The vignaron, the territory, the vineyard

If wine was one of the most important signs of civilization for Hemingway, for Claudio Cipressi it’s giving value to the land where he was born – Molise.

Molise is a beautiful region with a unique landscape. It is largely uncontaminated and the vineyards have great potential, which is why Claudio cultivates 16 hectares with enthusiasm.

The native grape vines he grows now include: 12 Molise Tintilia, 1,5 Montepulciano,
about 1 Falanghina and 0.5 Trebbiano.


Between clouds and hills

San Felice del Molise, a timeless place where rhythms are still linked to a pristine nature. A thousand-year-old historical context immersed in the traditions and culture of doing, between perched countries and fairy-tale scenery.

It is here, at almost 600 meters high, that we cultivate our vineyards and produce our wine, every day with the same intensity and care as ever.


Organic Company and environmental respect

Claudio’s cultivation method is strictly organic out of respect for the environment, the farm is officially certified as organic and since 2014 also the winery is certified as organic.

He is extremely picky in choosing which grapes to harvest, selecting each bunch by hand. In the wine cellar he uses a traditional, non invasive method to process the grapes.

He pays a lot of attention to the temperature of the grape must and to accurately use the barrels for perfecting the wine. No fruit is added during aging, which alters the taste, and so the original flavor of the grapes can be tasted in every sip.
