This wine is made by a winery run by the Santero family. “Your land will never betray you,” says CEO Mario, who believes that if you tend to your land with love and care it will reward you with wonderful grapes.
They work the land in San Stefano Belbo, a small town in the south of Piedmont. The winery, called Abbazia, is named after an ancient Benedictine monastery. Built on the ruins of an ancient Roman temple, the monastery dates back to the ninth century.
The winery has been in the Santero family for generations, and the youngest generation has steered the winery away from bulk production to creating fine wines of quality.
