The Ausonia winery is a true family affair. Owner and winemaker, Simone Binelli started his professional life as a pharmacist. After about six years he grew restless and dreamt of following his passion for wine. So with the support of his then fiancé, Francesca, he earned a degree from the School of Viticulture and Enology in Florence and soon took over an estate in Abruzzo, in central Italy on the Adriatic coast. Together with his now wife, Francesca, and his two brothers, Paolo and Michele, both lawyers who handle the business and law sides of the company, they organically grow and produce only indigenous varietals of Abruzzo; Montepulciano, Trebbiano and Pecorino. Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is a red wine made from the Montepulciano grape from Abruzzo, not to be confused with Rosso di Montepulciano, which is typically a Sangiovese based wine from the village of Montepulciano in Tuscany.
