The Producer

About Conestabile della Staffa

The history of Conestabile della Staffa wines offers a glimpse into Umbrian culture guided by Danilo Marcucci, a master natural wine artisan. The estate, tied to his wife Alessandra's noble lineage, reflects centuries of Umbrian heritage. Originating from Orvieto and Perugia, the Conestabile and Della Staffa families united in an arranged marriage in the 1700s, aiming to consolidate land and influence in the region. At its peak in the 1800s, the property spanned over 700 hectares, with 100 hectares devoted to vineyards. The estate flourished as the most prominent winery in the Trasimeno-Perugino area, producing over 10,000 hectoliters annually. However, post-World War II, wine production declined.

Nestled in the heart of Italy, Umbria is characterized by rolling hills, fertile valleys, and historic hilltop towns.

Natural winemakers in Umbria are deeply rooted in the land, practicing organic and biodynamic farming methods to nurture healthy vineyards and preserve the region's biodiversity. In the cellar, they employ minimalist techniques, favoring spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and minimal sulfur usage to allow the true expression of the grapes to shine through. The resulting wines are vibrant, expressive, and full of personality, with a sense of place that reflects the unique terroir of Umbria. Whether enjoyed with hearty Umbrian cuisine or savored on their own, natural wines from this enchanting region offer a taste of Italy's winemaking heritage and the promise of discovery with every sip.
