History

Davide and Laura Febo, the two young of the family are the heart and spirit of the family winery, which has been in operation for over sixty years. Grandpa Febo, like his forefathers before him, was a farmer and in the mid 60s he decided to plant his first vineyard of Montepulciano.

With the first bottling in 2018, Famiglia Febo became a reality. Laura is a translator who has worked in the publishing industry, whereas Davide has a legal background. They both made the deliberate decision to return home and revive the family tradition.  It’s a wonderful and brave story of grandchildren following the footstep of their ancestors and going back to their roots.

The philosophy

The entire family works hard to maintain the greatest aspects of the past. Tradition and innovation collide in the meticulous care paid to each and every stage of the production process, from vineyard and winery assistance through vinification.  From 2018 the family has been converting into organic farming and the main job is carried in the vineyards, trying to have healthy grapes with the least intervention. The winery’s mission is to create wines that are a true reflection of the region and the love for viticulture, and they are doing it very well!
