Shopping wines at Castello della Sala Antinori…

is a great way to spend a day in Umbria!

The Antinori family is one of the oldest wine family of Italy and also one of the best off course!

At our cellar we have 16 bottles of Cervaro della Sala Antinori from the vintage 1998! And they are great!

The Cervaro della Sala Antinori is one of the best Italian White Wine of the world, it is a blend of Grechetto, (our Umbrian local grape)  with the international grape Chardonnay. This is one of the few white wine of the world that long like a red wine.

We love to call it the SUPER UMBRIAN WINE!

The Antinori family has more than 26 generations experience and have always pesonally managed their wine cellars and every year with more skills and knowledge. And off course always respecting the terroir!

Today  Mr.  Antinori  Piero is  the company chief together with his daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are all 100%  involved in the family wine business.
The qualities of heritage, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the worl best Italian producers of fine quality wines.

Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation.

Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods.

The Castello della Sala, built in 1350 by Angelo Monaldeschi della Vipera, is located at northwest of Orvieto in Umbria.

The Castele  was than purchased by the Marquese Niccolò Antinori.  This wine Company  Today covers a total area of 1359 acres, of which 395 are vineyard. The terroir here is special and unique clayey of volcanic and sedimentary origin and rich in Pliocene fossils.

The wines produced here are from one of the most renowned wineries in the area, they are top quality wines, like the excellent Il Cervaro della Sala wine.
