The name of this winery derives from that of an ancient water source that gushed out where the vineyards grow today.
We are in the Marches where the land meets the sea, where the vineyards find the right climatic balance to experience all the peculiarities of the territory.
All the steps that take place in the cellar are precise and respectful of the times, with refinements that occur only in the best woods, ideal for enriching the complexity of each type, while preserving, at the same time, the varietal traits of departure.
The winery has embraced the organic specification with which all its labels are produced today.
This particular grape variety, called Incrocio Bruni 54 was created in 1936 by prof. Bruno Bruni, who worked for the Ministry of Agriculture between 1930 and 1950, crossing the Sauvignon Blanc and Verdicchio varieties through pollination. Over the years this grape was almost disappearing and is currently found only in the Marche region where research has been carried out to protect it. The resulting wine is particularly pleasant, a fusion between Italy and the rest of the world, respected in every phase of winemaking, from manual harvesting to soft whole bunch pressing, to preserve all the most special organoleptic characteristics.

Right from the earth we must begin to tell the story of Fontezoppa Cellars.

A Civitanova Alta and in Serrapetrona has found the right balance between climate and richness of the soil, so it is in the space between the Adriatic Sea and the Blue Mountains that Fontezoppa Cellars grow and mature their best wines. Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet, Tear, but also Maceratino, Crossing Bruni, Pecorino are the vines planted around Civitanova Alta, under the beneficent influence of the sea.
