TENUTA LA VIOLA
The Gabellini family, owner of the estate, moved from the inland Romagna to Bertinoro and in 1962 purchased the land with Sangiovese and Albana vineyards, then bush trained.
Wine was an important part of the farming tradition, and serving it on the table meant sharing with guests one’s love and pride in the fruits of one’s labour. Even back then, it was not just refreshment, but way of uniting people, a chance to spend quality time together.
For Tenuta La Viola, wine is a tradition and passion that permanently binds to Romagna Land. Tenuta La Viola family firmly believe that the history, experience, dedication and professionalism of the people who work it all come together in the quality and character of the wines it produces, making them unique.
