Domain: Emidio Pepe Located in the north of the Abruzzo region, Emidio Pepe’s domaine has been producing some of the finest wines in the region since the 1960s. Emidio Pepe has carved out his success story single-handedly from a one-hectare parcel in 1964. Today, his daughter and granddaughter work the domaine, which has now expanded to 15 hectares. He vinifies in a neutral concrete vat and presses his grapes by hand and foot, like his predecessors. Applying principles adopted from biodynamic management, Emidio Pepe produces characteristic, distinguished, elegant wines reflecting the region’s particularly interesting terroir.
