In 1582, Princess Margaret of Austria, the daughter of Emperor Charles V, married the Duke of Parma Ottavio Farnese and bought the city of Orton for 52000 ducats. Fascinated by the fresh air and the picturesque lands of the region, she decided to build a castle on the coast to relax. The construction of "Margarita" - so affectionately called the castle - gave a great impetus to the development of the surrounding land and the development of viticulture and winemaking. Wines quickly became not just popular, they decorated numerous banquets of the main European courtyards.
Today, the company Farnese continues to cultivate the very vineyards located in the northern part of the picturesque valley of the river Moro. Vineyards have an excellent exposure, and Mount Maiella, 3000 meters high, just 30 kilometers from them, creates an excellent microclimate. The area of leased vineyards is 150 hectares, the total annual production is 11,000,000 bottles.

Farnese represents an unsurpassed price-performance ratio, which is why the winery has been recognized as the “Italian Winery of the Year” for three years in a row!
