A place with a magical and ancient essence where you can feel the history and intention as you walk through our 3 tunnels dug directly into the tuff.
These tunnels maintain ideal and consistent temperature and humidity, all year round, for the aging and refining of wine in addition to helping create one of a kind scenery. The tunnels are located between 3 and 20 meters below ground level and they were abandoned after the Second World War. During the 1940’s they assumed the function of a bomb shelter to protect locals of the region from the massive bombings that struck the area. They have since been reclaimed from the roots of the plants above. Additionally, The sediments deposited in decades of neglect have been restored to their former glory, revealing the original terracotta floors and structural stone.
