Knowing one of the oldest wine-making areas in Italy, be in solidarity with its roughness and its beauty, protect an incomparable agricultural landscape and a productive fabric made up of a thin network of handed down knowledge, cultivating the land with respect. All this is the daily commitment of the forty members who are part of Pisaurum today. Founded in 1969, Pisaurum is today the most important aggregation structure for most of the winegrowers, often conductors of small companies, who work the over 60 hectares of vineyards that extend between the Foglia, Metauro and Cesano rivers. In 2014, together with the historic Colonnara winery in Cupramontana, Pisaurum creates Marchedoc, a reality that reflects the common values and the goal of continuing to produce and enhance authentic and sincere fruits of this region.
We have chosen the Latin name Pisaurum, the ancient name of Pesaro, because the Romans here found "fertile lands, present the vineyards". Our logo recalls the ancient wheel of the Picenes of the Stele di Novilara, an ancestral symbol of the Sun, to remind us that progress is a conquest made from generation to generation and that we contribute to building it with our work. In the Pesaro viticultural panorama, Pisaurum produces a high quality production and, thanks to the selection work carried out first on the vineyards and then in the cellar, it succeeds in interpreting and enriching the ancient enological flavor of these lands and its typologies of characteristic wines.
The fulcrum of our production is the Doc, a selection of fine wines with limited production: Bianchello del Metauro and Colli Pesaresi, produced from native vines cultivated from the sea of Monte San Bartolo to the high clay-limestone hills of Montefeltro. To the cultivation of the historic Pesaro vines, we have added other varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Nero, Merlot, which enrich our wines in variety and quality. We have always paid great attention to a production that respects the environment and the wine itself, guaranteed by the experience and deep roots of each of our members. Today more than 50% of our grapes comply with organic standards, with a percentage that is growing year by year. The vinification takes place in the cellar of San Lorenzo in Campo, near the medieval historic center of Pergola, famous for its Roman bronzes.
