Region

The mountainous Abruzzo region of central Italy is situated halfway up the `boot` neighbouring Marche to the north, Lazio to the west and Molise to the south east. Abruzzo is home to one DOCG – Montepulciano d`Abruzzo Colline Teramane, and three DOCs – Cerasuolo Montepulciano dAbruzzo, Trebbiano dAbruzzo and Controguerra. Abruzzo mostly produces wines from Montepulciano but also Sangiovese, Pecorino and Passerina as well as more international varietals such as Chardonnay.

Under the brand Lunaria, they support the activities of the WWF soslupo campaign to protect native wolves in Abruzzo and Calabria. The campaign includes a petition banning the killing of the wolves and a series of actions on anti- poaching, management of stray dogs and dedicated monitoring of the species in the two regions.
