The Umani Ronchi story is one of ancient vines, land and people. Seasons waxing and waning. Harvests changing. Wines coming into being. The story began more than half a century ago at Cupramontana, in the heart of Verdicchio Classico country, and has spread further. Today Umani Ronchi is the wine estate owned by the Bianchi-Bernetti family, who since 1957 have been making superb-quality craft wines, coaxing the best out of the Verdicchio and Montepulciano that find their finest expression in Marche and Abruzzo.
From Serra dei Conti in Marche to Roseto degli Abruzzi, Umani Ronchi has a total surface area under vine of 210 hectares nestling between the hills and the sea along the Adriatic coast. The 185 km of rows are distributed across ten districts, each with its own vocation and terroir. These are numbers that tell of our ceaseless, almost feverish efforts working the finest wine lands with the help of cutting-edge vineyard management and winemaking techniques. Umani Ronchi has doubled its estate and replanted 85% of its old vines since the Seventies. We have invested in Verdicchio and Rosso Conero and recovered the Pecorino and Lacrima di Morro d’Alba varieties, always setting ourselves ambitious wine quality objectives.
