’s roots and known how to transfer it to the finished product is a real art and represents the particular styles of Goretti wines. They work in the belief that the quality of the wines is never the result of improvisation but of a deep knowledge of land, climate, and production processes.

Rascioni & Cecconello
This winery’s story starts in 1973 when two passionate farmers, Ms Vinvcia Rascioni and Mr Paolino Cecconello, began focusing on the company’s vineyards and cellar. In 1988 Mr. Attillo Pagli joined the company and continues to pursue the idea of producing high quality wine through original vines like Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo.

The winery demonstrates high quality characteristics of a grape vinified purely with no additions. Nowadays Sabrina, heir of Vincia and Paolino, with her husband Paolo and son Emanuele have achieved international success with their wines.
