Terre Margaritelli

Since 1870, the Margaritelli family has associated our name and history with the unique nature of this land, a region fortunate in its environment and artistry, backed by a rich tradition of mysticism and sacred character.From our determination to infuse products with the worth and genuineness of the land, in synergy with the passion and creativity that for decades has inspired and distinguished the family Margaritelli, is born a label profoundly authentic: Terre Margaritelli. The winery extends over 52 hectares (about 125 acres).  Our expansive vineyard enrobes a marvelous hill, Miralduolo, in the center of Umbria between Perugia and Assisi in the noted wine region of Torgiano, one of the first Italian DOC zones (Torgiano obtained DOC recognition in 1968).  The historical DOCG recognition for our region was obtained with the Torgiano Rosso Riserva in 1990.

Of the diverse varietals cultivated, the majority is represented by the traditional vines of Umbria’s wine culture. For the whites we have Trebbiano, Grechetto and Chardonnay, plus other varietals planted as experiments such as Pecorino il Fiano and Traminer. For the important reds we have several clones of Sangiovese, as well as Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Around thirty hectares are designated for regular production and market, while the other 22 hectares consist of experimental vines. The winery, in fact, in line with a family tradition always oriented towards innovation and the quest for perfection, is equipped with an experimental wine laboratory which works with small quantities of diverse varietals. We test the production of each and seek to optimize the process of vinification, in relation to the specifications unique to the terroir of Torgiano.In April 2009 the first bottles of our DOC Torgiano wine, one red and one white, entered the commercial market. Today our winery additionally produces 4 labels of Umbria IGT wines which represent just the beginning point of an important project of expansion.
