In turn, the two princesses had purchased the property from the Grand Duke Leopold of Habsburg, which was responsible for the birth of the "Vineyard of Pallino" at the end of 1800.
The oldest vineyard dates back to 1935 and has always been called the "Vineyard of the Empire" was planted by His Royal Highness the Duke Amedeo of Aosta, viceroy of Ethiopia, and named to commemorate the victory of the war in Africa and the birth of Italian Colonial Empire with the conquest of Abyssinia. To this end, the Duke commissioned his uncle HRH Emanuele Filiberto Count of Turin, General Designate of the Army and General of Cavalry, to personally work to achieve in the shortest possible time the vineyard. Work proceeded with difficulty, because of a drop of 30%, which forced him to fill the land and its subsequent terracing is still visible, and ended in 1939.
