Contesa

Region: Abruzzo


History

The Contesa estate comprises of 30 hectares of vineyards surrounding the winery, on a south-east facing hill at 250 metres above sea level.
A family run business, Contesa was established by wine-maker Rocco Pasetti, and as his children have grown up they have also joined him in business.
Contesa ruled out the use of weed killers, changed the phyto-health program of the vineyards, rationalising the use of pesticides in favour of the "sexual confusion" method.
