The history of Tenuta del Priore and Col del Mondo winery is closely intertwined with emotions. The neverending yearning to embrace the land, the love for pristine nature, the hills of Pescara that gently slope down from the rows of vines to the distant urban civilization create the dimension and passion within the grapes. A history marked by the beat of three hearts, by an intimate drive to bring a life back where it had begun.
It was 1973 when the Mazzocchetti cousins created Tenuta del Priore, named after nonno Vincenzo, their grandfather, who locals used to call “the Prior” with a sense of religious respect. The three young men believed with deep faith in the production potential of Pescara hills, in the goodness of those grapes that grew and ripened with the blessing of a lush nature.
Since 2008 the company has been entrusted to Fabrizio, with a careful, farsighted management, also thanks to the valuable contribution of his wife Giovanna.
2017 was the year of the handover, when the old generation gave way to the new. The company that incorporates the Tenuta del Priore and Col del Mondo is led by Fabrizio with Antonio and Stefano Mazzocchetti, a close-knit family that sums up the business, which in 2018 merges the brands in view of new horizons, looking to grow further still, with care and quality. Under the motto ad maiora.
