We rent a typical and well-kept farmhouse, a short walk from the historic center of Cupramontana (Ancona): member of the national association "Città del vino", Cupramontana is nowadays known as the capital city of the Verdicchio wine.

Surrounded by a large garden with a variety of trees and plants, an orchard and over eighty olive trees, the property is yet easy to reach.

Ideal to relax and spend quiet moments in the open air, we will advise you on how to explore the surrounding area (hills, sea, mountains, caves, nature reserves, wine tasting tours and sports).

Additional Location Information

HISTORY
Cupramontana got its name from "Cupra": goddess of fertility and love. On this territory was brought to live a civilisation of traditional life and cultivation of the soil. During the greek-gotic battle in the VI century, the old roman village Cupramontana was completely destroyed and forgotten for ages. It were first the benedict monks and afterwards between the VIII and XI century the camaldolesian monks, who reintroduced the cultivation of vineyards. The viniculture would increase over the years and already in the 16th century you could find vineyards growing together with fieldmaple (acer campestris), a technique until recently in use.
In the 18th century they even got an overproduction, so they started exportation to other regions.
From then on, the Verdicchio grape, which grew perfectly in the local hilly soil and microclimate, became the most used grape in the area.
