wine producer


Region: Umbria


Founded in 1884, Cantina Scacciadiavoli (literally translating as “cast out the devils”), takes its name from a 19th century exorcist who lived in a small village bordering the vineyard. He was known to use wines from the estate whilst performing his exorcist rituals to rid the poor of 'demons'.
The Prince of Piombino, Ugo Boncompagni-Ludovisi built the winery in 1884 as a complex and modern wine “factory”. Today, the Pambuffetti family owns Scacciadiavoli.


The estate itself is made up of 130 hectares, 35 of which are vineyards with an annual production of approximately 250,000 bottles. The vines cover a hill in the heart of the Montefalco appellation divided between the three provinces of Gualdo Cattaneo, Giano dell’Umbria and Montefalco.
