History

The MARCHESI DE’ CORDANO ancient winery prides itself on its meaningful history which goes back in time to the beginning of the 18th century when a descendant of the Marquis of Florence Francesco DE’ CORDANO inherited lands which had earlier belonged to the Kingdom of Naples.
This estate was a magnificent land then and still is today. The Western side presents a range of hills which runs up the foot of the mountains of Abruzzo and it descends to the sea in the East. It is a hilly territory with a warm climate which enjoys gentle breezes and is particularly noted for its cultivation of vines and olive trees. This land inspired the first production of wine which was produced for the local nobility. As a reward for his wine-making skills Francesco Cordano was knighted in 1726 taking the title of Vinattiere.
As a result of many years of experience in establishing his wine-making operation and working with vineyards in France and Spain the first wines of the Marquis de Cordano were produced. Wine production became the main vocation of the MARCHESI DE’ CORDANO and since then there have been no boundaries to its popularity from Naples and Florence, up to Hapsburg Austria.
This long tradition has been maintained and enhanced by Francesco and Vittorio who are regarded by their colleagues and competitors as two of the most authoritative wine experts of the region. They continue to build on the great achievements of their ancestors by evolving the technological profile and enhancing the quality levels of MARCHESI DE’ CORDANO vines and wine production. Their experimentation has made use of a combination of vines from indigenous stock as well as vines from abroad.
