Their goal has consistently been to produce a high quality red wine based on a Syrah-Cabernet Sauvignon blend that makes it comparable to a cross between a Bordeaux and a Rhône style wine. There is also a full bodied rosé wine and one white.
The estate has a long history that was unearthed during the recent renovation works. They found ruins that include the ancient walls of the Roman Villa Palaio, dating back to ca. year 200BC, and the foundation of a Roman mausoleum from the beginning of the first century.
Additionally, there are twin Chapels from the 11th century well as the Chateau and wine caves that were converted from the estate's time as a monastery. Formal gardens have been created throughout the grounds, and recent renovations have also included the estate’s luxury Villa Palaio that is available for rent.
