Fun facts

Pecorino is a white grape variety that has been spread in Abruzzo for many years. Its origins are not so clear; the first bibliographic tracks date back to the time of Cato the Censor who classified Pecorino in the group of the Amneos together with other varieties (Greco di Tufo, Grechetto and Pignoletto). This group of grapes takes its name from the people of Amneos, native of Thessaly (Greece), who brought these grapes to Italy during their migrations. The famous writer Plinio wrote that “the wine of the Amneos is not hard, keeps well and improves after different years”. The ampelographic bulletin of the State of 1875 (file II) describes Pecorino as a grape that is cultivated in the vineyards of the middle Adriatic sea; among the wines born in these places, it’s the one which gives the early native fruit. At the end of 80’s it disappeared and locals from Abruzzo could find only a few plants in the area of Teramo and L’Aquila. Thanks to the selection work and to the courage of few viticulturists, it became popular again and now it's planted across the entire region.
