Garofoli

Casa Vinicola Gioacchino Garofoli is one of the oldest estates in The Marche, a region extending from the mountainous chain of the Apennines to the west and the Adriatic Sea to the east; bordering Abruzzi, Latium, Tuscany, Umbria and Emilia Romagna. The Garofoli’s began making wine in 1871 and remains today, one of the region’s oldest wine growing families.

The wine production is concentrated in the two areas with the oldest tradition and renown and it is these 2 wines in particular which have made the region famous. From the Castelli di Jesi comes the Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi DOC, a low yielding, crisp white variety unique to The Marche region and from a very small outcrop of land which plummets into the sea, known as the Monte Conero where the Garofoli produce tiny amounts of a special red made entirely from the Montelpulciano grape known as Agontano Rosso Conero DOC Riserva.
