A Wheat Farm Developed into a Excellent Winery
Tenuta di Tavignano was purchased in 1975 by Stefano Aymerich di Laconi and his wife Beatrice Lucangeli. Both of their families boast a long-standing tradition in wine production, as they decided to start their own winery in the countryside of Cingoli, which is known as the Balcony of Le Marche. In early years, the winery focused primarily on the cultivation of cereals, vegetables, and forage. In the 1990s, however, the business model was changed to enhance the wine-making heritage and to become producers of autochthonous varieties. The trend at that time was to produce international varieties but the owners of Tenuta di Tavignano wanted to focus on the native grape variety of the land, Verdicchio.
Low Intervention as Key to Success
Tenuta di Tavignano Winery is spread over 34 hectares of vineyard entirely located around the cellar. “No stress” and “low interventation” to the grapes have been the aim at Tenuta di Tavignano and they grow Verdicchio, Passerina, Pecorino, Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Lacrima, Cabernet Sauvignon grape varieties in their vineyard.
