The vines grow at about 300 meters above sea level in the Murgia, an area with challenging climatic conditions that throughout time have always forced its inhabitants to work with great devotion. Harsh winters, temperatures that fluctuate dramatically, deep ravines, thick fog often covering the vineyards and especially its proximity to the ancient volcano Vulture are only some of the characteristics of this territory that rewards patient hard work with precious harvests.
Varietals’ unique identity
Local varietals like Aglianico, Nero di Troia and Fiano pugliese represent the heart of the Castel del Monte agronomic history.
The barrel cellar is deep inside the winery. Oak barriques rest under a double barrel vault ceiling that was built using the same tuff bricks.
