The Berioli's farm has been in Montesperello of Magione since the beginning of 1900 and the farm has ever produced grapes, olives and wheat.
The farm is located on the hillside of Montesperello around the Trasimeno Lake in Umbria, between the town of Magione (4 km from the Magione exit of the motorway Perugia-Bettolle) and Corciano (7 km from the Corciano exit), and it's just 12 km from Perugia.
The produced olive oil has always been of excellent quality, but it is the wine, that has always been the most important and profitable product for the Berioli's family. Just in recent years, thanks to the ability, willingness and expertise of its owner Roberto Berioli, the wines have achieved high levels of quality. Thanks to his philosophy and focus on research were introduced in the vineyards many innovations, in accordance with tradition and always bearing in mind that: "the wine is made in the vineyard".
With new acquisitions in recent years and the restructuring and replanting of new vineyards, the Berioli's farm currently cultivates 11 hectares of vineyard. The vineyards are all kept at Guyot with the density of 5000 plants per hectare. Thanks to the attention which every year are spent in the care and protection of vineyard (low fertilisation, defoliation and careful selection of the grapes...) the grapes arrive in the winery healthy and ripe.
The new wine cellar has been obtained from the original space of the winery, recently renovated. Here the red wine is refined in Barriques barrels for more than 12 months. In this cellar, the wine is still produced according to tradition, and treated as a precious product of the earth, as the Vinsanto "Sperello", is aged in the "caratelli"(kegs) and positioned above the barrel and near the windows so that it can feel the warm and cold from outside.
Today Roberto Berioli, with his wife Cristina and their son Matteo and their doughter Assunta and their families, carry on this activity by respecting nature and tradition.
