Our father, Guido Cocci Grifoni, had a determined, single vision to create a great white wine in the Piceno, a land known only as a producer of full-bodied and generous red wines. He re- discovered something unique, something that was always there but had been buried by forgetfulness. This discovery was an ancient autochthonous grape variety that had disappeared for years: the Pecorino.
The recovery of this grape variety, which our family has greatly contributed to, helped to both save an authentic Italian heritage and to express a pure vision of ‘terroir’. Now, through a series of unique and now historical factors, the Pecorino wine is appreciated by the world and is an icon for a large community of winemakers.
The Cellar of Relais guards the secrets of wine vinification and has a large room with an oenological museum and barrique cellar for important tasting and special events linked to wine.
