A century-long family history
History is our future.
A story that comes from afar and has its roots in the early years of the '900, when the grandfather Raffaele discovered his passion for viticulture, walking through the rows of his property on the Vesuvius, while savoring the taste of nature. His passion took to the first wine-making experiments, in the wine cellar of a eighteenth-century farmhouse, property of the family, that can be still visited in the Pompeian estate, Bosco de’ Medici. In that place, few steps away from the Archeological Site of Pompeii, Raffaele and his life partner, Emiddia, found out how complex the processes of winemaking are. In these years they also built the Hotel Diana – in the centre of Pompeii – and the Horse School, in the place where now we find Bosco de’ Medici estate. In 1996 the Agricultural Company was founded, and in 2014, the desire to honor the passion of Raffaele, pushed the nephews, Emiddia, Sonia, Lella and Giuseppe to found the Winery and to start the wine production of Bosco de 'Medici. Today the Winery is the flagship of the Company, a place inspired to the passion for viticulture and wine, a place that, as grandfather Raffaele wished, recalls the noble “art” of roman otium.
The sky, the ground, a Vineyard and bare hands to work. The wine of our family … it’s completely in this magic encounter.
Our is a holistic approach, where the whole of our work, can never be traced to the sum of its components. Rather, it is an exaltation of the best of every single part.
