The Story

Monti Cecubi Winery is located in Itri (Province of Latina, Latium), between woods and forests of cork, on the hills watching Sperlonga Sea. This is the land of the old Vino Cecubo, the Ancient Roman wine. Produced in the area between the towns of Fondi, Itri and Sperlonga (kown as "Ager Caecubum"), Cecubo was the most important wine in Ancient Roman times, both during the Republican era and in the Imperial age, and therefor eulogized by many classical poets, such as Horace, Pliny the Elder and Columella. The Estate has retrieved and selected the indigenous grape varieties to bring back Cecubo wine and, thanks to the use of organic farming methods, we have reintroduced viticulture in our region… so fertile and rich of natural beauty. The soil composition, the exposition, the sea influence and the temperature range are the precious elements that, together with our deep passion, give Monti Cecubi vineyards the power to produce intense, fresh, long-life and unique wines... just like the tradition of the old Cecubo wine.
