In 1582, Princess Margarita of Austria, daughter of Emperor Charles V, married Duke of Parma Ottavio Farnese and bought Orton for 52,000 ducats. Fascinated by the fresh air and picturesque lands of the region, she decided to build a castle on the seaside for recreation. The construction of "Margarita" - so affectionately called the castle - gave a great impetus to the development of the surrounding lands and the development of viticulture and winemaking. The wines quickly became not just popular, they decorated numerous banquets of the main European courts.
Today, Farnese continues to cultivate the very vineyards in the northern part of the picturesque Moro Valley. The vineyards have a beautiful exposition, and the mountain Maiella, which is 3000 meters high, only 30 km from them, creates an excellent microclimate. The area of leased vineyards is 150 hectares, the total annual production is 11000000 bottles. According to the wine critic Antonio Galloni of the magazine Wine Advocate, "Farnese wines are clean," right "and very tasty." The farm does not deviate too far from its main course - the production of simple, well-made wines. " Currently, Farnese offers two lines: the first - a simple high-quality wine, the second - a series of "Casale Vecchio", which consists of special wines. Farnese represents an unbeatable price-quality ratio and that's why the winery has been recognized for three years in a row by the "Italian Wine Year"!
