This famous winery is named after the Avignonesi family, the founders of the original summer, but since 2009 the owner is a woman from Belgium: Virginie Saverys. It is revolutionized by the production, introducing organic and biodynamic farming methods to craft peculiar, genuine wines with a strong character.
Avignonesi wines defnitely express the richness and beauty of the Montepulciano territory.
These people respect Montepulciano area traditions, where they have been produced for centuries, but they have been meant to be the future of their heritage. Avignonesi winery experience begins with the importance of terroir.
