“Every day the most important thing is always the vineyard”

Famiglia Santone

 

Our history tells the story of a family that has always been dedicated to wine and traditions.

Everything started from the stubborn intuition of our father Tito Gabriele, an authentic winemaker who transmitted his boundless passion, knowledge, and spirit of sacrifice to us three brothers: Massimo, Pasqualino, and Carlo Alberto. Today as then our daily life is made of the many gestures to be made in the year that runs between two harvests to give life to Santone wines.

Background

We have been winemakers for generations, faithful to a great territory of wines and grape varieties.

Since 1984, we have been taking care of the vineyards that represent a true heritage of Abruzzo and Italy – especially the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Pecorino, Trebbiano, Malvasia, and Chardonnay. Along the 180 hectares of vineyards that we cultivate in a sustainable way between Silvi, Atri, Roseto and Notaresco, the ideal soil and climate develop between the Gran Sasso and the Adriatic.

Da quando era ragazzo ha lavorato le vigne dei Sorricchio, una famiglia di grandi proprietari terrieri abruzzesi, e così è nata la sua passione per la vite e il vino. «Nostro padre è un vignaiolo autentico», raccontano i figli Massimo, Pasqualino e Carlo assieme alla madre Dea Rosanna. «Per lui, la cosa più importante ogni giorno è la vigna, con i suoi bisogni e le sue potenzialità».
