About the Winery
The Ciu Ciu Italian wine company was established in 1970. It is known for the authentic wines that it produces year after year. These wines are symbolic of the unique geography of the region where the Ciu Ciu farm is located. Situated on the hills of Picen0, Offida, where the estate is located, is blessed by abundant coastal breezes that flow from the Adriatic coast nearby.
The nearby municipalities of Tronto and Tesino are known for their high wine-producing potentials. These also reflect in the quality of wine produced at Ciu Ciu in Offida. When Natalino and his wife Anna from the Bartolomei family established the Ciu Ciu wine estate in 1970, they wanted to create wines that spoke volumes about the character of the territory. They have managed to keep this tradition intact even today.
