The Castle of Montegiove has existed since the early 12th century and has for the last four centuries been the property of the Marchesi Misciattelli. Today, still family-owned, it is the centre of an estate covering nearly 1200 hectares of beautiful Umbrian countryside, where oak forests, vineyards, olive fields and arable land blend in total harmony with ancient dry walls and farmhouses built of local stone. The principal products of the estate are wine, olive oil, cereals, beef cattle, oil seeds, forage and forest products. There is abundant wildlife such as wildboar and deer, and the local flora include truffles and mushrooms. At the surrounding land you will find marked trekking footpaths of various lengths. The beautiful surroundings and unspoiled environment make it hard to believe that Montegiove is only 17 km from Italy’s main motorway A1 (Milan – Naples), which also connects Rome and Florence.
The philosophy of the estate is based on the belief that the production must be the most faithful expression of the precious land that generates it , so the wine is produced exclusively from grapes selected , hand-picked when perfectly ripe and meticulously vinified in the cellar of the castle
