The Origins

The first historical documentation that bears witness to the importance of the vine dates back to the 13th century “… on March 30th 1253, a colony contract was stipulated for a vineyard in the Valdragone area between the grantor Sabatino of San Marino and the conductor Deutaidi di Superclo da San Marino…”

History

The first Rustic Cadastre of the history of the Republic, written in 1775, and some official documents reconstruct the history of San Marino enology. Already at the time, the white Canino, the Biancale, the Trebbiano, the black and white Moscatello, the Aleatico, the Albana and the Sangiovese were the most common vines. I vanti were raised a few palms from the ground, with vines married to maples and accompanied by olive and fruit trees.

So small, so unique.

We produce wines that satisfy taste and soul.

Quality

The bowels of Monte Titano become the source of fine and quality wines. The fresh caves and cavities of the mountain act as a natural cellar, giving the wines properties and unique flavors. Over the years, the quality and fame of San Marino wines has spread rapidly, thanks to their trade that has reached Venice. Wine production in the heart of San Marino gives life to some of the most appreciated wines, such as Sangiovese and Moscato which, in a short time, are affirmed thanks to their flavor.

Tourism and Trade

Tourism is a driving force for the San Marino wine trade. The “Caves” of Borgo Maggiore become the perfect resting place during days of fairs and markets, where tourists can taste the local wine, feeding its fame. We are at the end of 1800, when Borgo became the commercial hub of the Republic, as well as the cradle of very fine wines.
In 1878, 1889 and 1890, at the Exposition Universelle de Paris, some San Marino winemakers were awarded for the quality of their white and Sangiovese wines.
