Hermitage of the White Friars is surrounded by 60,000 square meters of natural, uncontaminated woods.
Once an ancient monastic complex of Camaldolites, the Hermitage is an enchanted place, with grottoes carved out of the tufa rock, creating an atmosphere that preserves intact the magical aura of time and traditions. Here, a truly unspoiled natural environment was both recipient and watchful guardian of the prayers and work of the ‘White Friars’ who mainly devoted themselves to forest agronomy and agriculture, for centuries.
From this place in which peace and silence reign, the neighboring farmers have inherited a love for tending grapevines.
And it was this magical place which inspired the Sparapani family to produce great wines, the fruit of hard work and passion.
