It all began with two very young entrepreneurs, Angela and Ercole Velenosi. It was 1984. The company's head quarter is located in Ascoli Piceno, in the heart of the Marche region, about 20 kilometres from the Adriatic coast, at an altitude of about 200 metres above sea level. The winery's estates are located in the hills, where clayey and fertile soils have always been considered ideal for growing vines. There are four separate farms located in Ascoli Piceno, Castorano, Monsampolo del Tronto and Castel di Lama, plus a vineyard in the area of Ancarano, in the province of Teramo, and one in the area of San Marcello, in the province of Ancona, in the Castelli di Jesi.
