“Vale ‘cchié a nasce sotte a na ‘bbona hêre
che essere fèije de gran signêre”.
“It’s better to be born under a shining star rather than being the son of a fine gentleman”.
– Ancient Abruzzese Proverb

Our shining star is our hills: The hills of the ‘Teramane’, where the deep-rooted origins of our family lie.

130

YEARS OF HISTORY

The history of ‘San Lorenzo’ is written in this unique corner of Abruzzo, ongoing for five generations.
The wines of ‘San Lorenzo’ are the expression of a relationship that unites us with the hills of the ‘Teramane’, the result of an experience passed down for generations and with due respect towards our native vines.

In each of our bottles, lies an expression of our commitment that we dedicate to our wines while narrating, as well as preserving the heritage of these areas. -

- The family organisation of the company is the key of our success because it allows us to pay particular attention to the product, due to the detailed control of the entire production supply-chain, starting from the cultivation, to the enological aspects up to the stage of sale.
