The Winery and Farm Antonelli San Marco is one of the most ancient in Montefalco, it's an estate which extends over an entire 170 hectares located centrally within Montefalco's DOCG winemaking area. With a background rich in history, the Antonelli family is passionately committed to caring for their territory and attentive to the quality of their products.
The estate has been in the Antonelli family since 1881 when Francesco Antonelli, a lawyer, bought and transformed the property.
Stefano Antonelli, also a lawyer, and Marianna Antonelli maintained it with loving care.
Giacomo Antonelli, yet another lawyer, and Antonio Antonelli, an engineer, enlarged the property and invested in viticulture.
Filippo Antonelli has been at the helm of the estate since 1986. He divides his time between Montefalco and Rome where he manages another family wine estate, Castello di Torre in Pietra. Born in Rome in 1960, he graduated from Perugia University with a degree in agriculture. He was president of the “Consorzio Tutela Vini Montefalco” from 1996 to 2006.
The family Antonelli grows local grape variteies as Grechetto, Trebbiano, Sagrantino and they also grow olives and produce an excellent virgin oil.
