Umani Ronchi: Le Marche Wines

Founded in the 1950s by the Bianchi-Bernetti family. Today, Massimo Bernetti and his son Michele manage Umani Ronchi's 210 hectares (518 acres) which lie in both Le Marche and Abruzzo. Umani Ronchi produces a large variety of both white and red wines, all of which are made from their own grapes. Over the past four years a number of these have won prestigious awards. Ulisse Patalocchi La Rose was our host and guide for the visit to Umani Ronchi's winery located just outside the city of Osimo. The winery itself is very modern and well maintained. It features an architectural masterpiece in its aging cellar. The cellar was built by excavating the hillside under one of the vineyards and installing bricks and gravel to balance the moisture.
