Castello di Torre in Pietra wine producer

Castello di Torre in Pietra
This historic estate has been making wine since the Middle Ages.  The cellars were dug into the tufa hill behind the Castello itself in the 13th century, but the first record of wine being made in them dates from 1600.
 
The origins of the present commercial winery lie in the 1930s, after the run-down estate was bought by newspaper owner and politician Luigi Albertini in 1926.  He enbarked on a major restoration, including planting new vineyards and enlarging the cellars.  His family own the estate to this day.
 
The range of wines has been expanded significantly, and now comprises five reds, five whites, a rosé and a fizz.  It’s the leading estate in the region, and in 2012 it was awarded the Moneta prize by Italy’s Slow Wine guide in recognition of the good value offered across the whole range.
