The estate is owned by the Briziarelli family, founded in 1906 by the patron of Pio Briziarelli (1878-1966).
Over the years, the company has acquired numerous plots of land in areas of particular interest, including 50 hectares in the heart of the famous production area of the Sagrantino di Montefalco.
