An oenology laboratory: experimentation meets archaeology

An oenology laboratory: experimentation meets archaeology & the most traditional dishes meets the most innovative wines.

Come with us and for one day be a part of a 100 years long “wine-family” history.

Casale Del Giglio is an incredible research project which was launched in 1985 with the planting of close to 60 different experimental vines in the ancient city of Satricum archaeological area (about 5 centuries before the rise of Rome…).

Casale del Giglio currently offers a range of 22 products: seven white wines, one rosé, seven reds, one late harvest, three grappas and an extra virgin olive oil.

WFTI guests will have an incredible wine pairing lunch with the top ones!

The latest addition to Casale del Giglio’s range is a Biancolella from the ISLAND OF PONZA.
A native of Italy’s Campania region, the Biancolella grape was introduced to the Island of Ponza from the Island of Ischia (in the Bay of Naples) during the 18th century, when the city was ruled by the Bourbon monarchs.

Be a part of a “traditional experiment” in winemaking

Starting from the cellar, we walk along the vineyards up to the 1985 Varietal Collection (weather permitting).

Let’s go back to the cellar where, going up to the terrace, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the entire winery.

We will go down to the underground aging cellar passing through the gallery of experimental micro-vinifications from the nineties for which we’re famous.

We will then reach the Natural Oasis consisting of a small lake, fed by an ancient spontaneous spring, surrounded by picturesque trees of the Mediterranean scrub.

On the way out, we will return to the cellar for the tasting of the entire line of company wines, including the internationally award-winning Mater Matuta and Aphrodisium.

Our guests will then sit down for lunch, with a menu of typical dishes prepared by our chef, also in a vegetarian version.

Each dish will be paired perfectly with one of our most important wines, and after the coffee you will also be offered our Shiraz “grappa” distillate.

Casale del Giglio subscribes to the philosophy that “the future of Italian viticulture relies on its ability to produce top quality wines at favourable prices in areas whose potential is still relatively unexplored.”
