Ampeleia

Ampeleia was born in 2002 from the collaboration and friendship between Elisabetta Foradori, Thomas Widmann and Giovanni Podini. They saw in Ampeleia a place where they could not only develop an agricultural project but also fulfil a common visio

In the 60’s, Erica and Peter Max Suter, a Swiss couple, bought the abandoned farm and turned it into a rural estate with woods and pastures, breeding sheep and pigeons as well as planting a vineyard; soon the Meleta winery (in Italian, 'Meleto' is an apple orchard and the winery was named after the orchard on its land) was known for its wine and products. It was at that time that Cabernet Franc and Merlot were introduced to Roccatederighi. 

The varieties growing on the estate are adapted to the highly different altitude levels, soil types and environments; some varieties are fermented together and then are blended to become the wine that best expresses the land of Roccatederighi as a whole: Ampeleia.

Today, the estate extends over three altitude levels and covers 33 hectares of vineyard producing an average of 160,000 bottles annually.
